A documentary crew from France comes to America to capture the daily life of journalist Eddie Brock. Soon the truth about Eddie, as well as his questionable methods, begin to reveal more than intended.
Frank Castle, a.k.a. 'The Punisher', wakes up in a run-down neighborhood and leaves his van to do his laundry. On his way to the laundromat, he witnesses a gang led by Goldtooth assaulting a group of prostitutes, but minds his own business. But when the gang mugs a boy named DeShawn, Frank goes to a convenience store to buy a bottle of Jack Daniel's and use it to club the thugs to death before crippling Goldtooth and pouring the whiskey on him for one of the prostitutes to set the gang leader on fire. Frank then collects his laundry and has DeShawn keep one of his signature t-shirts before leaving the neighborhood.Written by
In an interview with Inverse, Adi Shankar revealed that he was previously in pre-production on a sequel to Dirty Laundry, stating that the film was "going to be a two-hander that introduced the 'Lady Punisher', who was going to be played by MMA fighter and Deadpool (2016) actor Gina Carano. Thomas Jane was due to reprise his role in the sequel, and the script was written by Wayne Kramer. Shankar stated in the interview (regarding the film) that: "it may still be revisited and revived at some point down the road, and that it shouldn't be ruled out just yet." See more »

We got a special on Bourbon.

I meant vodka.
I'm six months sober.
[Frank turns around to see the mugging continue as he grabs the Yoo-hoo and drinks it at the front door while watching]
Fuckin' animals. Makes you want to do somethin', don't it?

Couple of years back, that was me ...

I'm watching this fresh off a(nother) disappointing viewing of 2004's "The Punisher", so there's really nowhere to go but up, right? Especially when it's only a 10-minute running time. Either way, "The Punisher: Dirty Laundry", lean, mean and minimalist, finally lets Frank Castle get down to the business of kicking some ass. All of the necessary brooding and none of the lame villains, no milquetoast sadism - hell, the real fun here is watching Thomas Jane take a whiskey bottle to the heads of a street gang (with the requisite blood sprays). It's quick, to the point, and violently satisfying.
It's a sad state of affairs when Hollywood can't do (in three movies!) what a YouTube video can.
