Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Gets us lost early in the first half-hour and never succeeds in completely luring us in.
Rotten: Mismanages its greatest asset: an unusual embarrassment of camp riches.
Rotten: There isn't a moment in The Punisher that isn't borrowed or stolen from another movie.
Rotten: For those who can stomach two hours of brain-dead brutality, the film has more laughs than most comedies.
Finally On iTunes !!!
The Punisher walks through the world we all know, a world darkened by war, crime, cruelty and injustice. He has no superpowers to battle the evil he sees - only his fierce intelligence, his years of combat experience and, above all, his iron determination to avenge those wronged by society's villains. New York Times (04/16/2004) "Jonathan Hensleigh's movie version of the Punisher's origins stays true to its hero by being similarly stripped-down, efficient and mean." Los Angeles Times (04/16/2004) "THE PUNISHER is that rare comic book movie that actually feels like a comic book....These battles are a cost-effective throwback. They depend on the physical side of moviemaking...and top of the line stunt work..." USA Today (04/16/2004) "[Z]ippy and amusingly cast....A film whose primary plus is a sense of humor." Entertainment Weekly (05/01/2004) "[K]ick back, and wistfully remember a time when someone named Dolph could be a movie star." Chicago Sun-Times (04/16/2004) "[T]he film, directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, is consistently well-acted, and has some scenes of real power." Uncut (10/01/2004) "[The] gloriously violent action sequences have a refreshingly downbeat `70s exploitation edge. Nasty, brain-dead fun." Sight and Sound (11/01/2004) "[The director] takes a retro-action route with tributes to pre-CGI stuntwork. Most impressive is a frantic car-chase..."
