Discussing this film is a little bit like discussing a piece of shit floating in the toilet.

It's a piece of shit!

It is an absolute piece of shit. But the pure humility of the film for poking fun at itself through out the movie and the kindness it had in not being over an hour and a half made me really enjoy it. Plus, Thomas Jane and John Travolta were perfect for their roles. Its an easy film to watch and agree that it sucks but enjoy it as well.


I liked this film, but felt that the neighbor characters got in the way of the overall story, and didn't really seem to serve a purpose. I really enjoyed the opening act of what sets off the revenge, and was really glad to see a "cop" wife who supported her man and what he does, rather than get angry at him for what he does. I liked Jane and Travolta, who can play a great villian, but he wasn't given much to do here.

Man, this movie was bad.  It wasn't even depressing, it was just dull.  The action wasn't all that exciting, and the plot is the basic revenge story we are familiar with.  The only scene that I cared for was the fight with the Russian.  Most of the humor with the neighbors was flat, and this film looked like a paycheck for John Travolta.  I haven't looked at my watch during a movie in a long time, but I looked down about 4 times.


i liked it you fucks.

But then again my DVD collection contains such greats as Ready to Rumble, Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, and of course.....your mom's DUDE!

The Punisher

I remember when an "Extended Director's Cut" actually meant something back in the days of laserdisc. Much like everything else related to the DVD phenomenon, this too has become the de-rigueur marketing tool. Aintitcoolnews reports that Lions Gate is planning to relieve you of your cash with a double-dip re-release of The Punisher. Appearing at the Wizard World comic convention in L.A., artist Tim Bradstreet mentioned that "The Punisher: Director's Cut" DVD is in the works and will add backstory and whatnot, including scenes of Frank Castle during wartime. Bradstreet goes on to say that none of these scenes were originally shot, so the actors will be filmed on a green screen stage with backgrounds added digitally. Presumably this all will take place during the upcoming production of the sequel. The extended DVD most likely will be released with the marketing push for "The Punisher 2."


Jane on Punisher 2
"There's so much new ground to be broken."
Sci Fi Wire caught up with actor Thomas Jane who spilled a few beans about The Punisher 2. Jane is tipped to reprise the title role for the follow-up, which sounds much further along in the development process than previously thought.

"I've been in the gym for seven weeks now," Jane informed Sci Fi Wire. "I've already put on 12 pounds of muscle. They want to start going before the end of the year. Ideally I'd like to see the film come out in the fall of 2006, but I don't have any control over that."

So what type of film would Jane like Punisher 2 to be?

"There's so much new ground to be broken. The potential for The Punisher — especially when it comes to the real juicy stuff — should go more in the direction of a gritty, urban street drama like Taxi Driver rather than a glossy, fantasy direction like the X-Men [films]."

the more i think about it the more i believe thomas jane will become the next dolph lungren....and before you laugh at me and call me a fucking piece of shit pussy..let me explain boogie nights when he played todd reminded me of a dolph lungren character but written with a hotty pta look at the punisher and stander..basically, there just current dolph lungren fluff....i think thomas jane actaully looks like lundgren too.....and didnt dolph play the "original" punisher?....... we need a new cheesy c-movie type star to fill the void that lundgren left and thomas jane should suffice....  

..there are comparisons in both looks and genre....i know that in the last picture that dolph is in front of a mushroom cloud but look closely at this posture and facial expressions....its just like jane is in 'junked'....i could have more proof of this but jane has only began his staring career as lundgren has been at it for a while...just wait and see..


I've been meaning to get my hands on "Stander"
Only plus to The Punisher was Thomas Jane as the Punisher, and I thought the action scene where the Punisher mows down Howard Saint's goons in his nightclub was entertaining. Looking back on the movie, the Punisher could have just invaded the nightclub as soon as he came back into Tampa, and we would have had a good 30 minute movie.


John Dahl in Major Talks for The Punisher 2

Exclusive: It was announced yesterday over at AICN that Thomas Jame will not be returning for Lionsgate's The Punisher 2... today we got more juice for you.

Today Freeze Dried Movies learned exclusively that John Dahl is in major talks to helm the sequel to the 2004 pic, which was one of Artisan's last features before being acquired by Lionsgate. In addition, the script in place now does in fact feature Jigsaw as the killer.

Dahl is best known for Rounders, Joy Ride and upcoming You Kill Me.

In the first film, after his wife and family are killed, G-Man Frank Castle takes it upon himself to distribute punishment to those responsible for the vendetta.
