‘Punisher: War Zone’ Is Slowly Going The Way Of ‘Die Hard 4’

15 08 2008

That’s right. The execs over at Lionsgate want to cut Punisher: War Zone down to a PG-13 rating. I can’t think of anything that would be more damaging to this film than that. Especially after we’ve already seen that insanely violent trailer. The actual reason behind the whole ordeal is unknown, but there has been much speculation that the execs think that since The Dark Knight was a PG-13 movie and was so successful, the same could be said for PWZ, however, as most Punisher fans would tell you, Batman doesn’t kill people, Frank Castle does…in extremely violent ways…and the only way to be true to the source material is to present Frank Castle killing people in extremely violent ways. You can’t do that in a PG-13 movie. While the movie has already been generating some negative buzz ever since the director, Lexi Alexander, was cut off entirely from the production, giving the film a PG-13 rating would only make matters worse and Lionsgate would ultimately be shooting themselves in the foot. What do you think?
