So, there are 3 Punisher films in existance. 1. 'The Punisher' 1989 starring Dolph Lundgren. 2. 'The Punisher' 2004 starring Tom Jane. 3. 'Punisher: War Zone' 2008 starring Ray Stevenson. So, which one do you favour? Personally, I rate them 3, 1 and a distant 2. Jane's movie is too different from the books, too sappy, too cliche and too goofy in many scenes. Dolph's is also, much more so, amended from the comic book as well, but is a classic of 1980s action - gritty, violent and unapolegetic. Stevenson's is the crowning jewel. Balancing everything perfectly and being dead serious about it.
