Critic Reviews for Marvel's The Punisher Season 2

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (3)

Even though he was a compelling scene-stealer in Daredevil, Frank Castle/The Punisher has never felt quite right in his own show. Season two will do little to change that impression.

What makes this season of "The Punisher" work so well is that it feels less like a Season 2 and more like a Season 5, a standalone story in the established adventures of Frank Castle.

Here's the most unforgivable sin of the second season of The Punisher: You have a magnificent performance like this one at your disposal, and this is what you choose to do with it?

There was clearly no one building this story with knowledge that Netflix would be cancelling all of their Marvel shows and that is a shame because the third season could have fnally been worthy of the name of the show.

Why are we coming back to all these people again?

This could have been eight episodes.

I enjoyed this season. I always seem to walk away from The Punisher wondering if it might actually low-key be my favorite of the Marvel/Netflix shows. But it's better when it doesn't try to justify itself, or defend itself.

Season 2 is a good 13 episode story, with plenty of action and great performances from both Jon Bernthal and Ben Barnes as Frank Castle and Billy Russo respectively.

One wishes the show had listened to its titular character: The Punisher is at its best when it just lets the Punisher be the Punisher.

Jan 29, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Season two... was a frustrating watch: the pacing felt off, the addition of Giorgia Whigham as Amy didn't quite click, and all in all the season had less drive than its predecessor.
