News & Interviews for Marvel's The Punisher: Season 1
... where John Wick invented a superhero, crafted his universe, and detailed the entirety of his mission in a tightly paced 90 minutes, The Punisher has upwards of 11 hours to do the same thing, and all too often it's a plodding slog.
The Punisher doesn't always hit the perfect note but you have to give it chops for trying to do something a little different, and eschewing genre conventions. It's just too bloody long.
Under The Punisher's Olympian gruffness hums a low-wattage charisma to which viewers blessed with the superpower of extreme patience may warm.
As usual, the production is immaculate, and Bernthal -- who never disappoints -- is his usual self. You may, however, wish (I did) that his Punisher wasn't such a humorless, unmitigated jerk.
The Punisher doesn't have much time for substance. It's simultaneously too much and not enough.
