The Punisher Reviews

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Carefully tended facial stubble trimmed to give him a skull-like appearance, Lundgren is truly impressive as a character defined by emotional emptiness.

Destructive, reprehensible, and marvellous fun.

Much better than the 2004 version. A surprisingly potent blast of '80s action moviemaking.

Often underrated comic-book adaptation that lacks the trademark skull logo but delivers the superhero presence that the Thomas Jane remake sadly lacks.

With origins in a Marvel Comics character, The Punisher is, as might be expected, two-dimensional.

A terrible one-man-army action flick. The 2004 version is far more effective.

É difícil escolher o que é pior: os diálogos risíveis, a direção amadora, as lutas nada convincentes, a péssima atuação (oh!) de Lundgren ou sua "maquiagem de deprimido".

Marred by cheeseball sets and special effects, lame fight sequences, and some of the worst acting ever to disgrace the screen.

Greg's Previews at Yahoo! Movies

The only positive spin I can put on this movie is that if bad comic adaptations like it hadn't been done in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Marvel never would have needed to have its current, high-quality big-screen resurgence.

The real problem is that it just isn't very exciting.
