The Punisher (2004)

The worst of the three Punisher movies. The movie manages to completely miss what makes the Punisher who he is and transforms the murder of his family from collateral damage to a targeted hit. The movie amounts to nothing more than just another revenge flick. And not even in that regard is it very good. The family of the Punisher gets killed and he enacts his revenge without ever getting into trouble. There’s no tension, no moment when you think he could get stopped by the mobsters.

Also, the movie is too gimmicky. I mean, his family has been killed and all Frank Castle can think off is killing the mob boss with an explosion that forms a skull when seen from the sky. What did he want, getting an A+ for style?
