Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (Cantonese title: 力王, Lik wong) is a 1991 Hong Kong martial arts splatter film loosely based on the 1987-1990 Japanese manga of the same name by Masahiko Takajo and Tetsuya Saruwatari. The film takes place in a dystopian future where capitalist nations have privatized goverment businesses (including prisons) and stars Siu-Wong Fan as Ricky Ho, a superhuman martial artist who is admitted into one of these prisons. The film follows his journey to bring down the prison's corrupt leadership and free the enslaved prisoners. The film, known for its over-the-top gore and violence, has since become a cult classic.

The following weapons were used in the film Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky:


Thompson Center G2 Contender

The Warden (Ka-Kui Ho) uses a Thompson Center G2 Contender as his sidearm, which he prominently uses in the film's climax.
