    Assuming you can appreciate the high level of gore and assorted sadistic weirdness, the action is satisfying. show more

    The dialogue is beyond clichéd, and performances feel cobbled together from other movies. show more

    The acting is better than the script deserves and Lexi Alexander's cut-to-the-hearse direction lends the film considerable kick. show more

    This movie was crap. It was badly directed and acted. No wonder it lasted barely a week at theaters, Lionsgate is a joke, Lexi Alexander is a joke.

    This movie rocked. This is how the first Punisher should've been. It just sucks they decided to release it so close to Christmas. Another blow to the box office take for the Punisher was the bad taste everyone had for the first Punisher movie. People assumed this was going to be like the first one (their loss). Thanks for the great fun Lexi.

    This Punisher movie was a hell of alot better than that Thomas Jane piece of crap! Ray Stevenson has the Punisher nailed to a tee! The action, the characters and the story were all vastly superior to the other punisher movie! It was almost exactly like the Punisher Max graghic novels! Kudos!!
