SummaryAdd a Summary
People seem to have a hate on for this movie, but honestly I think it is one of the more better made and accurate comic book translations. This is the quintessential telling of the story of Frank Castle and how he becomes the Punisher, taken right from the pages of the graphic novel, with Thomas Jane doing a great job showing how complex and multilayered the character really is. The film has a very Sergio Leone feel to it, which totally helps sell it as more then just a comic book movie. In fact, the only part I really disliked in the movie with the corny exploding punisher skull in the finale, which was just silly. My only other complaint was that it had some needless nudity, but other then that it is a movie with a terrific cast, great action and pretty much everything you could ask for in a Punisher movie, sadly when the director and Thomas Jane saw where they wanted to go with the next movie they opted out, but they made it anyway and thus you have the much less cool Punisher Warzone movie with Ray Stevenson, pity.
