    So apparently Thomas Jane did this punisher short for the fans and this 10 minute short is better than the whole punisher movie, certainly got me excited in another punisher film, i like Tom Jane and i think he was screwed by the studios with that old punisher... based on this does he deserve another chance? I think so :slayer: edit: yes there is "the dark knight" music playing in the background, idk whats up with that

    “I wanted to make a fan film for a character I’ve always loved and believed in – a love letter to Frank Castle & his fans. It was an incredible experience with everyone on the project throwing in their time just for the fun of it. It’s been a blast to be a part of from start to finish — we hope the friends of Frank enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.”

    Thomas Jane is a great guy and that short movie was all kinds of vigilante-awesome!

    THe only let down were the obvious CGI blood effects, but I guess they didn't have a big enough budget to make them more realistic.

    i agree cgi could of been better but either way the punisher was plain ruined by hollywood and i really liked thomas jane in the role, i feel like the movie almost tanked his career

    It's not like he was a rising star after hits like deep blue sea.

    Seriously, that was excellent. EXACTLY what I would want a punisher film to be. I don't know if they could sustain that for 90 minutes, but if they could, then I'd be first in line.

    I enjoyed the video. A bit gratuitous with the CGI blood, but that was done for camp effect, so I can look past it.

    I like Thomas Jane as the punisher. He has a kind of "don't give a fuck" laid back attitude.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    This was done on an extremely low budget. Of course the CGI effects are not going to blow anyone away...

    I enjoyed it and would like to see a future film done in this tone. :)

    I've loved the comics since I was a kid, but maybe its one of those things that just works better as a comic? That short was great and true to the spirit but I wonder if it could really sustain for a full 90.

    In any case, it seems like the perfect subject for a new "DK Style" reboot.
