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.
