Punisher: War Zone (2008)
What happens when you reboot something that doesn't need to be rebooted.
I watched this the other day, and i remember when it first came out, i remember everyone being on Ray's nutsack. "oh my gosh, he's so brutal! the last guy sucked!" IDIOTS!!! This movie looked like a TV movie, especially in comparison to Punisher 04. As a typical reboot...they overdue what the fans were asking for. they wanted more action...they gave us too much! and so unrealistic too, and stupidly cheesy. heads blowing like cherry tomatoes from 9mm. Punching through peoples skulls.
this movie is a solid 4 out of 10...seriously. pros: -Jigsaw makeup and actor was decent. -First action scene/party
cons: everything else! -worst acting ever -punisher said 3 lines in the whole movie -super anticlimactic -every set looked like a warehouse -no story at all -can't even see his SKULL!! -using the f-word every second makes me think i'm watching a lame arse porno with worse acting.
stupid movie. the next one will hopefully find a nice balance. personally, i never thought this should have gotten rebooted int he first place. 04 punisher needs a SEQUEL NOT REBOOT.
Here Lies Revelations (2008)
Not that bad. Interesting story, but bad camera angles.
First off. I love Aaron Schoenke's work. I remember when i first saw Patient J, and was mesmerized by the intricate story, plot twists, acting, script, camera angles, and set. The look and feel of everything in Patient J was top notch and was very professional. I believe that if Aaron sticks to his directing style like in patient J, then he will go places.
Now, on to Here Lies Revelations. I thought that this movie was still not finished do to the fact that on Bat in the Suns' website says its "coming soon". so they really need to update their website badly. Though i stumbled upon it here on IMDb, saw the low score and was surprised. i found it on google, and watched as i ate me chicken dumplings. it wasn't that bad actually. i saw some things, that made me very happy and others, not so much.
The music is absolutely outstanding! Sean outdid all of his previous work in my opinion; the music made this for me.
The makeup was good and looked realistic.
Acting was okay, not amazing but not horrible either.
Great sets as usual.
Good costumes too.
Camera angles from hell(pun intended)! They were just seemingly the one thing that made this look amateurish.
Sound effects for a couple of things: gun shots, bird stabbing, etc...were a little disappointing and only made it look more amateurish.
a couple of scene transitions that didn't flow very well. Which is the most important thing about filming...the flow.
Somethings in the story are completely impossible to interpret. like why was the guy a coal miner, etc.
all in all. it was enjoyable to watch. especially the second half. But maybe next time, Aaron and co. should try out some better camera angles, and scene transitions and i promise then it will look much better.
can't wait to see what they do next.
