  • "Agent Paul Budiansky’s character is layered. He is a cop who wants to make things happen for the right reasons but there his a purity of intention is defeated…why? He sees the corruption of the establishment. So, he is a little broken and damaged. He has had problems with addictions while undercover which ultimately impacts on his closest friend. The guilt propels him into the confrontation with The Punisher."
  • "Castle and Budiansky have a bond, something deeper than just friends who work together. Castle lost his wife and daughter. His despair takes him further than that of Budiansky but both sense the injustice of a corrupt system. Both have special knowledge of hunting an opponent and getting their prey. Soap appears to be inept and untogether. Budiansky hates unprofessionalism and so it begins a battle of wills. Soap is a desk cop and Budiansky takes him into a dangerous world but all is not what it seems."
  • "Lexi Alexander is a very talented director and we expect more great things from her. We had a great time on this movie because Lexi leads from the front. She knows what she wants and expects all her crew to deliver. When she hires you it's because you can do the job. We brought our ideas to the table and Lexi was very open to them. It was a genuine pleasure to come to work and it was fun too."
  • "The Punisher is dark. It will create a debate over vigilantes but Castle answers the question, There is a price to pay and it is a heavy, painful price. When soldiers return from war the people at home have to understand many of them are changed forever. They have seen things and done things we cannot imagine. This film is from the graphic novel and I feel it genuinely represents the character, ‘Hard R’."
