This movie is god awful.It bombed at the box office for a good reason.If you see a Punisher movie then make sure its one staring Thomas Jane as its much better as well as much cheaper and can even be found in local Wal-Mart Bargin Bins.
I loved the first Punisher Movie, but the second doesn't follow the story line of the first. Different guy, different family, different circumstances surrounding the family's deaths. On it own merit, if I hadn't expected it to be a continuation of the first movie I would have gave it a better review. I thought the writers changed too much from the original.
I bought this based on customer reviews. . and also because I love Clancy Brown. But I'm sorry it just didn't keep me engaged. There were a couple factors that just made it a "yawn-fest" for me. First of all it starts out very slow and so you're dealing with a slow movie AND the very dark scenes of cowboys shooting in the dark-- makes it hard to stay awake. From start to finish it just seemed to drag on. The creatures during the last 10 minutes were pretty decent, too bad you had to wait until the end to really see them. Which I might add they looked like "underground, slither on your belly" version of the creatures in Doom.
The end was anti-climatic like the rest of it. It was overall kinda boring. I'm a horror movie fanatic, and most I like-- but oddly enough this one just didn't do it for me.
