    Synopsis


    Punisher: War Zone
    Marvel Comics' vigilante character The Punisher gets another big-screen outing in this third film incarnation of the character, this time from Green Street Hooligans director Lexi Alexander. Fueled by revenge and aided by his trusted weapons expert, Microchip (Wayne Knight), vigilante Frank Castle (Rome's Ray Stevenson) turns the New York City streets red with blood as he takes down each and every member of the crime syndicate responsible for the death of his wife and two kids. As the law-appointed "Punisher Task Force" closes in on him, the antihero does battle with Billy Russoti (Dominic West), aka Jigsaw, a nickname given by him to reflect the disfigurement handed to him by Castle. With the help of his psychotic brother, Loony Bin Jim (Doug Hutchison), Jigsaw recruits the criminals of the city to band together to bring down The Punisher, using the wife (played by Dexter's Julie Benz) and daughter of a slayed FBI agent as bait. Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Nick Santora provide the screenplay for the Lionsgate release. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    The Punisher
    An ordinary lawman goes outside the law to carry out his own brand of justice in this dark-themed thriller. Frank Castle (Thomas Jane) is an FBI agent who deeply loves his wife and son, but is also strongly devoted to his work. Castle's investigation of a powerful crime cartel leads to a gunfight which claims the life of a young boy, whose father is underworld kingpin Howard Saint (John Travolta). Furious and eager for revenge, Saint arranges for Castle and his family to be murdered in retaliation. However, while Castle's wife and son are killed, he somehow survives, even though he's believed to have perished. Bent on stopping Saint once and for all, Castle remakes himself as The Punisher, a ruthless and heavily armed killing machine who will not rest until Saint and his crew have been wiped clean from the Earth. Based on a Marvel Comics character first introduced in 1974, The Punisher also stars Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Laura Elena Harring, Roy Scheider, and Kevin "Big Sexy" Nash. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Watching these is a punishable offense

      Just as a FYI, this is a packaged set. That's two separate movies, discs, cases, artwork that are packaged together. Not a double feature disc. So that is a good thing for collectors. The video and audio are great, but the movies themselves are just bad. I had an itch to revisit these, remembering that they weren't great when they appeared in theaters. Nothing has changed. Campy and lackluster the both of them. The first lacks the gritty violence of the comics and the second has the violence but some terrible character embodiment that is laughable and dialogue. Not my cup of tea.

      I did not know the purchase came with both movies packaged separately. Very pleased with my purchase. Both movies may not be the best, but offer something for all Punisher fans. The Punisher with Thomas Jane has higher profile acting and a higher budget to work with, while Punisher Warzone offers fans of the MAX series the over the top violence and more brutal Punisher you would expect.

      The 2 DVD set is a good value and I would recommend getting both discs if they were equally good. The original Punisher has a good story, acting and action, a very enjoyable movie. The second one is a waste of time unless all you care about is action, there is plenty of that but the story is uninteresting and boring.

      product arrived the next day, which was shocking. 2 Punisher movies for 8.99 was a great deal. The Thomas Jane Punisher is OK but the Punisher War Zone is a crazy, violent and often funny rendition of the Punisher comic book character. This one is not for kids. I am shocked WZ even got made, love it.

      I've always enjoyed Punisher 1 & 2. Now with the Punisher being in Daredevil season 2 and getting his own Netflix series later this year, the price was right on this 2 movie deal and couldn't pass up the opportunity to add both to the collection.

      By far my favorite comic book anti hero. The Punisher has great action, drama and a awesome story line. The Punisher War Zone is non stop action and very gory. Absolutely Love it!

      So, The Punisher with Thomas Jane was a remake of the Dolph Lundfren version. The Punisher War Zone was a retelling of both of these. Not bad but not great either.

      So this was a great deal. Warzone was not a great punisher movie, but for a few extra bucks over full price on the Thomas Jane movie, why not
