Punisher War Zone 0/10...
I'm not a picky movie watcher. If it holds my attention, it's getting at least a 5. That being said, I threw this on after the All Star game last night for background noise and ended up staying awake for the whole movie. And not because it was good.
Now, I'm a big Punisher fan. I read and own the entire comic book run (around 80ish issues) by Garth Ennis and it was some of the best comic reading I ever experienced. I heard the movie was weak, but I figured it would at least be OK for a fan such as myself.
This movie was so ridiculously awful, I had to watch the whole thing just to see if it was as bad at the end as it was in the beginning/middle. I also felt it was my duty to get a complete picture so I could come on this thread and warn you all to not make same mistake I did.
From the ridiculous plot to the not so special effects, this movie was an absolute train wreck. But nothing, and I mean nothing, was as grating as the fake New York accents these people tried sporting. I'm a huge Julie Benz fan, but that accent made me...
...wish that Trinity made a cameo in this movie
Now, all of this makes for a pretty crappy movie. However, what really pushed it over the top was the moving performance of Doug Hutchison as Loony Bin Jim (yes, that was his real name). By 'moving', I mean 'a fork towards my eyes/ears every time he was onscreen to help ease the pain of watching/hearing this aural/visual enema of an acting performance'.
So please, avoid this movie at all costs. It is easily in the bottom 3 movies I have ever seen. As a comparison, the other 2 movies were the times I accidentally walked in on animal porn.
