Prototype Power Glove Massacre Shockingly Nintendo-less!

The premise of the new sci-fi thriller Prototype reminds me very much of a mostly forgotten film from 1989, Deadly Weapon, about an emotionally disturbed teen that gets hold of a military laser gun, which itself was a pseudo-remake of 1978's Laserblast, a cult fave about a troubled teen that gets his hand on an alien laser cannon.
