Marvel Comics' vigilante character The Punisher gets another big-screen outing in this third film incarnation of the character, this time from Green Street Hooligans director Lexi Alexander. Fueled by revenge and aided by his trusted weapons expert, Microchip (Wayne Knight), vigilante Frank Castle (Rome's Ray Stevenson) turns the New York City streets red with blood as he takes down each and every member of the crime syndicate responsible for the death of his wife and two kids. As the law-appointed "Punisher Task Force" closes in on him, the antihero does battle with Billy Russoti (Dominic West), aka Jigsaw, a nickname given by him to reflect the disfigurement handed to him by Castle. With the help of his psychotic brother, Loony Bin Jim (Doug Hutchison), Jigsaw recruits the criminals of the city to band together to bring down The Punisher, using the wife (played by Dexter's Julie Benz) and daughter of a slayed FBI agent as bait. Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Nick Santora provide the screenplay for the Lionsgate release. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide

Stevenson is The Punisher come to life... by Emosjrny April 29, 2009 - 10:23 AM PDT

Finally, Hollywood movie moguls and corporate executroids got The Punisher right and actor Stevenson is primarilly the reason why. Lundgren as the character isn't even worth mentioning and why Jane performed admirably in an effective action movie, "P2:W" is finally The Punisher as described in the comics (at least as I remember it as a casual comic book fan) being gritty, stylized and ultra-violent. Director Lexi has a story almost as interesting as one of the characters in the movie coming from a martial arts champion to stunt choreographer to movie director. Big props!
