Not as much violence as you would expect from the rating.
I saw this movie when I was twelve and I thought that it was very good. It had violence, but it was not as bad as it suggested. There is fighting, stabbing, punching, and gunshots, but I didn't think it was pervasive brutal violence. At the most it could of gotten a strong violence. Now if you are looking for a gory Punisher movie you could watch Punisher-War Zone which is a lot more extreme with it's level of violence and gore. There is a very brief scene of nudity. You see a girl walk past the screen topless, but you only see her for about a second and it is non-sexual even though it appears to be in a club. Pretty mild language for a R rated movie. I mean it has some F words, but it is not a frequent there is only 7 f words within the movie which is pretty mild.
I think if your child is 12 and wants to see this and you think they can handle some violence they could probably watch this.
