RT on DVD: Exclusive Clips From Twilight, Punisher: War Zone
Which Twilight set should you buy?
Hollywood has twice before attempted to bring Marvel's violent anti-hero The Punisher to life, failing miserably in both efforts. Would the third time be the charm? The answer, according to critics, was no. Though director Lexi Alexander (Green Street Hooligans) brought a certain genre-indulging flair to her Punisher: War Zone, reviews nudged this redo a few notches below its 2004 predecessor; somewhere, Thomas Jane shakes his fists in triumph. Alexander's vision catches up with Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher (Ray Stevenson), years after the tragic loss of his family, when he inadvertently lends a hand in the creation of his archnemesis, Jigsaw (Dominic West). Shot darkly and with intense, gory violence, this is a comic book thriller shot more like a horror film --- see Stevenson literally slam his fist into a poor thug's face in our exclusive red band clip below. A filmmaker commentary and making-of featurettes accompany the standard DVD, while Blu-ray viewers can use the nifty BD-Live MOLOG application to insert images and text into the film and share their own "blogs."
