"You like breathing?"
Thomas Jane really doesn't want you to forget that he's The Punisher, even though he was replaced in the Marvel comic book franchise by Ray Stevenson in 2008's Punisher: War Zone. While many of us fans still feel that The Punisher has never had the movie treatment that the character deserves, Jane's new short film, Dirty Laundry, might just come closer than any of the three previous feature films. Strongly produced, well-acted, ultraviolent and decidedly NSFW, it's a really cool love note to a character that Thomas Jane clearly cares a lot for.
Will this amount to anything? Would anyone green light a new Punisher movie starring a version of the character pre-reboot? Who knows, but as a proof of concept, Dirty Laundry is a solid reminder that The Punisher still has some life in him.
CraveOnline will be back with more Punisher news after we jot this down in our war journal.
