As all of us can obviously see this was fantastic. What I'm hoping is that Jane meant it to be so great that the internet outcry would be so loud they would bring Jane back as the Punisher in some form. If it happens, I'd love it to be a TV series. And they should put Jane in charge as exec producer. There have been too many failed movies for them to try another theatrical. As Chazy suggested, it should be a premium cable show or at the least something for the FX network or AMC. They'll need something to take the place of Breaking Bad when it ends.

Hopefully, the internet cries and alot of hits on its youtube page will wake somebody up.

Marvel/Disney recently bought the rights to Punisher, so I doubt we will see anything like this clip (violence-wise) to see the light of day.

It is sad that a 10 min short is better than any feature length movie made so far.

Thanks Hanso. Can you tell I work in a jail?

Very well done.  Reminds me of how Richard Hatch made his own Battlestar Galactica short all those years ago, trying to revive the series.  Whether it works or not, I have to say that it was damn entertaining.  Like many others, I liked Thomas Jane as The Punisher just fine.  I didn't care for the movie itself all that much, but I had no problem with how he portrayed the character.

I liked it as a quick origin introduction to the character, otherwise, he would have been in action much earlier and he would never walk the streets without packing.  A very awesome short.  I thouroughly enjoyed it.

The Thomas Jane Punisher movie was the first movie in my life I've ever almost walked out of. And I've seen some terrible movies at the cinema, Battlefield Earth, The Musketeer, LXG, 300 Miles to Graceland (ok the last one is actually so bad it's good), but I always stay to the bitter end, if only to be able to bitch authoritatively about the film afterwards. But this one convinced me that I was wasting my life in that cinema. If I hadn't paid money and been past the 30-minute walkout-refund limit, then I would have left. It was SO FREAKIN' BAD that it made the Dolph Lundgren one look good. At least the Dolph version had a moment where Louis Gossett Jr says to Frank Castle "Don't you get it? You're sick! Something is wrong with you!", adding just a microscopic amount of depth to an otherwise boring psychopath who only murders scumbags. Thomas Jane's Punisher had dinner with his dorky flatmates, hardly killed anyone, spent time admiring his dad's handguns as if they were treasured family photos, and had that stupid rockabilly assassin who serenaded him in a f*cking cafe!  It was BAD BAD BAD BAD BAD!!!!!!!  I didn't see the Ray Stevenson version, just couldn't do it. But Thomas Jane isn't to blame, he was stuck in a bad movie. When I can bring myself to see him as a badass again I will watch this....

 I remember reading that it was Thomas Jane who walked away from the franchise.  And if what he walked away from was Warzone, good for him.  

Jane and Stevenson were both great fits for the Punisher; in terrible movies.  Thomas Jane 'got' the Punisher, Stevenson embodied him.  I wager either one of them, with a good script and good director would knock a Punisher movie right out of the park.  

Lungdren on the other hand, even though he has physical precense, walked around like Ivan Drago with black hair.  He has that same blank stare, that makes you think he was either brain dead or stoned.  Which it's okay for the punisher to have the thousand yard stare of merciless killing machine; not the dopey stare of somebody who might have spent too much time in smokey rooms.

As far as Disney owning the rights....Disney owned Miramax in the days of Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill.  Granted the Weinsteins were there calling the shots, but the house of mouse was right there halfway up their sphincters.  This is the company that founded Touchstone, Hollywood Pictures and controlled a bit of Miramax.  Disney isn't afraid of releasing violent, shocking films as long as they aren't under the Disney name...Although, Dogma was too hot for them...Go figure.

 omg, what were you smoking....frog...Jane did a good job as Punisher...it was the better of the 3.

ddiaz28. Frank was doing exactly what he does. He reconoiters, tracks the street thugs to the big players and then kills the bosses. Usually he never hits unless he has a plan, he is just one man and knows that unless he has a tactical advantge his war won't last long.

But as with most things even Frank has a breaking point where enough is enough. The hooker getting hooker getting beat up, well that's part of her job/life. The little kid about to be killed beacuse he is standing up aginst that life? That was too far. Besides, he did help the hooker at the end.
