When it comes to The Punisher (remake of course) there's not an overly large amount of special packaging designs to choose from. This release comes presented in a somewhat memorabel slick looking steelbook design which I think is a really great choice for the film. The red tone for the artwork feels like a much need alternation from the usual version and we even get a nice look for the interion design.
True fans might also consider the R1US release for an alternative digipack design.
Looking at the disc we get quite anice lineup but it's not the ultimate choice for a number of reasons. First up this only has the theatrical cut so if you're more in favor of the extended version be sure to check out the R1 (extended) version (which also offers a few more extras). If you do want the theatrical cut this release is quite a good choice but you still miss out on a few extras of the R1 (R-rated) release as well as the DTS track found on the R1 and R0 Hong Kong edition.
Overall I'd say this edition is worth it's price based purely on the packaging rather than on the discs but a true fan would probably want to doubledip anyway.
