Critic Reviews for The Perfect Weapon

...the picture's downfall is a result of its unusually sluggish execution and absence of a wholeheartedly compelling protagonist...

February 5, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

I adore this movie, and my joy is only fettered by the fact that Speakman did not go on to become a household name.

December 6, 2018 | Full Review…

Isn't the most explosive of film debuts but it's still a strong and entertaining martial arts action entry.

a reasonably decent martial arts action picture

Candy for all martial-arts enthusiasts

April 27, 2003 | Rating: 3/5

Better than expected actioner that was supposed to launch Speakman into a big-time movie career; then Street Knight shot that notion down.

Audience Reviews for The Perfect Weapon


The fight scenes are quite well-staged with the silent hero, Jeff Speakman in his debut martial arts movie. Magnificent!

The storyline is kinda weak and the end fight is a bit of a gyp, but it's got some great fighting sequences in it by the modren-day master of Kenpo karate and the faster-than-shit Jeff Speakman, who peaked with this...his first starring role. A guilty pleasure, though I'm not afraid to admit it. Especially when he breaks out the sticks. This inspired me to buy some and take up weapons back in the day. He tears shit up with those.
