The Perfect Weapon (1991) Logo Starring Jeff Speakman is like this..
Don't they look similar Jox ?
Again the plot similarities- Jeff Speakman seeking revenge for his teacher murder, Dolph Lundgren seeking revenge for his parents murders. Villains are again yakudza in both films ...Clone movies

Now Jox I would want to ask u one more question ! Do u think WARNER Bros Blu ray is it for real in widescreen ? To me this Blu ray has framing problems - in this widescreen format. I compared VHS, DVDV, HD versions of SILT and basically that WB did is cutting the top and the bottom image from standard 4/3 VHS fullscreen version.

In my perception a real widescreen is when the top and the bottom part of the the image is cut but also add some new image on sides (right and left). In SILT case we don't have any image addition on the sides - maybe just 2 mm. one more thing when we deal with a real widescreen top /bottom cuts are less leaving more image info, plus addition image on the sides giving a right frame format . Cutting simply just the top an d/bottom like in SILT case footage loose integrity and space (background details, room). Faces look kind of too big and some disproportions... Also eng subtitles got lost for japan. language parts after this image cuts which are not right to me. Zooming goofs shots also ( jump equipment, dummy, crew t-shirt etc) created image disproportion to me too.. This is not a real widescreen intended I guess

Marked for Death (1990) DVD edition had this problem but for it's Blu ray released got fixed adding a lot of image after reframing.

I try not to gush much when I do interviews but I sure raised their awareness of how cult the film has become (which most people involved don't realise).

I'm not into movie rankings, but I'd say maybe top 10 rather top 5.

It's a lot of fun and I can watch it any day but I've always been on the fence with the cheesy, over the top, tongue in cheek tone and what looks to me more like an early 90s TV show. In comparison I consider DARK ANGEL / I COME IN PEACE to be of superior quality.
