The Real Punisher
8 November 2018 | by turixriosSee all my reviews

John Berthal is THE punisher; what else can I say? He is a great actor that portrays the characters emotions perfectly.

Also, this show is written very well, and includes amazing fight scenes. From the Marvel/Netflix shows, this is my second favorite. I love the dark tone.

It continues to maintain the quality these shows used to be known for, and it perfectly illustrates a serious plot with a good cast and fun characters.

My rating: 9/10 (Haven't finished S2 yet)
