One of the few good comic book adaptations out there.
I like all there new Marvel comic book adaptations,they are fun,but as far as casting goes the best two were Christopher Reeves as Superman and Dolph Lungdren as the Punisher.
This is a gritty and very violent movie. Tha action is fast and furious and most of the characters are hard to like...a dark movie. Castles, as most of you know, has had his family killed by the Mafia,he goes on a killing rampage as the Punisher...125 dead in 5 years and just does not care...that is the background story.
In this movie the Mafia is so weakened by Castles that the Yakuza have stepped in and are taking over, Mafia children are kidnapped and people are dying by the dozen as castle does his thing...Lost of knifes in bodies and lots of lead poisonings in a short compact action film.
Neat story,a tortured and emotionally close to dead Dolph Lungdren and good supporting cast makes this one of Dolph better efforts and certainly worth digging up if you can find it.
