Managed to snag free tickets from my LCS to a preview screening of Punisher War Zone later tonight. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Sounds like a fun movie.... but how was the swearing? I can handle violence, but I'm not a fan of excessive swearing.

About typical for an American PG-13/R-rated action film (meaning the bad guys swear a lot, the good guys hardly do). An average Sopranos episode probably has more expletives in it.

Thanks for the review ZD, I've been mildly curious.  With money and time being so tight, I think I'll wait to rent this one.

I went and caught it after work today.
Its exactly what it looks like with no apologies -- a B-Grade action flick that managed to use its name to score a budget for some really excessive violence. Very little plot, a forced "emotional" story aspect, really bad New York accents and a hammy villain just this side of Caeser Romero. It doesn't try to be anything more than that. On that level though, I thought it worked incredibly well. Its a really good matinee flick if you're into that kind of thing.

So far most of the rotten tomatoes reivews read "professionally I'm supposed to hate it but I kind of dont" including lines like "This movie has better acting than it deserves" and "non stop over the top violence, which is predictable".

Saw it Saturday aftenoon. Me and my buddies have been going around saying "apple sauce" in a bad accent ever since. It's one of those godawful movies you'll just love watching.
