A man who witnesses the slaughter of his family sets out for revenge.
The impressively muscular chest of Tom Jane is the focal point of The Punisher, a movie based on a Marvel Comics superhero. Frank Castle (Jane, Deep Blue Sea) retires from the FBI, which means--as any moviegoer expects--that his family is toast. Howard Saint (John Travolta, Face/Off), a shady Florida businessman whose son was killed in Castle's last mission, orders a hit not only on Castle's wife and child, but also on his parents and a whole bunch of aunts, uncles, cousins, and so forth. The killers shoot Castle himself in the chest, but he inexplicably survives and--as any moviegoer expects--sets out to even the score. Implausibly, given his sometimes curious and roundabout methods, he succeeds. Also featuring Will Patton (Armageddon) as an oily thug, Laura Harring (Mulholland Drive) as Saint's fleshpot wife, and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos (X-Men) as a waitress with bad taste in men. --Bret Fetzer -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: UMD Mini for PSP.

The film instead begins with the introduction of John Travolta as Howard Saint, opening up his new nightclub and how his youngest son set up the meeting with the Dutch arms dealer (undercover agent Frank Castle). From then on the film continues as normal but with entire scenes adding plots such as how Howard Saint bought out Jimmy Weeks (Frank's FBI partner), Frank trying to find out the truth of who sold him out and the shocking conclusion before the film's final battle.
I recommend this version over the original. Not only does it make better sense, it comes off as more mature, intelligent, stylish and overall faithful to the character with its revised overtones of film noir and western feel. What started out as a short action feature is transformed into a modern comic book Sergio Leone classic!
