Synopsis


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

    The budget production seem above fair. Of course judging a movie like this is different cus I give it 5 stars cus they did an excellent job for the character Punisher not cus I want this to win a oscar. The Punisher going through all the hit men villians is what drives this action story and succeeds. "punch line alert" The ending is a blast "punch line" So if you need to have a punisher movie skip war zone and get this one. btw Ghost Rider is a dark story too and those movies sucked So Im doing my best to be honest not bias.

    The Punisher makes it to blu-ray

    This is another Blu-ray to come out without much to offer besides the movie. If you were a fan of the movie and can't wait for there to be a re-release than this is the one for you. This movie adaptation is much better than the Dolph Lundgren version in the 80's. It is based off the 'welcome back frank' series of comics and tries hard to be nitty and gritty like the comic. The hero is seen sulking and drinking thoughout the movie and appears to have little self-respect or ambition for anything other than vengeance.

    Another must have!

    Unlike other Marvel movies like Fantastic 4, Spider-man, ect, The Punisher is a real-life movie. The Plot of this movie is such a good plot, it is impossible not to like! The actor makes the movie a believable movie, and is a great actor! It is a movie however for ages 13+, so I would not let young kids watch it. The Punisher does not only have a good plot and actor, but is also action paked! This is a movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat. You will like this movie! T.T.M.

    A great action adventure drama film! Frank Castle is a man who has seen too much death in his life, first as a Delta Force Op and later as an FBI special agent. He has managed to beat considerable odds, and is finally moving out of the field and into a normal life with him wife, Maria, and young son, Will. However, on his final assignment, the operation spins out of control and a young man, Bobby Saint, is inadvertently killed.

    Good movie

    While I think that this movie was excellent, I do not feel that it captured the essence of the Punisher's inner turmoil as well as Dolph Lundgren's 1989 version of the film. That film will never be taking seriously since it starred Dolph Lundgren. However, the Punisher was lonelier, more depressing, and the film dove deeper into his psyche in that film which fits my vision of the Punisher.

    When I first saw this movie, I was an instant fan, and viewing an extended cut like this one allowed me to relive that moment. It filled a lot of gaps that were otherwise left open, and Punisher fans are strongly urged to see this movie for what it is: A special edition cut of The Punisher that closes the circle and includes a lot of neat stuff.

    Once again, another cool Marvel character brought to life for our viewing pleasure; only The Punisher kicks butt without super powers or power suits. That's right folks, the old fashion way, with fists and guns. Watched it with my kids and my 11 year old son loved seeing a gritty hero seek justice the old fashion way.

    This movie is very underrated. This movie is awesome for any comic book buff. Sadly I cannot give it 5 stars because they did not include the extended version of the film. It is only available on DVD, but since this bluray came out after the extended release, why would they not include it?
