Finally the long wait is over! And you know what... I like it very much!
This movie is basically a classic Punisher story, Frank is after some mobsters and wants to destroy their nest.
It is a very simple plot and a huge Garth Ennis feel through the entire film and at the end we know this was made by fans for the fans, this team put a lot of love through all this fan film and i thank them for all this effort with minimum resources. This film just show to the Big Studios that it's possible to make a great Punisher movie.
Let's talk about the Punisher, Shawn Baichoo did a good work personifying the character, despite all of the critics i have seen in this blog, he captured flawlessly the psych of the character. I don't care if he is baldy or skinny. To me the Punisher is more than a simple man, it doesn't matter if he is skinny or fat, long hair or baldy. It's someone that sacrificed a pieceful life for a mission, waging a war for those who deserve it. This is a fan film and i don't care about the physical differences if the actor portrayed the psych of the character flawlessly. The shooting scene was really good, plenty of action and very well choreographed.
I liked how Amber Goldfarb portrayed Elektra, she did it great! She is really beautiful and her hand-to-hand combat pleased me, she behaved liked a real assassin.
During the combat with Amber, Shawn Baichoo did a great job by showing some simple and effective movements, remembering me that Frank was once great fighter and not only a marksmanship. For moments i was afraid for seeing some fancy movements for the "show" but he did not fall for this error. Gladly. Although he could use more the surroundings to give more "pain" to Elektra... Maybe next time.
Many thanks for J. Ambrus, Baichoo, Goldfarb, Malloch, Caltabiano ( Excelent Vinny Rizzo) and all the staff in this fan film, i really hope to see a sequel in the future.
OVERALL SCORE : 4 out of 5
