Not nearly as bad as the IMDB rating leads you to believe
In fact, I have a suspicion that I will still like this one better even after the release of the new Punisher (2004).
That’s because of a couple of reasons. Firstly, the acting. Dolph Lundgren acts very well in this film, portraying a grim, depressed, out of the ordinary action hero whose sole reason for living is revenge. Louis Gossett, jr. also does his best as Lundgren’s former best friend. Jeroen Krabbe, in my opinion, is miscast as the big crime boss although he does his best.
Secondly, the action sequences are simply good. Lots of guns blazing, some decent camera angles and of course the whole ‘red light’ sequence near the end of the film, which I liked. The whole atmosphere of this movie is grim, gritty, depressed. Something I think the remake this year will not accomplish.
The guilty will be Punished!
May contain spoilers
One of the better comic book turned movie adaptions I’ve seen.
Policeman Frank Castle loses his family in a car bombing, so he quits the force, and becomes a one man vigilante.
So since the mob killed his family, Castle retaliates and wipes out 125 (and counting) mobsters in 5 years. The media receives word of the fallen mobsters and blame it on a mysterious figure deemed “The Punisher”.
All the big shots in town believe that Castle is dead, but his ex partner Jake (Lou Gossett. Jr) believes that it is indeed Castle who is the Punisher.
