Punisher: War Zone proudly wears its ambitions on its sleeve, and delivers exactly what its title promises.

The only movie to get the moral and ethical complexity of The Punisher and his warped moral code is Punisher: War Zone, and it's a wild ride that is unmatched in the world of comic book movies

...stands as the best offering out of Hollywood that Punisher fans could've hoped for.

Part '80s action movie, part gross-out horror, this guilty pleasure is Saw meets Rambo . . .

God I love my revenge films...

Earning an 18 certificate with its violence, the film is kids' stuff in all other respects: over-the-top shootouts, monstrous and barking-mad villains, a bumbling sidekick and so on. Highly enjoyable tosh.

It's a good old-fashioned guns-andaction romp - and I love it.
February 6, 2009
As its absurdly macho title hints, this action film is on a mission: not to delight or beguile so much as to club you over the head.

Pleasantly surprising - providing you're not put off by all the gore and dismemberment.

As entertaining as Punisher: War Zone is, there's no real depth, the plot is obvious and it's a wee bit charmless.
February 5, 2009
This is as true to a Marvel comic tale as I've ever seen - gory, serious, intense, dark and utterly psychotic.

If you can stomach the gore and pick up on the underlying humor, you'll likely have a good time.

The guiltiest of guilty pleasures.

It's not a great film. It's not even a particularly good film. It is, however, a film that almost entirely succeeds at a tremendously modest aim.

If you're on the wavelength that can laugh with this stuff instead of laugh at it, Punisher: War Zone is about as fun as commercial cinema gets this season.
December 8, 2008
Violent vigilante comic book story is gory, grim stuff.
December 7, 2008
This movie is exactly what a Punisher film should be and that's both good and bad. It's over the top blood and gore, relentless, humorless and hopeless. I didn't go in expecting Shakespeare in the park.
December 5, 2008
Whether you enjoy Punisher: War Zone or not will depend completely on what you're looking to get out of it.

I wouldn't say that one decapitation... or a dozen... or a string of pervasive, grisly, bloody violence saved this film. But... we were getting an unrelenting action film.
