Weaponized (2016/Cinedigm Blu-ray)

Picture: C Sound: B Extras: C Film: B-

In America's constant battle against terrorism, the U.S. military needs a new weapon. Nanotechnology, the use of nano-machines to take over people's consciousness and to turn terrorist into suicide bombers against themselves. When Detective Walker (Johnny Messner) stumbles on the program, he realizes the program has already been abused and used on Americans ....and the military will do anything to stop him from stopping the program in Timothy Woodward Jr.'s Weaponized (2016).

Walker is an all American family man, a murder case falls into his hands of an American Vet suddenly killed Americans in broad daylight with no know reason and no memory of the incident and then killed himself when caught and questioned. What he discovers is the Military needing to get government approval to further the project and killed Americans as an example to prove their 'project' works. And they will kill anyone who opposes it or accidentally finds out about the program. Now, Walker is the target ...and anyone, even his friends and family could suddenly become his enemy.

At first I though there was hope for this movie, but they didn't go far enough. The nano-machines just took over people's minds, it would have been much more cooler if they formed armor or weapons for the users or even became sentient robot/being. It was one of those sci-fi movie with a deceptive covers, a cool looking robot-like character on the cover that was barely even in the movie. Mickey Rourke and Tom Sizemore also star.

The 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer offers an image that is manipulated, all over the place and annoying, so it is only so watchable with the occasional good shot, while the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless mix is more like it with a good soundfield, but the sound is nothing special beyond that. Extras include deleted scenes and a trailer.
