I am a huge movie buff. I love all types of movies, but one of my favorite genres is action. That is one of the reasons I was really excited to check out Weaponized. As soon as I read about it, I thought it sounded great. Honestly, it was a really good movie. It kept my attention the whole time and I really enjoyed it.
A damaged homicide detective must prevent a grieving father from unleashing a “robotic virus” in WEAPONIZED, an action-packed thriller arriving on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD March 1. Ripped-from-the-headlines horrors meets 21st century weapons tech in this muscular sci-fi film featuring an all-star action cast with Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, Heat), Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler, Iron Man 2), Johnny Messner (4GOT10) and Jon Foo, star of the upcoming CBS series “Rush Hour”.
After a blatant terrorist attack on the Pentagon, and the resulting new war on terror, private military contractor Kyle Norris (Sizemore) facilitates the development of a bio-mechanical weapons program by Professor Clarence Peterson (Rourke). The next-gen program allows soldiers to swap consciousness with a target, giving them temporary, yet complete, control. While the program was intended to combat terrorists and safe guard American soldiers, abuse has been rampant. Enter down-and-out Detective Walker (Messner), who unwittingly stumbles upon the failing bio-weapons program, and he’s forced to fight to both shut it down and protect his young family from those who’ll stop at nothing to keep things moving forward.
Timothy Woodward Jr., the producer/director behind the recent action films Checkmate, starring Danny Glover, Sean Astin and Vinne Jones and 4Got10 starring Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Vivica Fox and Johnny Messner, delivers a non-stop genre film that delivers both thrills and a shocking twist of an ending that’ll keep audiences guessing until the credits roll. Taylor Cole (“CSI: Miami” and “The Glades”) and Michael Paré also co-star; bonus features include deleted scenes.
“WEAPONIZED gave us the unique opportunity to combine fast-paced action with an intellectual scientific element that really makes you think. With the plot being set in the future, we were able to really use our imagination and create our own world, making the storytelling more exciting and challenging,” said Woodward Jr.
