You will be punished mentally if you subject yourself to this god-awful movie!

this was a decent movie, felt like a tv movie, cause it had so many fade-to-black scenes & you may be expecting a commerical or something.

It was good 4 what it was. 1 of Dolph's better movies.

I wish people would just stop wittering on about that damn skull. I didn't miss it. The Punisher is big brutal fun, and so's Dolph Lundgren in the role of Frank Castle. If the movie doesn't resemble the comic, too bad for the comic.

This is the best movie from Dolph Lundgren.;-)

I like on how he perfectly fires two handguns in quick succesion, despite the fact that the knockback is huge and should break his wrists.

This movie is in no way a proper Punisher movie.  He isn’t wearing the Punishcostume, and the tone of the movie was all wrong.

However, this is a wonderful action movie in and of itself.  As long as you don’t try to force yourself to believe that you’re watching a Punisher movie, you should have a great time.

Lundgren looks great, even in the wrong costume.  The yakuza coming in to fill the void left by the Punisher killing all the mafia was a brilliantly clever idea--who would have thought?  And yet it makes total sense.  I liked the Shakespearean homeless guy, at least the first time I saw the movie--he started to get on my nerves in subsequent viewings, but that’s not really a fair test.

Jeroen Krabbe was good as the one remaining mafia don.

Best dialogue in the whole movie:

Mafia guy #1:  I gotta pee.
Mafia guy #2:  So PEEEE!

Sadly, the guy peeing is the first to die, falling into the ocean with a dagger in his chest and his penis in his hand.  I hope he at least finished peeing before he died.

I also love Lady Tanaka’s snooty accent when the blond mafia guy says “The champagne!” and she says “The glasses.”  She pronounces it “glawsses.”  Delightful!

Two other things:

1.  I do not like the new Punisher comics by Ennis/Dillon.  The truest Punisher comics IMO were the first six issues of Punisher War Zone by Dixon/Romita Jr., along with a select handful of assorted individual issues of the main title over the years.  Ron Wagner is the best Punishartist next to John Romita Jr.

2.  I have no interest in seeing the new Punisher movie.  For one thing, they *still* do not have the costume right--just an old faded T-shirt with the skull on it.  Hollywood really needs to get over its pathological fear of using the correct costumes as they appear in the comics, or else stop making comic-based movies once and for all.

One other Dolph Lundgren movie I really enjoy:  “I” Come in Peace.

I remember seeing this film on Channel 5 years ago and I enjoyed it, Dolph did a good job portraing Frank Castle and this film did have a lot of action in it unlike the 2005 Punisher film that only had a few action scenes.

If you wan't to buy itin the UK you can't. it seems it was taken off the market ages ago so the only chance of getting is to get it imported or see if E-BAY has it in stock.

This film might not be too close to the Marvel Comic but hate it because of that, this is a good action film.

It's surprising that a great action flick can come from such a gay comic. But hey The Punisher (With Dolph) is great.

I'm a big Punisher fan. And even I have to admit. It was gay.

This old combat shlock movie, kicks the latest Punisher movie to the curb. I love the idea of Frank living in the sewer, looking as filthy as ever. Frank waiting for God's judgement was a nice touch. Sylvester Stallone you guys can't be serious. The Punisher is at least six foot tall.

I believe the The Mute Blonde Female Ninja was actually French. That would make her the The Mute Blonde French Female Ninja (TMBFFN), thus pretty much covering all the bases...
