The Punisher: War Zone
Posted by munchkines on February 27, 2009
Last night, I watched the latest movie that was just out in the cinemas, The Punisher: War Zone. To my opinion, it is one hell of a movie. The action was good but it is only suitable for adults as most of the scene is gruesome. Imagine that an elderly lady’s head is hacked? Anyway, the whole story is about The Punisher (Frank Castle) protects the city from the ruthless mobs but the people of New York is not accepting him. I think most of the comic superheroes life is like that. Just look at Batman, Spiderman and all those other superheroes, they are having a hard time adapting to the normal living.
I wouldn’t say more about the movie. Just check it out yourself. It is worth the money to spend on this movie. Hopefully you all will enjoy it as much as I do.
Infamous vigilante, anti-hero Frank Castle is six years into his vengeance driven zeal as the Punisher when he brutally assaults a “beat the rap” party for notorious mob boss Gaitano Cesare. During the course of the massacre, he hideously disfigures overeager gangster Billy Russoti and murders a mafia lackey who turns out to be an undercover FBI agent.
Agent Paul Budiansky, the ex-partner of the undercover Fed, joins the NYPD’s “Punisher Task Force” to help bring Castle to justice, once and for all.
A facially mutilated Russoti recovers from his run-in with the Punisher with revenge on his mind and recruits a massive army of psychotic killers, gangbangers, and mobsters under his new alias “Jigsaw.”
Distraught that he has now become the very evil he swore to battle, Castle is content to hang up his guns and quit the justice business for good. However, plans quickly change once he learns that Jigsaw has not only kidnapped the surviving wife and child of the dead federal agent but now has also freed his committed psychopathic brother, James aka “Loony Bin Jim.”
Forced back into the war, the Punisher now has to face off against Jigsaw’s formidable army in order to save the lives of an innocent family his actions put in the firing line “Clock’s ticking.”
