Marvel Comics only granted the film-makers a provisional license on rights for the character of The Punisher. This effectively meant that the production team could only really use the name of the character and not any of his defining traits, including his famous skull T-shirt. See more »

This film may not be the closest adaptation to the Marvel Comic but it does have a lot action and kick a** fighting that makes this a great film. Dolph Lundgren gives a solid performance as Frank Castle/ The Punisher, Barry Otto is great as The Punisher's drunk friend who gives him info about criminal hideouts, Louis Gossett Jr does a great role as the detective that's been searching for five years to get Frank Castle.
The skull may be missing on his shirt but that doesn't bother me since he still kicks a**. The skull symbol is still on his knives and his bike so that's something. Their's a lot of action in this film to get anyone interested, if you're a fan of The Punisher like me or into action movies then The Punisher is one to see. 10/10
The 2004 Punisher movie is another one to look out for.
