STAR RATING:*****Unmissable****Very Good***Okay**You Could Go Out For A Meal Instead*Avoid At All Costs
Adapted from a little known comic book of the same name,The Punisher is a ceaselessly exciting thrill-ride with action like you've never seen before.Many consider Dolph the most dramatically talented out the action hero bunch (Willis,Seagal,Van Damme,Schwarzenegger et al)and many may be put off here by what could be interpreted as a blank,stationary performance.In fact,what this is is a frank,startling portrayal of a man unable to emit mercy to his opponents simply because he is emotionally unable to.Like the best,it also has a sensible,compact running time,running in at just under an hour and a half,making it all the more irristible to the action conesseur.****
