The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

The Manchurian Candidate is the 2004 feature film remake of John Frankenheimer's classic 1962 political thriller of the same name. As in the original, the plot centers around a decorated US Army soldier who is part of a powerful political family and the possibility that he may have been brainwashed after being captured during a battle (the setting is now updated to the 1991 Gulf War instead of the Korean War). The film was directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs) and stars Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Jon Voight, and Liev Schreiber.

The following weapons were used in the 2004 remake of The Manchurian Candidate:
