A stylish and action-packed adaptation of the landmark Marvel comic. Undercover FBI agent Frank Castle (Thomas Jane) is emotionally devastated when his wife and children are killed after witnessing a mafia hit. Vowing vengeance, Castle becomes "The Punisher," a one-man judge, jury, and executioner who declares open season on the criminal underworld in this taut and heart-pounding thriller in the DARK KNIGHT tradition, co-starring John Travolta, Samantha Mathis, and Rebecca Romjin.

Rotten: Mismanages its greatest asset: an unusual embarrassment of camp riches. – Benjamin Strong, Village Voice, Apr 22, 2004

Rotten: There isn't a moment in The Punisher that isn't borrowed or stolen from another movie. – Rex Reed, New York Observer, Jun 24, 2010

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..."
