I finished the Netlix original, The Punisher. Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle in Season 2 of Daredevil was phenomenal, so I had been really looking forward to this series. It did not disappoint!
This adaption of The Punisher was very violent, like the comic, but did a great job of not making it all about the violence. The characters really drove this story, along with the exploration of different topics. I really liked that there was representation of multiple sides of the gun debate without actual explicit commentary. There was also a lot of representation of, like Jessica Jones, PTSD. Overall, it really did a great job of displaying Frank Castle as a three dimensional character, providing motivations for his actions instead of just showing off his actions.
I definitely recommend checking out this series if you are not completely put off by violence. This is yet another fantastic accomplishment by Marvel Studios.
