An absolute treat!
29 September 2005 | by Michael_J_UnganoSee all my reviews

First Round was the best comic book movie adaptation which was produced on a shoe-string budget that I have ever seen. The characters (Wolverine,Kingpin and of course Punisher) literally jumped off a comic book page.The casting was better than any big budget film that was recently made.The actors chosen to portray these characters' performance was true to the spirit of this genre.The story was right on to the origin of Frank Castle. The special effects were incredible. Kudos to the cast and crew of First Round for making an excellent and an enjoyable movie not just a trailer. I am looking forward to the next project from this talented group of individuals.
