This was an early Now Playing review, shorter and spoiler-free. It was not intended to be part of ourĀ Punisher Retrospective Series.

This week the Now Playing hosts review The Punisher: War Zone. This is the third attempt to bring the four-color vigilante to the silver screen, and this time he’s up against his comic book enemy — Jigsaw. We look at the movie from both a male and female perspective, and compare it to the 2004 film (sorry Dolph, still no love for you). Is the third time a charm for the skull chested one, or will watching the movie be the ultimate punishment?

Waging his one-man war on the world of organized crime, ruthless vigilante-hero Frank Castle sets his sights on overeager mob boss Billy Russoti. After Russoti is left horribly disfigured by Castle, he sets out for vengeance under his new alias: Jigsaw. With the "Punisher Task Force" hot on his trail and the FBI unable to take Jigsaw in, Frank must stand up to the formidable army that Jigsaw has recruited before more of his evil deeds go unpunished.
