Just when he thinks his quest to avenge his family is complete, Frank Castle finds out that there is more to the story — and more folks to slaughter — before he is actually done. This time, he has an accomplice.

Full disclosure: I watched the first 5 episodes in between visits to Comic Con. When I got home Saturday night, I stayed up until 4:30 in the morning to finish watching; I could not stop. The story is compelling and very moving, although the co-plot with Micro and his family is the real crux of the narrative. I was actually tearing up a couple of time over their part of the tale.

However, my tolerance for gore and torture went grey by the time this was over; Frank is extraordinarily brutal at times and I had a hard time with some of the graphic violence.

I’ll give this a high recommendation, but be warned: It is NOT for the kiddos. No post-credit scenes to worry about.

Flytrap rating: 8/10
