    I'm assuming Hensleighs script is the one Tom wanted to shoot because he wouldn't be bad mouthing his buddies script. I've had a brief back and forth with Jonathan before and he seems like a really cool down to Earth guy and obviously loyal to Jane, and Jane (whether we agree with his ideas or not) always had the best intentions. In any event I think it's better off for the franchise that they changed everything...or let's hope. Here's a comparision from someone who has read both scripts:

    There was barely any comparison, so now all I have to go on is this review and the one over at CHUD that really sounds awful too about the current script.

    Yeah this isn't a comparative. The reviewer never mentions anything from the new script.

    He already reviewed the news script in a prior post on moviehole so I guess he was assuming we all read that.

    Well he gave us a good review of the current script, now he's giving us a bad review on the original. Read both his reviews and then there's your comparison.

    I don't go to moviehole, so I never read the review. At least I don't think I have.
    I want to read the script and form my own opinion.

    Well the thread is in these forums here about the moviehole script review so you wouldn't have to go there to find it. It's right here. However I'm completely avoiding any details of any script review unless it's not being used.

    In fact you read the script review and commented on it in this thread. LOL

    I think it would be easier to just read the script myself and then judge from that, but even reading it can be different than seeing it on the big screen.

    Then ask for the damn script. LOL

    I just realized Punisher 04 has the same thread going. It wasn't there when I started to post this thread. Hell I can't leave the computer for 5 minutes without Punisher 04 stealing a bone off my plate. He he. ;)

    How do you know the person that has it would ask for something in return. Sometimes people are just nice. Oh well.

    Jane did't even know Hensleigh was involved at one point... So that falls flat. :o

    The first script wasen't great. It was okay at best... Like almost every script in need of a re-write. So that's what happend.

    From what I heard Tom & Hensleigh were always together for the 2nd film...if it were to be done they wouldn't do it without the other one.

    I take it you have the script? I've read hensleighs and it had a couple decent scenes, but it definitely needed more Punisher than what was in it.

    Do non-movie site people actually have the current script?

    I can get it in a second but I don't want it. If you want it I'll ask the person to send it to me and I'll forward it to you. If I can't reach that person there's one other person I know who might have it. I have scripts of other films some of which I can share and some I've been asked not too.

    Well, at least Hensleigh got the Ceasare massacre right, not this apparent
    crawling on a table stabbing someone with a lobster ****.

    lol i cant believe we are talking bout this, i bet its coz we are bored waiting to hear or see something about warzone, seen as we are on this subject, hensleighs script i thought was too fantastical, i mean for example the scene where frank castiglione whips a chain saw from jigsaw, slicing jigsaws arm off, then he take him out with a fork lift, its crazy like broken arrow where john travolta gets hit with a nuke lol plus someone said that the script ripped off batman 89, u know batman 89 ripped off the classic movie Metropolis, its just post modernism, nothings ever new, just redone in a new era etc.

    Is The Punisher REALLY that hard of a character to pull off that he's now on his second revamp?!?

    Wow, this guy probably failed in English when it came to doing a comparative essay.

    That did sound awful, what, does the Punisher have a hotline where he can be reached or something?!? How does Billy just call him, and since when is the Punisher such a tool to rush into a suspicious lead like that?

    A shootout in a Walmart where Spidey and Wolvie cutouts get shot?

    And the Priest angle? Surprised they didn't have Payback and that Elite guy to make that plot complete.
