Trivia / The Punisher (1989)

  • Banned in China: The film was initially banned in South Africa for two years.
  • California Doubling: While the location of the city is unsaid, it is easy to suppose that it's on the United States. The whole film was made in Sydney, Australia.
  • Direct-to-Video: The film had some trouble to make it into the theaters in the US, and it was eventually only released on video.
  • Disowned Adaptation: Compared to the other two Punisher films, Marvel Comics isn't too fond of the film, and doesn't list it under their "Movies" section on their website, a distinction it also shares with Fantastic Four (2015).
  • Dyeing for Your Art: Blond haired Dolph Lundgren dyed his hair black for the titular role.
