Russo is able to escape from his apartment by killing the two DHS agents sent to look for him. Russo is a former Marine Corps Force Recon operative, he is a highly skilled marksman and trained, experienced killer and he currently owns a private security company and has access to a huge arsenal of weapons. Madani is well aware of all this and of how dangerous he is so it seems extremely unlike her to only send two agents to his house, knowing how dangerous and well armed he is she should of sent a fully armed tactical team.

I'v never "really" read a comic book ,, but i think this could be the closest Marvel version of it ..
19 November 2017 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

Wow !! what a journey it has been with Frank Castle over 13 long hours .. each and every episode had that mysterious element that keeps on taunting you to just go ahead and watch the next.

From episode one the plot set a high bar of Drama and Action but it always kept us intrigued with each and every new character a new sub/plot a new secret is unraveled ,, as i said on the premiere this show has been built on a solid ground and it would grow high , so it really did.. maybe for some the story itself would look a copy of what we know of the Punisher .. but believe me it is totally not .. after more than 13 years of the Movie this series just presented it's own original version of Frank Castle and it was a bet won big by Netflix.

Now, yes the plot was solid, the cinematography was high quality, coming to the script, it was really good, but i do believe there was just a couple of episodes right in the middle of the series were a bit slow and could have been cut in the production, but that would make it a 10 episodes show and that is what HBO does, not Netflix .. lol :D

As for the cast, said it before ,so i'm gonna quot myself in here "Jon Bernthal is just one of the most underrated actors on TV,, he was amazing in "Daredevil" which i think made this project come to life ,, but also still remember his unforgettable role in "The Walking Dead" as Shane , my goodness it was full of suspense on both of those previously mentioned roles and here as extension to his story on Daredevil he still preserved that tense present which made the show more suspenseful."

Ben Barnes as Billy and Paul Schulze as Rawlins were just the perfect type of villains and they did really good .. same goes for Ebon Moss-Bachrach as David Lieberman which i only watched him in comedies ,, here it was weird but enlightening in the same time , he's definitely got talent, and sure not forgetting Amber Rose Revah as Agent Madani.

Final thought, don't know if the show will be renewed, like the ending was kinda satisfying for a "Marvel" series.. Honestly i don't know if they really should renew it ,, but if they do i hope they keep it simple and original,., with that many of writers and directors (11 each) i think they will but again still No news of possible renewal so far.
