Yes, yes. I know we’re a "horror" site. But hell, if it’s cool and we want to talk about something, we’ll talk about it. Today, PUNISHER: WAR ZONE hits theaters. Now, besides being a huge horror fanatic, I’ve also always been a huge comic book fan. In particular, I love the over-the-top crazy work of writer Garth Ennis. Hence I’ve always longed for a proper PUNISHER movie that captured his take on the character. Early word is that PUNISHER: WAR ZONE isn’t exactly a good movie, but it’s definitely a gory good time. (As you can see for yourself below!)
So this weekend, I’m going to watch the big guy with the skull embol kill and punish criminals in the most violent and creative of ways. Watch this redband trailer and tell me that doesn’t look like a ridiculously good time?
(My favorite moment is at the 50 second mark when The Punisher punches a guy so hard, his face caves in. Crazed!)
PUNISHER: WAR ZONE was directed by Lexi Alexander and stars Ray Stevenson, Dominic West, Doug Hutchison, (fan fave) Julie Benz (SAW V, DEXTER, RAMBO, the upcoming BOONDOCK SAINTS 2), Dash Mihok and Wayne Knight. It’s in theaters today!
