Sons of Anarchy (2008) creator Kurt Sutter wrote an R-rated draft that, according to him, took "the Punisher character out of the comic books" and put him into a real-world drama set in the streets of New York. At the very last minute, however, the studio decided to revert to Nick Santora's comic-book-style script with the intention of creating a sequel from that. Disgusted with the actions by the studio, Sutter refused a story credit and demanded that his name be omitted from the final credits. See more »
This movie is a reboot and not a sequel to The Punisher, so any differences between the two movies are not necessarily continuity errors. See more »
I am a Huge Punisher fan. This movie destroys the other two in my opinion. I was expecting a piece of crap from the reviews I read and boy were they wrong. This movie is a non stop kill fest. It shows everything from heads exploding to decapitations. As a horror fan I love that. As a Punisher fan that's the way it should be. I wanna see the scum of the world get their heads blown off, not cut off at the last second like most movies do. Ray's portrayal of the punisher is perfect. In the first scene of the movie when he's wiping out the dinner guests and he breaks the neck of the mobsters wife I knew I was in for a treat. Loooooooooooved IT.
