This is so epic… good choice of actors too:

Thug: U like breathing?
Punisher: Usually

Thoughts?

Hell yeah; I sure hope this is a hint at a new film – or something that will inspire a (proper) sequel.

Yes! Glad you posted this one. I saw it yesterday… love it. TJ is back! We can only hope this little fan film turns into something bigger. TJ was the best Punisher.

Only gripes are…

1) Bad cgi gore… but I can let that slide due to the budget or lack thereof.

2) Frank Castle seriously just walks around unarmed? Considering he’s already become The Punisher and is constantly being hunted by the Police and other crime organizations? Was he having a mid-life crisis and taking a break? I don’t buy it. The Punisher is ALWAYS armed even if it’s just a sidearm or a knife. I was predicting he’d pull a SBR from his laundry and was disappointed.

It would be an awfully short short if he just y’know, shot the fuck out of them, lol.

Nahhhhhhhh… that’s basically what The Punisher does… only with a bit more scheming and tactics beforehand. Hell, I’d have been happy if they just showed that he HAD a gun and still decided to use a bottle o’ Jack. :D

It seemed to me that he was doing his best to be ‘retired’, which is about the only thing that would explain his lack of holdout pistol at least. But he couldn’t stand by and flipped out like a ninja instead. Of course that doesn’t explain why he’d still be wearing and washing his skull shirt, but they had to get the symbol in there somehow – not to mention justify the whole laundry angle.

I never liked Jane as Punisher. He just doesn’t seem like Frank Castle at all to me. Doesn’t even look like him at all.

That was pretty awesome. The goryness was a little more than reality, but I liked the Spyderco Endura (Spyderco fan…).

That was Ron Pearlman as the cashier wasn’t it?

If this was a trailer I would run out to buy tickets tonight!

No, that was Ron Perlman. Ron Pearlman is a tax professor at Georgetown Law. ;)

I’m very impressed they got TJ and Ron Pearlman to act in this. I too hope it’s another kickstarter for the Punisher series. Considering how well Punisher War Zone (comic version) went over I don’t blame Marvel for jumping on it but the actor was a little too different from TJ. I’d like to see TJ in the next one (if there is one).

As for this short film, I liked it. Great acting, angles and story line.

Punisher does his own laundry? The dirt isn’t scared into submission?

Would have been much better with Ray Stevenson and Wayne Knight. The dynamic duo from Warzone.

I saw this a couple of days ago, and I imagine it was more enjoyable not knowing for sure that it’s a punisher short movie. Makes the ending sweeter.

Jack Daniels needs to use this as a viral ad. Edit some of the rape and shit out and just have the Punisher doing work with the bottle is about as American as it gets.

Also I got this from youtube:
“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

Even the East German judge is giving this a 10.

That was pretty fucking awesome.

Although it should be contrasted with the real life punisher, the old man in Florida with the long white socks shooting the crap out of some holdup artists.

Do you mean the thieves that had an alleged rusted out, empty pistol and a baseball bat? That video was hilarious. The way they tripped over each other made my day. Just wish it had audio so we could hear their effeminate screams.
