The Punisher

Continuity mistake: When Frank sits up after being dragged out of the ambulance by his friends, he takes off his jacket with his hands/arms behind his back, but in the following shot his hands/arms have switched and are now at the front.

Continuity mistake: When Saints's men are killing Castle's family, there is a shot of Frank and his dad shooting at one of the guys behind the barbecue stand. In one shot Frank and his dad shoot the salad bowl and most of the salad comes out, then in the following shot the salad has magically reappeared.

Continuity mistake: When Saint's men murder Castle's family, the man who tried to escape on the motorcycle is shot and falls off next to the motorcycle. The motorcycle slides and comes to rest with the back of the motorcycle facing the large deck and ocean. However, when Castle chases his wife and son, he picks up the motorcycle, and it is turned around with the front facing the ocean.

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot where the 4x4 flips, you can see a stunt driver and a dummy inside the vehicle.

Continuity mistake: When Frank's family is being attacked, Frank and his father are inside the house fighting with some thug hiding behind the barbecue stand. At one point a shotgun shot is visible in the black metal lid on the left of the stand. In the next shot, the lid is intact, and then when the gas bottles blow up, it's shot again.

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Howard Saint is being dragged behind the car into the lot full of burning cars, he is catching on fire in a close up. Then in a far shot and Saint is no longer on fire, but in the next close up he is on fire again.

Continuity mistake: When Frank is pulling down the gravestone with a chain, in the shot from the front, William's is to the left about a foot away and Maria's is to the right, the same distance. In the shot from behind the stone, there is another stone you can just about see on the right of the screen and it can't be William's because this stone, or something, is directly behind Frank's.

Continuity mistake: When Castle and Joan are talking and Joan is touching Castle's face, there is a shot where her hand is no longer touching his face. In the following shot her hand is back on his face.


Continuity mistake: When the Punisher is eating in the diner, Harry Heck walks in and when he stops at his table the red chair is tucked into the table, but in the next shot when he sits, the chair is facing out.

Visible crew/equipment: When Howard Saint's men begin to chase after Frank's wife in their red 4x4, just after a couple of guys jump in the back, the camera pans forward to get a view of the driver. As the camera pans forward a boom mic with a large pole is visible in the reflection on the car.

Continuity mistake: During the dinner scene, when Frank and Joan almost kiss, they keep changing distance to each other. Every time the shot is from over his shoulder, their faces are really close together, almost touching. When the shot is from over her shoulder, they are further apart.


Continuity mistake: When Frank crashes his Pontiac after speeding away from Harry Heck, Heck pulls up and walks up to Frank who is climbing out of his car. As he walks up, a piece of car is on the right side of Heck, but after Frank kills Heck, it cuts to an overhead shot and the piece of car is now on his left.

Continuity mistake: When Frank crashes his car and Harry Heck pulls up in his, note the distance from Heck's car to Frank's car, perhaps only a foot, yet when it cuts to an overhead shot, Heck's car is now quite some distance away from Frank's without anyone moving it.

Continuity mistake: When the cops turn up at the firearms deal, someone says, "Your under arrest," and there are two to three cops. When Frank says his line, the camera cuts to an overhead shot and there are now 6 cops all grouped together standing only a few feet from Bobby, Frank and the others.

Factual error: In the scene where Micky and Howard are discussing Livia's parking ticket, Micky mentioned that date the ticket was issued was September 5th, a Thursday. The movie takes place in 2003 where September 5th was a Friday.

Continuity mistake: Whilst being chased by Harry Heck, Castle drives through a railroad gate. As he does so a piece of wood seems to get jammed or stuck on his right headlight. In the very next shot, the piece of wood is nowhere in sight, not even on the road.

Continuity mistake: The bullet-hole scar on Frank's chest moves closer to, and further away from his sternum several times during the film.

Character mistake: The newspaper states Frank's son as being 10 years old. But according to the headstone dates, he died at age 8.

Continuity mistake: When Quentin pulls out Dave's eyebrow ring, there's no ring in the pliers.

Visible crew/equipment: When the bad-guys blow Frank up towards the beginning, as they drive away the camera pans with the car, and you can make out the shadow of several crew members and possibly the camera at the bottom right of the screen.

Frank Castle: I leave this as a declaration of intent. So no one will be confused. One. Si vis pacum para bellum. Latin. The boot camp Sergeant made us recite it like a prayer. Si vis pacum para bellum. If you want peace, prepare for war. Number two. Frank Castle is dead. He died with his family. Number three. In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacy, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No. Not vengeance. Punishment.
