When the Punisher is arrested, a newsreader says that he has been charged with 125 murders, even though that was the amount of murders he had committed before the movie takes place, and he had killed a lot more people since then.

(at around 47 mins) When detectives Berkowitz and Leary go down into the sewers to search for The Punisher's lair, Berkowitz explains how he met Frank Castle. As they round a corner a film crew member's leg is visible in the corner of the shot, and they quickly move their leg out of the frame.

(at around 1h 10 mins) After the Japanese henchmen are shot at through the paper screen, the very last extra to be shot dies unconvincingly. He slowly drops to his knees, leans forward, and carefully places his weapon down.
