The Movie Lover: Punisher: War Zone (2008)
Punisher: War Zone (2008) opened this weekend. I was looking forward to total gratuitous gore. I mean, this is the Punisher, right? It didn't even hit a rating of 20 on Rotten Tomatoes. But, it had to be total testosterone, right? This was a unique experience for me. There wasn't nearly the amount of gore expected. Unfortunate. But the really bad thing was the whole sappy deal with the little girl....people were actually laughing out loud in the cinema. The script it was that lame. A real disappointment. How hard can it be to write a decent script for something so inherently perfect? I loved Ray Stevenson. He was perfectly cast. But not even he could carry this load of dung. Bummer.
