Imagine a hybrid of "Die Hard" and "Outbreak" and you'll have some idea what to expect from "Deadly Outbreak," a formulaic action flick that has martial-arts star Jeff Speakman filling in for Bruce Willis as the right man in the wrong place at the right time. Only undemanding genre fans will care.
Speakman plays Dutton Hatfield, a Special Operations officer assigned to the U.S. embassy in Israel. He goes along for the ride when some visiting American VIPs visit a chemical-weapons research center. Unfortunately, the VIPs are impostors. Led by a former military official (Ron Silver), they take over the center to gain control of something breathlessly described as "possibly the most deadly chemical warfare agent ever designed." But even though they are heavily armed and highly trained, they are no match for our resourceful hero.
Under the uninspired direction of Rick Avery, "Deadly Outbreak" quickly devolves into a series of predictable cat-and-rat encounters, as the increasingly frustrated Silver repeatedly sends his flunkies out to kill the indestructible Speakman. Occasionally, Speakman tries to bring a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor to the repetitious proceedings. (When some goons try to rape scientist Rochelle Swanson, he shouts: "Hey! That's not practicing safe sex!") But Speakman seems much more comfortable when he is kicking butts or cracking heads.
For most of the movie, Silver is reduced to sitting behind a desk, glowering at his underlings, and purring commands like, "Would you be kind enough to go up to the second floor and bring me Hatfield's head?" Later, he drops all pretense of being polite, and snarls: "Gallo, bring me Hatfield's head!" It comes as absolutely no surprise that, despite the best efforts of the bad guys, our hero's head remains firmly attached to his neck.

Let's get one thing straight: even though I've given this movie four stars and declare it a good film for star Jeff Speakman, it is definitely *not* the Jeff Speakman film I would like to see. The Perfect Weapon is Speakman's curse, being a high standard to judge the rest of an otherwise uneven solo career by. Martial arts fans want tons of cool karate fights from the man who popularized kenpo on the movie screen, and even though this isn't exactly what you get in "Deadly Outbreak," it's still a good action-adventure.

The story: a terrorist group led by a murderous colonel (Ron Silver, Timecop) infiltrates an Israeli chemical plant to steal a devastating weapon, and the only man who can stop them is an ex-Special Forces embassy guard (Speakman).

Given that the movie was produced by the relatively young Nu Image company, one might assume that this film was never destined for a theatrical release, but that doesn't keep it from being Speakman's largest-scaled movie at that time. Like Steven Seagal in Under Siege, Speakman graduates from the grittier and more personalized street violence of his previous fare for a wider range of action and the big-budget feel. And like that Seagal vehicle, "Deadly Outbreak" is a Die Hard rip-off, albeit one even more packed with action movie clichés.

Deadly Outbreak released in 1996 directed by Rick Avery he directed the Expert which I've yet to see. It stars Jeff Speakman as as Sargent Dutton Hatfield, Ron Silver as Colonel Baron & Rochelle Swanson as Dr. Allie Levin. Start off in Washington DC this disgruntled Colonel has a group of men set charges to DC. He & his group then hijack a plane & take it to Israel. Then we meet Sargent Dutton Hatfield he is taking him to a chemical laboratory & doesn't know what Baron is about oh but Hatfield finds out cause when Baron's men take the laboratory over they shoot & kill a lot of people it's a brutal scene. This is a fun movie ok you have Jeff Speakman kicking a** great kempo. There's this Scientist Allie she has this canister that has this fatal gas which SGT Hatfield has to save a lot but she's not annoying so it makes for a fun movie. Baron as all terrorists in these types of movies wants billions & a jet. Yes this was a bad outline for the plot. Jeff Speakman delivers & he's is a very underrated action star. Ron Silver he was good the villain he does good with these roles. Rochelle Swanson suprised me she had a likeable character. I'd say just like Army Of One this didn't get a theatrical release & it doesn't look like some direct to video clunker like Univeersal Soldier Regeneration or Punisher Warzone which Warzone got a theatrical release & was not worthy. Deadly Outbreak deserves a DVD & Blu Ray release in the US cause I can't find the VHS anywhere so you can guess how I saw it. If this ever gets a DVD release I'd definitely buy it.
