Default Punisher & Punisher War Zone 4K - HDD Reviews

The Punisher (Dolby Vision / HDR 10 + Dolby Atmos)

2004's The Punisher starring Thomas Jane as the titular one-man army of death and destruction is very much the first part of a franchise that never was. While a solid revenge action flick, it deviates from the character's traditional source material and suffers from a languid inactive pace at the hands of water/director Jonathan Hensleigh. When the action kicks in, it's high-gear bloodletting and proves to be an entertaining ride despite flaws. Lionsgate breathes some life back into this dead hero with a solid native 4K transfer with Dolby Vision HDR and a slick and impressive Dolby Atmos mix. Toss in all of the previous bonus features and you have a disc that proves to be a worthy upgrade over the previous Blu-ray.


Punisher: War Zone (Dolby Vision / HDR 10 + Dolby Atmos)

The third time isn't quite the charm as Punisher: War Zone aims to be the most faithful adaptation of the titular one-man army but just misses the mark. This time Ray Stevenson slips on the skull logo for an over-the-top brutally violent and darkly comical approach courtesy of director Lexi Alexander. While the film has violence and gore galore and stays true to the character origins, the comedy often veers too cartoonish for its own good. Lionsgate upgrades Punisher: War Zone from Blu-ray to 4K Ultra HD with a crisp and colorful 2160p upscaled transfer with Dolby Vision HDR and an aggressively loud Dolby Atmos mix. If you're a fan of the flick and are on the 4K train, this release of War Zone is a nice upgrade.
