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

Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers with 4" barrels are seen in hands of Lord Edgar Dobbs (Roger Moore), Harri Smythe (Jack McGee) and some of Turkish smugglers during the boarding combat.

A naval cannon is mounted on Lord Dobbs' junk. Though it produces muzzle flame and smoke, it seems to be a mockup rather than a real gun.
