The Punisher (2004 film)

The Punisher is a 2004 American comic book vigilante action film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, starring Thomas Jane as the antihero Frank Castle The Punisher and John Travolta as the villain Howard Saint, a money launderer who orders the death of Castles entire family.

When Bobby Saint James Carpinello and Mickey Duka Eddie Jemison meet with European arms dealer Otto Krieg at the Tampa, Florida seaport, the FBI intervenes and Saint is killed while Duka is jailed. Krieg, supposedly killed in the shootout, is actually undercover FBI agent and former U.S. Army Delta Force operator Frank Castle Thomas Jane. Shortly thereafter, he retires from the FBI and attends a family reunion at his fathers Roy Scheider oceanside home in Aguadilla Bay, Puerto Rico. Tampa crime boss Howard Saint John Travolta is enraged by the death of his son, and with righthand man Quentin Glass Will Patton bribes the FBI for confidential information about Krieg. Saint orders Castle murdered, and Saints wife, Livia Laura Harring, demands Castles entire family be killed as well to settle the score.At the reunion, gunmen including Glass and John Saint Carpinello, Bobbys identical twin, kill most of the extended family. Castle and his father kill several of the attackers before Castles father is killed. Castles wife and son try to escape, but John Saint runs over them with a truck, killing them. Castle, shot in the chest and blown off a pier in an explosion set by Glass, survives and is nursed back to health by a local fisherman, Candelaria Veryl Jones. Once recovered, Castle goes to Tampa and takes refuge in an old tenement where three young outcasts Dave Ben Foster, Bumpo John Pinette, and Joan Rebecca Romijn live. Castle abducts Duka, who fearfully gives up information about the Saints whom he, too, hates, and so willingly becomes Castles mole. Castle starts exacting revenge on the police and FBI agents who have been bribed to close the investigation of his familys murder. In the process, he sabotages Saints moneylaundering business and severs Saints partnership with Cuban mobsters the Toro Brothers, and starts tailing Livia and Glass, learning in the process that Glass is a closeted homosexual. ........
