Killing Machine
The year is 2029. After a war, The Director (Steven Seagal) rules The State by permanent observation of everyone. The killer Condor (Johnny Messner) fulfils his latest mission to eliminate a politician opposing the Director. However, he lets one female witness get away, ignoring his usual instruction to leave no witnesses alive. Since the death of his wife Nina (Sasha Jackson), the killer struggles with his emotions and becomes unpredictable. The Controller (Richard Tyson) thinks that Condor needs re-programming to become an effective killing machine again. Condor escapes before his brain-washing and finds his wife alive and well. Together, they begin a fight against the rule of the Director.

This could have been an interesting movie with a better lead actor (Messner is a poor man's Vin Diesel here), three times the budget and a reworked script (it holds some real surprises, but some dialogues made me cringe). The colourful scenery of a future America with Asian influence reminded me of 'Blade Runner'. Although 'Perfect Weapon' has a couple of good moments, there are too many lows along the way. For probably the first time in a decade, Seagal gets a different role than the usual retired CIA agent - but that's not enough to save an ambitious, yet unconvincing sci-fi flick.
