I have the DVD, as well as the VHS (before the DVD was out).
I *LOVE* that part where he drops through the skylight and blows the hell out of that place with the light machinegun(?).
Yeah...having the Punisher be all mopey and shit is ridiculous.
While there were scenes in the original where he was surely questioning who he was and what he had become, there wasn't any moment of him being "soft". Sure, he rescued the kids, but it wasn't the same as suddenly finding a love interest, or getting all weepy eyed once he saw Jake, etc. The level of detachment from "Frank Castle" and considering himself a completely different person (The Punisher) was perfect.
