Punisher "made in Brazil"
12 November 2018 | by aruametelloSee all my reviews

The movie is entertaining but with noticeable pacing problems. Overall a good fit for the "graphic novel adaptation" type of movie and some extra points for being a Brazilian production succeeding at doing it.

Pros: * high production value. * "Down to earth common man driven to do bigger things" type of plot. * "What if Punisher was Brazilian and targeted high valued political targets"?

Cons: * bad execution of the plot mostly due to bad pacing. * the theatrical cut feels like its missing scenes due to some odd editing.
