Ultimate Weapon is a 1998 action-packed thriller starring wrestling legend Hulk Hogan alongside Carl Marotte and Cynthia Preston. The film is directed by Jon Cassar and written by David M. Rosenthal. The plot of the movie revolves around Hogan's character, Colonel Hogan, who works on a top-secret project with nuclear weapons. As he is retiring from active service, he becomes the target of a rogue ex-colonel, Steele (Marotte), who has hijacked a nuclear submarine and holds the world at ransom. Hogan's character must use all his skills and resources to save the world from the imminent threat of nuclear disaster.

Colonel Hogan is aided by Dr. Corrine Jeffries (Preston) who is a nuclear physicist working on the same project as Colonel Hogan. She lends her expertise to help Hogan track the location of the hijacked nuclear submarine and prevent Steele from detonating the weapons on board.

As Hogan and Corinne race against time, they face numerous roadblocks and enemies at every turn. They are aided by loyal soldiers who have worked with Hogan and are determined to help him stop Steele from destroying the world. However, Steele is cunning and smart, and his army of hired mercenaries poses a formidable challenge for Hogan and his team.

The action in Ultimate Weapon is intense and fast-paced, with many scenes featuring Hogan performing his wrestling moves on his opponents. The film also has a strong emotional core, as Hogan's character grapples with the guilt of creating these lethal nuclear weapons that have now fallen into the wrong hands.

Throughout the movie, there are many twists and turns that keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The stakes are high, and the consequences of failure are catastrophic. The tension builds to an explosive climax, as Hogan and his team risk everything to prevent Steele from launching the nukes.

Hogan, Marotte, and Preston all deliver strong performances in their respective roles. Hogan is convincing as a tough, battle-hardened colonel, and his charisma and on-screen presence elevate even the most pedestrian scenes. Marotte plays a suitably devious and sinister villain, and his performance is nuanced and layered. Preston brings intelligence and heart to her character, and her chemistry with Hogan is palpable.

The film's production values are high, and the special effects and action sequences are well-executed. The musical score by Peter Allen is suitably dramatic and adds to the tension and excitement of the movie.

In summary, Ultimate Weapon is a highly entertaining and thrilling action movie that delivers on all fronts. The film has a strong cast, great production values, and a compelling story that keeps the audience engaged from start to finish. Hogan is a force of nature on-screen, and his performance alone makes the film worth watching. Fans of action movies and wrestling aficionados are sure to enjoy this film.
