39. Frank Castle's Family In The Punisher (2004)

Assassinated By: Quinton Glass, John Saint, and other anonymous assassins hired by Howard Saint
Cause of Death: Rampant gunfire

Until Hollywood gets their ish together and produces a satisfactory Punisher, we'll have to live with this extremely disappointing Frank Castle flick starring Thomas Jane.

While not a complete trainwreck, 2004's The Punisher suffers from miscasting and an uneven tone. Yet, a few scenes hint at the strong movie that could've been, specifically the execution of Castle's whole family during an outdoor reunion. Director Jonathan Hensleigh doesn't hold back; kids and old ladies are gunned down in what's arguably the grimmest family get-together of the last ten years. That annoying drunk uncle of yours doesn't seem so bad anymore, huh?
