Best Punisher: War Zone Poster Arrives Fashionably Late!

I don't exactly know how this poster got lost in the mix, but Lionsgate has release one more poster for Punisher: War Zone and it's easily the best one. At this point, since the movie comes out today, you know I wouldn't be running anything on this unless it were really worth it, and this time it is. I found this poster tonight and I'm quite saddened knowing that Lionsgate didn't put this out much earlier. Maybe a few more moviegoers would've actually considered seeing this movie if Lionsgate would've taken their posters a bit more seriously? Either way, check this out, and read on for my opinions on the movie itself as well.
Going into Punisher: War Zone you've got to know it's a mindless action movie. With that in mind, it is pure fun. Lexi Alexander isn't a bad director, but it does have an awful script. The action scenes are incredibly over-the-top and fun for those desensitized to violence and it's fairly easy to push through the shitty writing. I personally liked it better than Thomas Jane's Punisher, but that may just be me.
Punisher: War Zone is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Lexi Alexander of only Green Street Hooligans previously. The script has gone through numerous revisions, however the latest draft was finished by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, who both wrote the script for Iron Man. Punisher: War Zone arrives in theaters from Lionsgate starting on December 5th this weekend. See you in theaters!
