‘The Punisher’ Alright so far, but not amazing either
The Punisher is a well known anti-hero. He has starred in a few films, and countless comics. None of these films have really done him justice though. When he showed up on Daredevil season 2, he was freaking amazing! Jon Bernthal brought new elements to this character not seen on any screen before. So naturally, a spin-off was announced. I was able to watch screener of the first six episodes, and this is my thoughts on them.
You can read the plot for The Punisher here:
After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
The first episodes of The Punisher were alright, but not as great as I had hoped they would be. We get to learn more about Frank Castle, and some of the things he faced as a soldier. The supporting cast is not bad, but kind of take a back seat to Castle. There is plenty of action, some good drama, and lots of violence. I hope this show gets better in the later episodes, because right now I liked it, but didn’t love it either. It is hard to say if this show will be good or not, but it has the potential to be.
