movieartman's Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher review

Avatar image for movieartman

Really Great Animated film from Madhouse & Marvel


- opening credits are fantastic, the rough detailed characters are very very well rendered and brought to life. very comic booky but hard edged

- would love for the character designer and artist of this movie to draw a marvel comic series

- city and port backgrounds are lush and beautifully detailed and rendered

- action is fast and brutal, hits hard, character movement even for human characters such as punisher and widow are exaggerated, in a good way

- the scenes in the snow are absolutely gorgeous

- all the various semi obscure villains making appearances where awesome

- the shot where zemo states his disappointment, and he looks down to a window that shatters and, someone with a sword walks out the rooms door, who was that?

- the hulks entrance is freaking epic

- the entire final battle royale showdown was fantastic

- a few of the large distance shots of the entire battle where animated less well than the rest of the film

- wish we had gotten more thor action shots, madhouse really really needs to make a thor anime

- elihas starr was a interesting villain, at times his whining to widow grates on the nerves and other times the emotion between him and widow feels real

- orion was a pretty damn cool lead foe

- instrumental rock style soundtrack was great

- widow is beautiful and sexy without and rarely becomes too hyper fan servicy as some has claimed, there is some for sure, but its the right amount and its awesome

voice wise she is just right, sultry, but fun and lighthearted without seeming like she is trying to hard to be such

- punisher is very menacing thruout, and they give him alot more development than i expected

- finale thoughts - really damn fun film with VASTLY better animation than the last 2-3 new 52 based dc films

    After interfering with a SHIELD operation, one too many times, Frank Castle, the vigilante known as The Punisher is captured by SHIELD. Fury however dosen’t want to send him to prison, he’s to useful to be locked away. Instead he pairs him with the Black Widow Natalia Romanova to investigate the shadowy organization Leviathan.I have not enjoyed the majority of Marvel and Madhouse studios collaborations. This isn’t an aesthetic distaste, while I find some of the “fan servi...

    Avenger and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Black Widow, must stop a terrorist organization known as Leviathan, from spreading fear and chaos across the globe through advanced weaponry and biologically enhanced soldiers. However, a job like this is too big for even one S.H.I.E.L.D. agent turned Avenger, that's why she's going in with the best backup one could possibly hope for; The Punisher! This is probably one of Marvel's BEST animated movies. We know by obvious facts that Marvel is dominating the live ac...
