Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher Review

AvengersConfidentialMost time I don’t pay much attention to the Marvel animated movies.  How ever the newest one, Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher caught my eye.  The only reason I decided to watch this was because of the Punisher.  Think he is a pretty cool character.  Before watching this looked up the plot, it has Black Widow and the Punisher teaming up to take out the terrorists. Who stole S.H.I.E.L.D technology.  This is a pretty standard plot.  Next took a look at the trailer > here and find out it has an anime look to it.

Well it is better than I thought it would be.  However not great.  It is so by the numbers with plot points and the twists we have see an millions times.  Which makes it a bit boring.  The animation was very well done.  Not a big fan of the anime style but it works for this type of movie.  The only thing I didn’t like about the animation was the lighting.  Has the over bloom FX thing going on.  This is worth checking out if you are a Marvel fan.  If you are not don’t think this will turn you into a fan.  It’s a rental at best.

Planet Hulk Review

PlanetHulk I look forward to the direct to DVD animated movies.  The newest one out from Marvel Animation is called Planet Hulk.  Well this one wasn’t that great.  The Hulk does talk in this one so that is nice.  Like the last bunch of animated movie from Marvel or DC they have been more graphic with some of the fighting.  That is nice to see too.  Since they are on DVD and not TV they can get away with more.  The story was a bit generic.  You can see all the plot points coming a mile away.

This is a rent for sure unless you are a big Hulk fan.  Hulk Vs. was a much better Hulk animated movie.
