Superhero films have become a major trend in the 21st Century, with Marvel and DC comic book properties being transformed into lavish CGI-driven blockbusters concerning fanciful protagonists. 2004's The Punisher may be based on a ... read more

Those who do evil to others - the killers, the rapists, psychos, sadists - you will come to know me well. Frank Castle is dead. Call me... The Punisher.

Wow. Despite the blood and violence, I still fell completely in love with this film. I don't have a lot of comic book background, but still, I was able to appreciate the simple storyline of this film: revenge. Revenge is the fueling f... read more

A failed movie franchise

Honestly, I’m not really familiar with the comic-books concerning this character but he sure seems pretty badass. But like many minor comic-book character (yes, I think he is not really famous compared to the likes of Superman, Batman, Spider-man or the X-men), he never managed to reach much success in the film world. For the 2nd time around, they tried to start a franchise around The Punisher,... read more

FBI agent Frank Castle had it all: a loving family, a great life, and an adventurous job. But when all he held dear is taken away by a ruthless crime lord, Castle returns from the dead as "The Punisher," serving as judge, jury and executioner.

The Punisher

“You can almost see the film that Jonathan Hensleigh was trying to make if you squint and turn your face at just the right angle during any scene of The Punisher. It’s one built upon the rough, gritty cinema of Don Siegel, John Frankenheimer, and Sam Peckinpah, but without their eye for composition or making the most of a thin budget. Hensleigh just populates his film with rote characterizations, laughable sequences, and a particularly awful performance from John Travolta during a decade where his performances were near uniformly atrocious.   The basics of the Punisher’s modus operandi are known, mainly thanks to an appearance in the Netflix suite of shows before getting his own spinoff, but for the uninitiated I shall recap: Frank Castle (Thomas Jane, glowering and mistaking dark ha” read more

"Brutal and violent thriller based on a Marvel character with Thomas Jane as Frank Castle, a man who loses everything to gangster John Travolta, when Castle's whole family is massacred. Seeking revenge, Castle creates an alter ego, a ruthless avenging angel called The Punisher. The violence is full on, as Jane manages to moodily portray a grieving man with revenge on his mind. Travolta hams it up but the film will be remembered for the brutal use of a paper guillotine. "

" I saw this when it opened on April 16th, 2004 at the old Wheelersburg Cinema (I say old because back then it was under different management, and it was much more packed than it usually is today). I remember being extremely excited for this, mainly because I was at an age (10) where any Marvel movie stirred up a feverish amount of anticipation. I think I actually liked it when I first saw it, but may reaction has soured in recent years (being totally honest, it's probably been seven or eight yea"
