The Quest is a 1996 martial arts movie directed by Jean-Claude Van Damme (until 2014 his only directorial credit), who also stars as Christopher Dubois, a young American, who has to run away from New York, pursued by both mobsters and police. After long adventures Chris appears on a Siamese island where he is trained in martial arts. At last he became a participant of a tournament of best martial artists from all the world.
The following weapons were used in the film The Quest:
Smith & Wesson Model 10
