Deadly Weapon is a 1989 American science fiction film directed by Michael Miner and starring Rodney Eastman.


A teenager named Zeke, bullied by some other teens finds a weapon that was lost in the river made by the military. Zeke uses it to get even with his persecutors. An army team led by the overzealous Lt. Dalton is sent to recover the weapon before its unstable reactor overloads and causes a meltdown.



RoboCop creator Michael Miner was invited by Charles Band to create a sequel to the 1978 film Laserblast, which was also produced by Band, in August 1986. Miner at this time worked as second unit director on RoboCop set. While writing the script, Band and Miner decided to make an original film, based on the central idea.
