Punisher: War Zone is kind of an underrated action flick, and now it’s coming back around, this time in glorious 4K Ultra HD.
Heavy on the punishment
Starring Ray Stevenson, Punisher: War Zone was something of an odd duck of a movie. I actually don’t mean that in a bad way either, it’s just that it didn’t seem to land the way it should have when it arrived, and doesn’t seem to get mentioned too many places when talking about the character.
But again, that’s not to say it’s a bad flick, because it really isn’t. The Punisher himself is played pretty well by Stevenson, who has a ton of blood and guts scenes. And the action in War Zone gets significantly higher octane than in the previous flick, or the Netflix series. Then there’s also the fact that it’s actually called “War Zone”. Given the history, that’s just cool.
In any event, Frank and the gang are coming back to home video, so you’ll get another shot at a viewing. This time too, they’ll be featured in 4K Ultra HD (among other formats), and will be all wrapped up in a wicked looking package.
The new offering will arrive with the 4K edition, and also include both Blu Ray and a digital. The set arrives in steelbook presentation on October 18th, 2022 for $27.99 USD, and you can grab a pre-order via Best Buy right now.
