RELEASE DATE: May 21, 2024

On May 21, 2024, Kino Lorber Studio Classics will be releasing a Blu-ray for Perfect Weapon, a 1991 martial arts/action film directed by Mark DiSalle (Kickboxer) and starring Kenpo 5.0 founder, Jeff Speakman. For the first time, the film will be presented with a Brand New HD Master – from a 4K Scan of the 35mm Original Camera Negative!

Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal certainly had the action movie market cornered during the early 90’s, but martial arts fans would be wise not to pass up this B-movie gem starring Jeff Speakman (Street Knight). The well-oiled Kenpo practitioner was granted the spotlight for only one or two theatrical ventures in Hollywood before entering the straight to video realm and his 1991 debut Perfect Weapon remains the standout. While Speakman’s acting leaves something to be desired, the plethora of fight scenes choreographed by veteran stuntman Rick Avery make “The Perfect Weapon” an action buff’s delight.

The film is known for its innovative fight scenes which feature rapid chain punches. The film also stars Mako Iwamatsu (Silent Assassins), James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China), Charles Kalani, Jr. (Black Rain), Seth Sakai (Hawaii Five-O), Professor Toru Tanaka (The Running Man), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (Showdown in Manila), Dante Basco (Blood and Bone)
