Rated TBC by the BBFC


This action thriller is the second big-screen version of the 1970s Marvel comic strip. Frank Castle (Tom Jane) is a retired FBI agent spurred into action after the merciless revenge killing of his wife, father, and son. Despite a lack of special powers (unlike his fellow Marvel characters), Castle nevertheless adopts the superhero guise of The Punisher, and sets out to avenge his dead family by tracking down the culprits responsible for their demise. All clues point to Howard Saint (John Travolta), a ruthless businessman and nightclub owner whose young son was mistakenly killed by Castle in a botched undercover operation back in his FBI days.
