Punisher's RT score is 75% at the moment.  Most seem to like it, but there are problems with pacing (as always) and I think some are bothered by the gun violence.

Ugh, PC pansies. The Polygon reviewer brought up the disturbing imagery of a "white man with a gun".

I'm sorry we didn't alter a fundamental aspect of the character and story in adapting it because of how sensitive you are.

If Punisher was an Asian woman with guns, there would be critical acclaim!

But if that same Asian taught a white guy to be a martial artist, people would go right back to being pissed off.

That's the problem, it shouldn't matter. Identity politics should have no barring on the quality of a narrative.

"What is hypocritical about the criticism "Juice" has inspired is that at least this film concerns real violence, violence similar to that on our streets daily, rather than the clean, fantasy violence we tolerate in a huge number of films. You can see posters for "Kuffs" showing a smirking Christian Slater with a gun, or for "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot," showing an elderly woman pointing an enormous pistol at us."

Sherlocks and Watsons for days.

The cycle is nearly complete.

Lucy Liu directed an episode of Luke Cage, so it probably won't take much more to get her in front of the camera.  Then we get the guy who played Sherlock in Elementary to be MODOK or whoever.
