The Punisher: War Zone

    One-upping their recent heap of reimagined character films, “Punisher: War Zone” is Marvel’s brand new take on comic-book antihero Frank Castle — better known as the Punisher. The film follows Castle on his one-man crusade against organized crime, introducing us to notorious villain Jigsaw, less intent than Marvel’s previous endeavors on applying realistic standards to the character’s universe and more willing to create a faithful adaptation of comic lore. Wherein the film’s predecessor was essentially a character piece focusing on Castle’s tormented psyche, this interpretation aims to center solely on the Punisher’s most distinguishing quality: his ruthless and brutal vigilantism. With a fiercer Ray Stevenson taking new lead, “War Zone” looks to both flaunt the character’s well-known sadism and mimic the comic narrator’s notorious maturity. In any case, the franchise’s latest outing will be a deliciously gory holiday joyride. In theaters Dec. 25.
