Can't grasp a concensus from the posts. My opinion is that The Punisher in the 2004 movie was inspired by Rorchach... some screenplay geeks bought and read or just knew Watchmen and based many of The Punisher's drive to Rorchach- the desire to do good no matter the cost, no matter the price. I think that premise was developed by Alan Moore 20 years before The Punisher movie and some props go to Alam Moore for so clearly defining a hero who exists to get dirty to do the right thing.

You know that The Punisher is a comic book character, right?

I don't think there is a god. And if there is I'm nothing like him.

Its not that, its just what your saying seems HIGHLY implausible.
Have you read Punisher MAX? and the Marvel Knights run?
I had to shut my mouth, put up, and actually read it before making any more statements about the movies.

I don't mean to be a dick, but try finding already established threads to talk about this stuff.
This could've easily been talked about in one of the Watchmen Related threads.
The Jeff Jones could've fit into General Talk.
There is no need to start a new thread for every little topic.
Just saying.

You haven't even introduced yourself either. Theres a thread for that.
Find it. Let us know a bit about yourself. All we know is that you think Jeffery Jones is the greatest artist ever, and you think that the 2004 Punisher was inspired by Rorchach.

About that...
its SO close to the comic run Smutty mentioned, that in order to say the movie one is based on Rorschach, you'd have to point the same finger at the comic and say it was based on Rorschach. And I'm pretty sure thats not what they were going for.

Congrats on finally spelling Rorschach right though. ;)

Here's the thing. Presumably, The Punisher was based on The Punisher. A comic character that predates Rorschach.

That's it.

Also, you don't have to introduce yourself at all if you don't goddamn feel like it. Just sayin'.
