The Punisher (Lions Gate 2004)
Why do we love 'em?
Who do conservatives love revenge movies?
We love justice. We love it when justice is served hard. Is is legal? No. But it's how we would all act IF (and only IF) we could get away with it. It wets our appetite. C'mon admit it. These are our movies! Libs know we love 'em. It's OK. Indulge.
This week's movie is a good one (well aren't they all?). The Punisher brushed off by most critics, is a GREAT film! I always stop and watch it even if it's in the middle! I guess you could say it's one of my favorites.
Here is the review from IMDb...
Special agent Frank Castle had it all: A loving family, a great life, and an adventurous job. But when his life is taken away from him by a ruthless criminal and his associates, Frank has become reborn. Now serving as judge, jury, and executioner, he's a new kind of vigilante out to wage a one man war against those who have done him wrong.
Here is the trailer...be sure to see this version of the movie and not the newer one!
