Cult Classic in the Making, 5 December 2008
Author: thekeeperscages from United States

Ray Stevenson did an amazing job portraying exactly how the Punisher should have felt. You were able to get a real glimpse into why he does the things he does. No remorse for the wicked and evil.

This film was action packed and had a different feel for the storyline. Dominic West did an outstanding job as the Jigsaw and there was always a feeling that he was going to get his. A nice surprise was Doug Hutchinson who did a good job as the physcotic brother. The film flowed very nicely and had made sense which is very important in a film that is this fast paced. There was never a moment where there was to many screen cuts or to much camera motion. It flowed very smoothly.

The Music alone is worth seeing this film.
