Bogged down by side stories
19 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

"The Punisher" has potential but moves far too slow for what it is trying to do. The first half of S1 could probably be condensed down into two episodes. Far too much time is waste on frivolous side plots and scenes that contribute nothing to the overall story. This would be excusable if those scenes led to any sort of character development, but as with most Marvel entertainment, the characters are paper thin (which is fine since it operates in the superhero genre).

Madani's entire arc is extremely boring, especially since the corrupt cop/soldier angle has been played to death in Marvel's other Netflix series already. The show needs to focus more on Frank and cut down plodding scenes that contribute nothing but confusion to a show that is at its core action based.
