"Kill Bill, Vol. 2 is in a different league than The Punisher (Warner Bros.), also opening this week: a sickeningly manipulative, by-the-numbers revenge movie in which the presumed-dead hero (Thomas Jane) comes back to get the people who wiped out his father, mother, wife, and little son. It's a bloodbath with one thing on its mind: Making you go, "Yeah! Punish 'em! Make 'em die slowly!" and then, "Yeah! He nailed 'em! He nailed 'em all." It's a thuggish Steven Seagal movie with the Marvel Comics imprimatur—shameful."
