Jon IS the Punisher
17 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I've never been a great fan of the Punisher as Marvel likes to screw up context--mixing him with superheroes. That's not the Punisher. The Punisher was Garth Ennis's Punisher. Jon's Punisher is the Punisher.

-----------

Jon, buddy, no one does the Punisher like you! You make us FEEL the Punisher because it's like you're not acting. In everything I've seen you in, the delivery flows completely naturally. A simple example is when you're doing the "drinking coffee" shtick. It's flawless in it's simplicity because it appears so natural--completely unrehearsed. That's a simple example, but typical of your acting.

When it comes time to deliver the "reckoning," you do it brutally and with that emotional distance, a causal "taking out the trash." You make us believe the Punisher is real, is really peed off, and won't ever get over the family was killed. But the punishing is...cathartic.

Anyhow, good job! As an aside, I've always thought The Walking Dead went down the crapper after you left.

-------------

I recommend the Punisher even if you have no clue who he is. My wife likes the Marvel movies, but loathes the various Netflix Marvel series. She likes Jon, though, and likes the Punisher.

As far as I'm concerned, Netflix has redeemed itself for the craptastic Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and (shudders) The Defender--four of the whiniest shows on TV, excepting The Walking Dead, of course...it's king of the blubbering and whining.
