Seeing as he had only one involvement with the creation of the original Punisher character; (changing the character from 'The Assassin' to 'The Punisher') this is one of the few movies based on a Marvel Comic in which Stan Lee does not appear. See more »
(at around 1h 45 mins) When the pictures of Quentin Glass are thrown at Howard Saint they can be seen as thrown above him and to his side, but in the next shot, they are all in a pile all facing upwards. See more »

The Marvel logo features comic-book images of the Punisher in its pages; after it fully forms, it is shot three times and "bleeds" white paint which forms the Punisher's skull, and the film's title. See more »

The Punisher put my faith back into revenge movies. The action in this film is unbelievable and grim. I found myself not wanting the story to end. Many of the movies based on superheroes in a comic book tend not to sticks gritty and real. This one was and then some. The movie has surpassed my expectation and I certainly look forward Punisher 2.
The next film sets itself up for a kick butt start. They should take a page from X2 or the Lethal Weapon series and just open the next film with a wild battle. You can grab the viewer right away and still tell your full story right after. I hope the entire cast as well as the director returns because they crafted one quality origin story here. In summary, I enjoyed everything about this dark tale.
