Plot

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.
 

Comments

Revenge never tasted so sweet, Swift "Punish" ment - Jane scores big time THE PUNISHER (2004) ***1/2 Thomas Jane, John Travolta, Will Patton, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, Ben Foster, John Pinette, Laura Harring, Samantha Mathis, Roy Scheider, Kevin Nash. Dark, brutal and violent adaptation of the cult Marvel comics anti-hero rises above the genre with a pitch perfect Eastwoodian turn by Jane as recently retired federal agent Frank Castle whose world is turned upside down when his entire family is slaughtered by evil businessman Howard Saint (Travolta, practically licking his lips with vulpine ferocity) for the death of his own son.Left for dead Castle assumes the persona of The Punisher as a vigilante who will stop at nothing to avenge the memories of his beloved. Fantastic action sequences with pulpy undertones (including one priceless bout with Jane and Russian giant Nash that equals classic Bond bouts) and some welcome comic relief in the form of de facto family of misfits Stamos, Foster and Pinette in the dilapidated rooming house Jane sets up his arsenal of death. Veteran genre screenwriter Jonathan Hensleigh makes a fine directorial debut with kinetic skills and sharply observed nuances to the comic book stylings of the genre. Kudos also to cinematographer Conrad W. Hall's bruised palette of stark neo-realism with a touch of sinister sleek glitz.
