Overview from movies.go.com:
The Punisher follows an FBI undercover agent, Frank Castle (Thomas Jane); he's a former Special Forces member who is finally moving into a safe desk job, to the delight of his wife and son. But when his family is executed after witnessing a mafia hit, Castle dons a black battle suit, arms himself with a ton of guns, and seeks swift revenge.

Personal Critique:
One of the better comic book movies that I have seen. I only wish that the ending had involved more happily-ever-after magic elements, but that's just the girl in me. :) The movie moved quickly, but not too fast---just enough so that it rarely dragged and yet everything got covered that should. It was interesting how he goes about his revenge, [and I'm not one for revenge movies usually] and definitely very entertaining. It will be interesting to see if they decide to make any sequels to the movie, but I guess that's what the comic book is for!
