This is the 1st and only Marvel movie I have watched so far.
The Punisher is an action and revenge story with a rather predictable plot. The main character, Frank Castle, is an ex FBI agent who ran afoul of a mafia boss whose son got killed as a result of an FBI operation to prevent an illegal arms deal from taking place.
Soon afterwards Castle retires but that doesn't stop gangsters from slaughtering his whole family. Frank is the only survivor but everyone presumes him dead, too, however his former colleagues do nothing to bring the criminals to justice.
And then he returns and starts hunting his enemies who are all such total scum that one can't help feeling intense satisfaction when they die one by one from rather unnatural causes...
The moral is simple and straightforward: when the official law enforcement doesn't fulfill its duty, then the task shifts to common citizens. I can't say that I entirely disagree:)
The movie has no s*xual content whatsoever and is pretty traditional in other ways, too. Frank's wife is apparently a housewife, there are no female action figures etc; however, graphic violence would make it pretty disturbing were it not for its rather cartoonish character.
If your husband is at all like mine, he'll love it:)
Here is the official Marvel Trailer:
