FBI Special agent Frank Castle had it all, a loving family, a great life, and an adventurous job. But when his life is taken away from him by a ruthless criminal and his associates, Frank has become reborn.
Now serving as judge, jury, and executioner, he's a new kind of vigilante out to wage a one man war against those who have done him wrong.
It's a pretty good film. Lot's of blood, gore, violence, and fast paced action, but you can easily tell it's right out of a comic, as nothing is real. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but there's just a few things that annoyed me.
The first one is that after fighting the russian, Frank is all beat up, barely able to stand, so they hide him in the elevator thing, while Dave and the tubby guy stay in his apartment. Once the bad guys have left, Frank is suddenly wide awake and able to walk again, barely affected by any of the damage he just took.
The second is near the end, after Mr Saint just killed his best friend and wife, he goes to the club, offering $50 thousand to whoever kills Frank for him. What I don't get is why they all suddenly start drinking champagne and hanging round at the club as if they're celebrating something, giving the Punisher the opertunity to kill them all.
The rest of it is great and Thomas Jane is a great actor, perfect for this role.
