“The Punisher” Review
The Punisher (2004) | Amazon
Directed by Jonathan Hensleigh. With Thomas Jane, John Travolta, Samantha Mathis, Laura Harring. An undercover FBI agent becomes a vigilante assassin and sets out to unleash his wrath upon the corrupt businessman who slaughtered his entire family at a reunion.
This is the one with Thomas Jane, which isn’t as bad as I remember it being, still feels weird. I remember living in the Tampa area when they were filming and it made the nightly news several times, the first being for some explosions that were due to go off, and another to let people know that they were going to be throwing completely fake money out of a building and to not be too concerned about either event.
Regardless, this was a sanitized version of The Punisher that wasn’t disrespectful to the original stories they lifted content from, but still felt like it was too clean for what I was expecting.Favorite This!
