Title Best
Punisher, TheR1

    The Region 4 version of this disc misses out on;

  • Army of One: Punisher Origins featurette
  • Drawing Blood Bradstreet style featurette
  • Video Game Trailer
  • A full colour comic book

    The Region 1 version of this disc misses out on;

  • Czech and Hungarian soundtracks
  • Extra subtitle languages

    On the basis above, the Region 1 US release is clearly the winner. There also seems to be a Region 0 - Hong Kong version of this disc but I have read that the video quality is very bad and you cannot turn the subtitles off which makes me wonder about its heritage. 12/11/04 - Since this review was published I have received some correspondance from Ricardo in Portugal who advises that the Hong Kong R0 version has reasonable but overbright video, DTS and the subtitles can be turned on and off. Personally, I would still go for the Region 1 release but the Region 0 might be worth considering.
