I was surprised to see him in this type of movie, but I thought his performance was good. When I started reading the comics, his presence seemed less weird because his character looked similar to him.

SchumacherH8ter, what did you think of Wayne Knight in the movie? Were you surprised to see him?
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Time to review one of the most hilariously insane movies of the last couple of years. I should have included this in ABMMW.
 
The good:
 
Ray Stevenson: Stevenson is perfect as the Punisher. He's so good, that I almost felt bad about laughing at some scenes.
 
Lexi Alexander: Lexi is the director of this and yes, the best Punisher was directed by a woman. Kind of like how GI Joe 2, directed by an American of Chinese decent, looks more faithful than the one directed by a "typical" American.* She should have directed Jonah Hex! And Ghost Rider 2.**
 
The bad:
 
The script: The script is below par. Considering the executive meddling that went on with this movie, maybe that's the reason.
 
Julie Benz: Darla's hot, but her acting in this isn't very good. Although, this is the best movie were Julie Benz fights someone named Jigsaw.
 
The awesomely bad:
 
Dominic West: West plays Jigsaw, a lunatic who gets his face damaged. West's performance is absolutely hilarious, only being upstaged by...
 
Doug Hutchison: Hutchison plays Loony Bin Jim, Jigsaw's brother. The standout scene is the scene where he and Jigsaw give a patriotic speech to a bunch of foreign stereotypes. It's so over-the-top it's almost impossible to be offended.
 
The violence: I could go into detail, but I'll just say this: the Punisher punches a guy's face off! Watching this movie with my brother was a hoot.
 
Before I end this review, a message to anyone that owns a 3DS: buy Resident Evil: Revelations!!! It's a trillion times better than the movies, but Resident Evil: Wesker's Knitting Challenge would be better. Grade: B-
 
Next-up: Dungeons & Dragons!
 
*Interestingly, Ray Stevenson is going to be in GI Joe 2.
**The idea for this review came about because I was reading the comments for the AVClub's review of GR2, and they all mentioned that Lexi Alexander should have directed it.

That's "Punisher" movies for you. Each one is worse than the last.

*/*****

Worst movie of the year.

Doug Hutchinson did appear as crazy as his character was,but his enounciation is enough to qualify it as a bad performance.Dominic West's way of speaking was annoying,but he wasn't bad.Although it did seem at one point a bad JOKER rip-off.

The premise was(supposedly)PUNISHER's inside debate wheter he should retire or not.At the end,it doesn't get solved.Nothing does.

I gave it 1,0/F/0%.I also gave 5,0/C/60% to the first movie.

The recent Punisher movies were pretty worthless attempts. I don't remember if there were any good Punisher movies (there might've been one in 1989 or 1990), but since then, there hasn't been one, and there probably never will.

By the way, now that I think about it, Meagan Good and Julie Benz, aren't the only ones that have three strikes to their name for 2008. Jason Statham also has to answer for three films this year! DEATH RACE, IN THE NAME OF THE KING: A DUNGEON SIEGE TALE and TRANSPORTER 3! (I'm letting him off on THE BANK JOB, because it wasn't that bad. In fact, it was actually pretty good.)

Yeah, Jason Statham has had a bad year. He needs to stop appearing in action movies and do something either more serious or more light-hearted. As for Carmen Electra, she has been in every Seltzerberg movie ever made, which will weigh heavy on her when it comes down to Worst Supporting Actress along side co-star Kim Kardashian. Either one of them is worthy of such a dishonor.

The same goes for poor Meagan Good, who was in "One Missed Call", "Love Guru", and "Saw 5". Her chances of "winning" are high, but I'm hoping for Kim Kardashian to get Worst Supporting Actress in the end, and Worst Actress to go to multi-time Razzie dodger Jessica Alba.

You're right on Meagan Good being in three terrible films this year, Michaels.

There is however one small difference in the two; Julie Benz actually has genuine acting talent. Which is why it's a little sadder, at least to me, that she went to waste in a trio of terrible titles this year.

