Bumpo Will Patton as Quentin Glass A. While Weeks tries to arrest them and gets ambushed, Frank is just responsible for recon and only interacts when his buddies are in danger. This was never actually shot because of the budget. He kills almost all the enemies alone and is able to arrest the assassins. Fans of the film should not be too disappointed with this soundtrack. For the rest, I pretty much already sold the others.
And wow a bad guy who might be into. First of all, they weren't actually animated. We don't even get the film's trailer. They seem to list the runtime of the theatrical cut, but that is a common mistake. But he insists on suicide. The Punisher with Thomas Jane should become a cult classic if it isn't already.
I would recommend this to a friend This is another Blu-ray to come out without much to offer besides the movie. The villains of the film are the scum of the Earth. The overall presentation is much sharper across the board, especially when compared to the 1080p Blu-ray also included in the box. It's Hollywood formula, yes, but Travolta was fun to watch as villain punished for his evil ways, and the supporting cast on Jane's side was great entertainment. The packaging is simple and straightforward. I just wanted to enjoy Thomas Jane, but this actually isn't a bad movie.
It culminates in a tense final confrontation between the two. I don't like when they keep changing the actors. More on what motorheadache95 was saying, Thomas Jane wanted the sequel to be darker and much closer in tone with the comics. A writer probably thinks that more things are important and Hensleigh was seemingly enthusiastic when he was able to put the subplot about the traitor back into the movie and try his hands at a epilogue in Kuwait that was never shot - it's only done with animation and still photographs. I found that I liked the original better.
I found the movie interesting. Like Pulp Fiction, lots of uneasy to watch and often violent scenes but essential to the movie. In truth, he's a heavily armed vigilante who punishes the guilty. You see several confrontations between Castle and Weeks and Frank slowly piecing together that his old army buddy and fellow cop was responsible for selling him out. I have the Ultimate 3-Disc Blu-ray, so I have no use for it.
To put this in perspective, I sat all the way through Hudson Hawk as well. The Punisher character I like. I agree with much of what you're saying, but it's a film that I find fun to watch after making a concerted effort not to over-analyze. The behind the scenes features on the making of the movie, the stunts, Thomas Jane's training and the money problems that hampered the director and hurt the movie are very comprehensive and very good. The worst part is that the score doesn't fit the movie at all. My only complaint is that the Blu-ray isn't remastered, and this release doesn't include the extended cut of the film. On the whole, The Punisher works by maintaining a brisk pace, fairly well developed characters, and plenty of action.
If this is the Punisher: War Zone this is actually the worst movie I ever sat all the way through. A comic book movie is ripe for extras. I would recommend this to a friend Once again, another cool Marvel character brought to life for our viewing pleasure; only The Punisher kicks butt without super powers or power suits. But, yes, I agree that War Zone is terrible. The most recent one was the one I thought was beyond awful.
Thomas Jane is amazing and John Travolta is fantastic, Travolta in my opinion is almost better when he plays the bad guy. This movie is awesome for any comic book buff. It's a message that camaraderie is not just for soldiers, but can be found in unlikely places and outside of the service. While not perfect, I can at least tell that any issues with the image now are inherent to the source material, and not due to the transfer itself. The major wants to execute the prisoners right then and there but Frank tries to prevent that.
