This punisher is the best one ! I love it
27 December 2017 | by ruhsaSee all my reviews

This is quite possibly one of the best Netflix series ever made. Easily the best when it comes to the marvel offerings.The story is woven brilliantly painfully. Some of the items are a bit predictable, but thats the case with Hollywood. This is one of the most action-filled shows I've ever seen. struggling now to figure out whats "next" to watch. Frank Castle/The Punisher is one of the best anti-hero characters ever written.The Punisher, as portrayed by Jon Bernthal, is an excellent and realistic rendering of a Marvel comic vigilante. Finally, someone really took the time to develop a character that we can relate to as a human.I understand why people voted this low. They have no brains, they don't care for storytelling, and they don't like movies with guns and knives.

The people that called this show slow are the people that like Michael Bay movies. They want fast, fast, fast payoff to everything. They don't understand how a story is built--especially an origin story. Ben Barnes was great as Billy Russo. Ebon Moss-Bachrach was a well done Mi cro. Amber Rose Revah was solid as the Homeland agent Dinah Madani. Paul Schulze was good as the CIA baddie Rawlins, and really everyone else in the cast was solid to great. I also loved seeing Deborah Ann Woll return as Karen Page (only wish they had her pop up more during the season).

All-in-all this is one of the best shows from the Marvel Netflix line up. And I'm always going to be a bigger Punisher fans.
