Your biased review makes me want to watch this movie in theaters even though i was going to wait for it to come out on video. You could also warn people about spoilers, not that I was surprised by anything you said but someone might. Also the directors name is Lexi Alexander, not Anderson, I bet you didn't even watch this movie, you were probably too busy watching Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa...

the movie was pretty bad... the jokes were tacky and Jigsaw's voice was annoying as hell. I understand he had an accent, but my GOD! There were too many scenes that cut away from the main character- who would that be? oh right, the punisher. It's the name of the movie afterall. Too much time is spent dwelling on the angry detective and that one slimy comic relief (if you didn't believe me about the "tacky jokes", just watch the final scene and reconsider what I'm saying). I loved the Rome series, but Tom Jane was a better Frank Castle than this guy.
