Suggested correction: John is the name of Howard's other son, who is also in the room. Bobby told the man to stay behind, and John was there when it happened, so he was asking John to vouch for him to Howard. This scene actually appears in the extended cut of the film.

Continuity mistake: Toward the end if the movie when Castle goes to Saint's compound to exact his final revenge, the first guard he kills is with a bow and arrow. Castle shoots him in the back but when the guard falls forward he reveals Castle on a perch directly in front facing him.

Suggested correction: He doesn't shoot him in the back. He shoots him in the front and the arrow penetrates through. If you slow it down, you can see the arrowhead pointing out of his back.

Continuity mistake: After Frank Castle climbs out of his flipped Pontiac GTO, Harry Heck walks up and points his shotgun at Frank. Frank points a closed switchblade knife at Harry and pushes the button, sending the knife blade flying into Harry's neck. When it switches back to Frank, there is still a blade on the knife, in the open position. After a cut to Harry, it switches back to Frank and the knife blade is gone.

Frank Castle: Those who do evil to others, the killers, the rapists, psychos, sadists, will come to know me well. Frank Castle is dead. Call me the Punisher.

Question: In the extended version, when Frank confronts Jimmy about his betrayal, why did he make Jimmy commit suicide instead of killing Jimmy himself?

Answer: Jimmy is drowning in massive gambling debt and has had to resort to selling everything of value he owns as well as steal money from evidence lockers to help pay his debt down. He has nothing to live for and is merely going through the motions of life, and coupled with his guilt over selling out Frank and getting his family killed, Frank concludes Jimmy needs to take his fate in his own hands.
