Excerpt: Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, has been on a killing spree ever since his family got murdered. Six years after he started his vigilante war against crime he raids a party to celebrate the return of mob boss Gaitano Cesare, creating a bloody massacre only upcoming crime lord Billy Russoti manages to escape from. Castle follows Russoti to his hideout where he gruesomely disfigures the mobster and kills a gangster who afterwards appears to have been an undercover cop.
Excerpt: This is Hollywood’s third stab at making a movie out of the Punisher, an ultra-violent comic book character known mostly for his love of guns and a tendency to kill criminals rather than bothering with expensive things like fair trials. Each attempt at bringing him to the screen has been slightly better than the last, but only slightly.
