    • Punisher: War Zone is presented on 4K UHD courtesy of Lionsgate Films with a 2160p transfer in 2.40:1. The IMDb lists Punisher: War Zone as having had a 2K DI, and I'm assuming this new 4K UHD version...

    • Marty gave top marks to the original 1080p Blu-ray's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 track, so I obviously can't "top" that, other than to say while the difference is arguably not huge between the previous track...

    • Upscaled from a 2K DI, Punisher: War Zone actually enjoys a notable bit of refinement and clarity with this 2160p 2.35:1 transfer with HDR10 and Dolby Vision. If you've seen the film, you're already well...

    • The fun trick with the audio mix for Punisher: War Zone is the simple fact that the Blu-ray already came with an aggressive and impressive DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio track. So it's on that note that I'll just...

    • Punisher: War Zone takes the titular anti-hero and goes to a far different extreme than 2004's The Punisher. While it may be a more faithful depiction of the character, it also ramps up the absurdity and...
