Excerpt: “Who Punishes You?” That line is spoken by Julie Benz in Punisher: War Zone , and the only one with any thought, care, or logic in the entire movie. As the third attempt by Hollywood to make a film about Marvel Comics anti-hero, War Zone fails too, although in a different way. For instance, take the lead villain, Jigsaw. Played by Dominic West, the character is campy and over the top, while West gives him the most embarrassing accent you could possibly imagine.
Excerpt: This is Hollywood’s third stab at making a movie out of the Punisher, an ultra-violent comic book character known mostly for his love of guns and a tendency to kill criminals rather than bothering with expensive things like fair trials. Each attempt at bringing him to the screen has been slightly better than the last, but only slightly.
