Nanners is Punisher: War Zone

Nanners thought that maybe next time Lionsgate could use Nanners as The Punisher instead of Dolph Lundgren, Tom Jane or Ray Stevenson. I mean, it certainly couldn’t hurt the films. Just look at this weekend’s dismal $4 million take on the Ray Stevenson version. Ouch. Here’s a photoshopped idea of what that would look like.

Nanners as The Punisher

Be sure to read DVDFuture’s “glowing” review of the film.

Also, be sure to check out the trailer, which really did make the film seem cool:

  1. First off….Great Blog….!

    I won’t attempt an
    objective review. My knife is in it….LOL
    I loved the movie.
    It was made by hard driving people about a hardened character. who refuses to ignore the darker side of realitys we all face in today’s world .
    He has perfected the job of human trash removal .
    The word RELENTLESS (Websters Dictionary defines the term)
    re-lent-less; Unmoved by love or pity: Unceasing, as without mercy. Fits this guy to a T.
    Some people can’t stomach the truth that this character illustrates so well.
    Frank Castle is doing a job……he’s doing it because a million
    others who ‘s job it really is …are to soft, fat, corrupt , scared
    or lazy to do Justice.
    Frank does it without a mask or a cape, he says little about it because deep inside it hurts him to know that this is the
    only answer to a problem. Unfettered, the corrupt dish out untold human misery.
    Frank is the sin eater, the True Dark Knight.
    Unlike Batman, Superman, Spiderman and the rest of the comic crew, Frank Castle is a modern day Wyatt Earp.
    He promptly and effectively answers the call in the order received.

    When the smoke clears in the real human experience… comment remains… even though coined by a real life villain who’s idea of right was on Jigsaw’s side of the fence……. “Justice comes from
    the barrel of a gun”.
    It’s HARD, FAST and BRUTAL….but….TRUE.

    Could the movie have been better………of course, and Micky Mouse could have been better too.
    I think some exceptionally vehement anti Punisher War Zone Movie reviews….are based on internal Cat Fighting in the movie business,
    and let’s face it….Frank Castle is NOT Politically Correct.

    Thanks to Ray Stevenson, Lexi Alexander, Jon Barton and all for this Great Movie.

  2. Well, I thank you for your take on the film. I think you have some interesting points. The Punisher has always been my favorite comic book anti-hero.

    That said, I don’t think you see eye-to-eye with either Garth Ennis (the creator of the more recent Punisher graphic novels) or director Lexi Alexander, both of which intended the film, and the graphic novel series, to be a satire of abhorrent, crazed militant culture. This is a story about a man who’s guttural instinct to kill has driven him mad. He’s just as much a villain as the corrupt–the results of which in this film, he kills an innocent man. The film is not meant to be “real” in the slightest. There’s hardly a moment that feels such. People are meant to howl at the Punisher’s violent actions and laugh at Jigsaw. I suggest you read Garth Ennis’ forward on the comic “Welcome Back, Frank” to see what he intended with the series.

    But, I can see your point and to be frank, I think a story that’s more targeted to your ideology could be incredibly fascinating.

    Even if “The Punisher: Warzone” wasn’t meant to be that way, that’s what you walked away with. I’m glad you saw the film and I’m glad you gleamed what you did. Like I said, I’m a fan of the series, so even though I might not be a fan of the film (I think the script killed this one), I’d still like to see future installments.

    Oh, and about the critics, I think you’ve got your facts wrong there. They hated the film because the script was terrible, the gore was over-the-top and the film wavered between being serious and being satire (probably because the script was so terrible). I don’t understand your “internal cat fighting” comment. I don’t think anyone was “anti Punisher War Zone.” I think they just hated a movie that had potential to be good, and fun. That happens.

    Thanks for reading and (I assume)
