The gimmick in The Perfect Weapon is that the kick-ass hero (newcomer Jeff Speakman) practices a form of karate known as kenpo, in which the traditional arm and leg thrusts are broken up into lots of tiny machine-gun movements. During the fight scenes, it sounds as if a hundred watermelons were being clobbered at once. Other than that, it’s business as usual, with the all-American Speakman proving the most generic vigilante this genre has spawned yet.
