After creating a soundtrack for the film with a composer, Lexi Alexander was upset by Lionsgates decision to not only fire her composer, but to make a significantly darker orchestral soundtrack to the film. It was cited that the studios decision for this was to make the film appear more like The Dark Knight which was released the same year. See more »

Not much of a plot at all...nothing but mindless violence, blood, guts, and splattered heads!
OK, folks...here's the deal with this movie...if you go to the video store and you're looking for something deep and meaningful, Punisher: War Zone is going to seriously disappoint you. If, however, you are in the mood for just senseless violence, blood, guts, exploding heads, and a lot of cool ways to watch people die, like in Friday the 13th, then I can PROMISE you Punisher: War Zone will NOT disappoint! Go into it and take it for what it is and what I've told you it is. You're not going to come out of this movie with some new profound sense of the universe or some profound understanding--again, if that's what you want, stay far, far away from this movie. But if you wanna see a lot of people get killed and dismembered in a lot of different, gruesome bloody fashions, then this movie is right up your alley! A dude I know told me this, I went into this movie knowing this, and was NOT disappointed in any way, shape or form--it's what I wanted and it's what this movie delivered, and that's why I'm giving this movie a perfect 10 stars!
