    But still like I said, it's not bad idea. In the movie they say Frank that was in the Delta Force in the Gulf War. The flashbacks worked good for the game, it can work good for the movie.

    It sucks that a modern Punisher has to be a Gulf War vet instead of a Nam vet. I understand the timeline restraints, but the war in Vietnam was such a part of Franks psyche in the comics. And the Gulf War, while Im sure had its nasty fights, isnt the same blurry hell the was the Vietnam war, that built and scarred Frank at the same time.

    I know making the movie Punisher a Nam vet would make him way too old....still, it kinda sucks that the Nam is gone from the character.
     
  3. While the movie is still an excellent piece of work, I still believe that if it was done during the early to late seventies, Robert De Niro would've been perfect for Frank Castle in my opinion.

    Just watch Taxi Driver. He even looks like Frank if you look closely.

    Not that this film needs a restart or anything, but if a Punisher movie was to include his time in Nam, who would you cast for an older Punisher?

    Yeah........I'm sure you understand the timeline restraints....And I thought we were talking about what we thought and what we think now as Tom as the Punisher. It seems that people would have rather seen someone else do it.

    It will be interesting to see what the team of Thomas Jane, Steve Niles, Lewis LaRosa and Tim Bradstreet do with their new comic called Bad Planet.

    Thomas Jane was perfect as the Punisher, at least his English was understandable unlike Dolph Lundgren's.

    My initial reaction to Tom being cast was a typical fanboy one: "Meh, I guess he's ok, but they need to dye his hair, blahblahblah". Heard nothing for awhile, then somebody showed me the pic in USA Today, the one where he's leaning on that yellow wall in the club, holding the rifle. Black hair? Check. Skull? Check.

    SOLD! Then of course, I heard the stories about how much he dug the character, how he worked his ass off getting into shape and training...by the time I saw the first trailer, I knew we were gonna see Frank Castle on the big screen.

    To sum up, Tom Jane is the man. And a class act.:up:

    This was my favorite part:

    Yeah, he got into Franks' head quite well, I'd say.

    That was a really cool read. Thanks for the linkage, SWAT, I hadn't seen it before.:up:

    Thomas Jane owned the role of The Punisher. He was a great actor to be choosen to play the part.

    Exactly.

    Makes us forget about the Dolph Lundgren Punisher movie.

    Yes it is.

    I planned on watching Ludgren's Punisher movie... but stopped watching it five minutes into the movie.

    Lundgrens version is bad, but not the worse. It actually is a decent 80's action flick if you don't think of it as the Punisher. It has some good scenes too. One of my favorites is the typical coming through the skylight and unloading the M-60 with the M203 grenade launcher into the Yakuza casino. Also when him and Gianni are going nuts on the Yakuza "samurai" rushing them when they get out of the elevator.

    It had a decent amount of violence, but the pace, the dialouge, the other charcters, the plot (though it was a bit ok) and Lundgrens himself didn't really make me think of the Punisher but just an ordinary 80's film.
