Holy shit, the Punisher just shot some dude in the face and the dude’s head, like, totally exploded. Then someone gets knifed in the throat, and another dude takes the wrong end of a chair in one eye. Now I don’t know if all of these gore-filled scenes will be making appearances in the “Punisher: War Zone” movie set to bow in theaters all across this glorious nation of ours tomorrow, but if they are, then Lexi Alexander might have done something I didn’t think was possible — make a Punisher movie that DOESN’T suck. Of course, I’m going to reserve judgment for the finished version, but until then, enjoy this Red Band blood-fueled clip from “Punisher: War Zone”.
Infamous vigilante, anti-hero Frank Castle (Ray Stevenson) is six years into his vengeance driven zeal as the Punisher when he brutally assaults a “beat the rap” party for notorious mob boss Gaitano Cesare. During the course of the massacre, he hideously disfigures overeager gangster Billy Russoti (Dominic West) and murders a mafia lackey who turns out to be an undercover FBI agent.
Agent Paul Budiansky (Colin Salmon), the ex-partner of the undercover Fed, joins the NYPD’s “Punisher Task Force” to help bring Castle to justice, once and for all.
A facially mutilated Russoti recovers from his run-in with the Punisher with revenge on his mind and recruits a massive army of psychotic killers, gangbangers, and mobsters under his new alias “Jigsaw.”
Distraught that he has now become the very evil he swore to battle, Castle is content to hang up his guns and quit the justice business for good. However, plans quickly change once he learns that Jigsaw has kidnapped the surviving wife and child of the dead federal agent.
Forced back into the war, the Punisher now has to face off against Jigsaw’s formidable army in order to save the lives of an innocent family his actions put on firing line. “Clock’s ticking.”
Ray Stevenson is the Punisher. Dominic West is his nemesis, Jigsaw. Julie Benz is the damsel in distress. Everyone else? Run for cover this Friday.