By the way, I too am hoping that Kim Kardashian gets a shot at Worst Supporting Actress this year. For her atrocious turn in the equally atrocious DISASTER MOVIE! Although, she may have some serious competition from her DISTASTER MOVIE! co-star, and former Razzie "winner", Carmen Electra. (Who was also in another Jason Friedberg/Aaron Seltzer, laugh-free "comedy" this year, MEET THE SPARTANS).

Yes, apparently someone forgot to mention to the casting director that not only should the actor look like the character from the comic, but he also needs some other acting skill besides being the token- tough-white-boy-from-the-wrong-side-of-the-'hood, which is pretty much the only role Tatum ever seems to play.

Channing Tatum as Captain America? Man Cap is more f*cked than when he got killed recently.

Oh yay! Tatum as both Captain America AND Duke from GI Joe. Whatever did we do to deserve this? What's next, Brenda Song as Wonder Woman? Oh wait, DC Comics is owned by Warners, not Disney.

Never mind.

Actually, the rumor that Will Smith may play Captain America has, so far, been proven false. Now it's Channing Tatum who may get the role.
You think you know, but you have no idea.

My opinions:

20. Catwoman - Should have been #1 based solely on the fact that out of all these comic book movies, it had NOTHING to do with the source material it was "adapted" from.

19. Batman & Robin - Should #2 on the this list, and should have swept the 1997 Razzies, but was saved by "The Postman", I believe. How serious can you take a movie when every other line of dialog is a bad pun? Answer: you don't.

18. The Punisher - Should have listed all three movies here.

17. Superman IV - I all but forgot Superman by the time this movie came out, because the "Batman" movie series took off around this time.

16. Supergirl - Not much you can do with a teenage, female version of Superman. You have no choice but to do a "Gossip Girl ... with superpowers" thing.

15. Judge Dredd - "I am the law!". That seriously is the ONLY thing I remember about this movie. I take it that is a good thing?

14. Tank Girl - Saw it, then forgot about it an hour later.

13. Captain America (1990) - Yes, there will be a 2011 "Captain America" movie, as well as a "Thor" movie. This is all a set-up for IronMan, Hulk, Thor, and the Captain to team up in a crossover "Avengers" movie. Stan Lee gave Marvel Studios his blessing for Will Smith to star as the Captain. That's a bit of a twist I can live with.

12. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen - Fun guilty pleasure and nothing more. It might be Sean Connery's last movie. It's a shame for him to leave on such a down note.

11. Howard the Duck - "I'd rather not talk about it." You took the words right out of George Lucas' mouth. A window into the future of the god-awful "Star Wars" prequels.

10. Steel - "What the bloody hell was that?"  An excuse for Shaq to be in a movie. Should be #3 on this list.

9. Barb Wire - "Pamela, you suck!" Tommy Lee and Kid Rock will agree with you.

8. The Crow: City of Angels - The first one was okay, it didn't need to become the direct to DVD movie series that it is now.

7. Spawn - John Leguizamo carried this movie on his back, not that there was much for him to work with.

6. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II - "What the bloody hell was that?" Another one of my favorite guilty pleasures. This should be more like #20. Vanilla Ice is to blame for it being this close to the Top 5.

5. Blade: Trinity - Like Leguizamo in "Spawn", Biel's looks and Reynolds' wise-ass remarks carried this movie ... and that wasn't enough to make it good.

4. Elektra - "About as bad as the actress with a similar last name." That's true! Poor Garner and that binding contract she signed when she did "DareDevil" (I'm surprised that isn't on this list).

3. Ghost Rider - The most light-hearted movie about the devil and demons ever made. Barely any thought was put into this movie. Sure, Ghost Rider is among Marvel's Z-List titles, but even he deserves better than this.

2. Red Sonja - Yes, there will be a 2009 remake. With Robert Rodriguez - the man behind "Sin City", the most faithful comic book adapatation to date - backing it, at least it will be more loyal to its source material than Nelson's version. That doesn't really mean it will be a good movie though.

1. Son of the Mask - "It probably deserved Worst Picture more than "Dirty Love" did." "Alone In The Dark" deserved it even more. This was the first sign that sequels to Jim Carrey movies that don't star Jum Carrey are a bad idea. Although I wouldn't label it the worst comic book movie ever ... just a bad movie, period.
