The avenging angel of Marvel Comics fame comes brilliantly to life in this searing action-adventure thriller! Dolph Lundgren stars as Frank Castle, a veteran cop who loses his entire family to a mafia car bomb. Only his ex-partner (Louis Gossett Jr.) believes Castle survived the blast to become 'The Punisher'... a shadowy, invincible fighter against evil who lives for total revenge on his mob enemies. Lashing out from a labyrinth of subterranean sewers, 'The Punisher' leads a heavily armed, raid into a world of brutal crime and savage retribution. A world where only one thing is certain... the guilty will be punished.
Dark, dingy & psychedelic

Dolph in his grouchily charismatic prime. His lazy, lumbering karate combined with the dark & dingy but colourful underground locations makes for a psychedelic experience; perfect to chill with a big glass of red wine & disconnect from the world for an evening. It's a predictable humourless revenge flick with hate-able baddies & macho dialogue. Don't think too much about how he lives in a diseased sewer, or where he gets his petrol, bullets, food, designer haircut & muscles. Just give your brain a rest & enjoy.
