5.0 out of 5 stars There can be only one Punisher! 23 Oct 2006
By Delicia
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Punisher is big, brutal fun, beginning and ending with Dolph sitting butt nekkid in a sewer talking to God in a deep rumbling voice. In-between the two butt-shots he looks ultra-cool in black leather, rides his motorcycle a lot, kicks a mean punch, scowls and drives his former police buddy Luis Gosset into politically correct paroxysms saying things like:
"Work in progress." in reference to 125 gangsters killed in 5 years because:
"The guilty will be punished!"
That's really good to hear in these psychoanalytical social sciences times.
Forget the later softies flick taking in vain the name of Punisher. This is the one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ahead of its time. 19 Jan 2009
By R HILL
Format:DVD
A forgotten classic that's Dolphs best role after Rocky IV. Plenty of slick gun and martial arts action with a dark moody style and a decent enough cast and story to raise it above all the other 'VHS premier' Dolph action fodder.
If this film had had a proper blockbuster budget they wouldn't have bothered with the tame 2004 remake but for what it is this film is a forgotten gem and although ole Dolph acting is always a bit wooden this role really suits him and he follows it through with a real presence.
Its a shame it wasn't made today along with all the other comic book remakes but if a little dated it still holds its own especially with the great action scenes and is well worth a watch if you haven't already seen it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The definition of a `comic book movie' 17 Jun 2013
Format:DVD
The Punisher is based on the - particularly violent - Marvel comic book of the same name from the seventies, where a former FBI agent has his family murdered and goes out for revenge his own way.

Whereas today, Marvel movies are given huge budgets ala The Avengers, Thor and Iron Man, this one was handed out to a little-known Australian company to make. The results being that The Avengers, Thor and Iron man it is not.

Every character is pretty stereotypical and one-dimensional. The dialogue is a bit forced. The budget is slim and the story hardly inspired. All in all, it has all the hallmarks of a disaster in the making. Yet it's actually pretty cool... if you know what you're getting.

It's a blatant B-movie. It's like actually watching a live action comic book. You wouldn't expect Oscar-worthy dialogue and acting from a comic book, would you? Hopefully not. So don't expect it here. It's a movie designed to munch popcorn to. It has plenty of explosions, killing of badguys and cheeky one-liners from our strong and silent hero, The Punisher.

They ever remade it (twice), but, despite having bigger budgets, better acting and more bankable stars, neither seemed to quite capture the raw comicbook style which the 1989 version managed.

If you're a fan of cheesy eighties action (think Commando, Rambo and almost any Jean Claude Van Damme film) then give this one a go. It's short and to the point, but mainly great mindless fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars dolph at his best 22 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the punisher is a brilliant action film and was tailor made for dolph.he isnt the best actor ive seen but i can watch his films all the time.the film itself is based on the marvel comics and boaz yakin screenplay is top notch.the film has a great cast of louis gossett jr and jerome krabbe and it is very violent.the original uk vhs release was heavily cut but the new anchor bay version seems to be the same as the region 1 theatrical version.there is a german region 2 version available with english audio which is uncut and is not the theatrical cut and has all scenes that are either missing or trimmed but it looks like they were inserted from the original print and there is a slight drop in picture quality but not enough to put you off.the choice is yours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dolph is the man 15 Jun 2012
By Mr. S. Storey TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is great; the action is relentless, resulting in a massive body count. Dolph excels as the vigilante sewer dweller. I particularly like the fire fight at the dockside when he spear guns a guy to the side of the van then uses the rope as a zip slide. The dialogue is pretty awful and the plot is standard fare but I don't give a monkeys because the action is virtually non stop and really well put together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for Dolph... 22 May 2006
Format:DVD
An above average Dolph movie, which, if you know nothing of the comic book (and I didn't until i saw the 2004 remake, which is, in places, a rather sanitised version) will keep you entertained as long as you aren't expecting an acting masterclass.

But my best advice to you is to read the review of the person just several places below me here. You'll know it instantly - the one with the numbered list of "mistakes" the makers of this film made. Hilarious. Atrocious spelling apart, I now have a good idea of what movie magazines refer to when they mention the "fanboys" who feel the need to pick holes in every aspect of the movie adaptions of comic books. Some people really have no grip on reality...

Sorry if you were expecting more of a dissection of the movie itself - but it's Dolph Lundgren, so it does what it says on the box. Remember, it's just an escapist action movie - not a monument to the ages. Worth a rental fee, but i would suggest spending your hard-earned money on a couple of decent books.
