I have no idea what you did here (*koff* art notes *koff*), but it's quite good. Nice lighting and a cool font.

Nice layout here. I like the blue wash, but overall I feel like there just isn't colour variation to grab a person's eye. It feels a little flat, with nothing jumping out. The film's star and main character should be what pops out at me, but it seems to be the opposite. The heliopters are bright and interesting, while Tom Jane is blandly lit and the blue he's encased in feels muddy. Some stark rim lighting around his face and coat (as if it's reacting to the helicopters, despite the kind of collage layout) might look cool and really draw Jane out. I also think it wasn't the best decision to crop Jane's left hand, as it leaves me with an...inconclusive feeling. We've got this awesome pose here, with him pointing the gun out towards the camera, but we can't see it..!
I'm not big on the font you've chosen for the logo, though. Those heavily distressed, thick fonts are just kind of "out." Played out, even. They're often used to immediately make an image look "gritty" and "badass" but I don't think it has that effect. The fonts just seem tailor-made and consistent. I love the tight kerning you used on the text, but I think a simple, thin font might have worked much better. I loved the Punisher's actual movie logo. It was clean, simple and actually made the posters look grittier in contrast. When it comes to type, I suggest keeping it clean and keeping it simple.
I still really like this poster though. I always look forward to your stuff. Solid all the way.

Nicely done and the layout is nice. But Essex and B pointed out the biggest flaws with this one. I definitely think seeing the rest of the gun would have helped this out and at the same time helped balance the poster a bit. You could have then moved him a bit to the left and had the guys under his arm to balance out the piece a bit more.
