There was a scene filmed, but cut from the movie, showing Frank Castle, when he was still a cop, busting mobster Dino Morretti (the mobster he kills at the beginning). However, there are still allusions to the bust in the film. When Sam Leary introduces herself to Berkowitz, she mentions that they had worked together on the Morretti bust ("I was the hooker."). And both the DVD and VHS copies of the movie feature a still photo on the jacket of Castle in a blue jean shirt with two guns, Berkowitz, and Leary (in her hooker disguise). See more »

I really liked this film, it´s true to the comic, and in some parts is better. For example in the comic Frank Castel has a truck full of weapons (most of them hi tech weapons) but were he gets the cash to pays for them. It´s a better adaptation than most flicks from those years (captain America for example) and it´s full with a lot of action and blood, its like a predecesor for Kill Bill. I give the movie a 7 out of 10.
