I can’t believe I have yet to mention The Perfect Weapon in our movie recommendations column. When you’re talking martial arts movies that are right up there with the Van Damm’s and the Lundgren’s of the world you kind of have to mention the Perfect Weapon. The plot goes something like this:
Jeff, a young delinquent, is enrolled by his father in a Kenpo school, in the hopes of teaching the boy some self-discipline. Years later, Jeff’s mentor, Kim, is being threatened by one of the Korean mafia families. Jeff tries to help his old friend, but is too late to prevent Kim’s death at the hands of an unknown hitman. Vowing revenge, Jeff takes on all of the families, using his martial arts skills to find the man who killed his friend.
Keep in mind using ONLY martial arts skills. After all, he’s the perfect weapon! The movie stars a very studly (at the time) Jeff Speakman with appearances by Mako and the late John Dye. A young Mariska Hargitay is in the movie as is an Unreality favorite Jame Hong.

I love the music in this movie!
