The deadliest weapon in the world is Syphon Filter. You can't see it, smell it or touch it, yet it can kill you if you're not chosen to survive. The film (based on the best-selling Playstation game) follows the exploits of GABE LOGAN and his partner LIAN XING, the top operative for a covert agency, tracking a rogue agent, ERICH RHOEMER, who's developed Syphon Filter to unleash it on the world.

On a South American raid, undercover agent ELLIS dies at Rhomer’s hands. Gabe finds him, and swears revenge. At Agency HQ, his supervisors, BENTON and MARKINSON, tell him to hold his temper. After following a Tibet lead, Gabe and Lian return to shocking news.
Rhoemer’s in the U.S. with his men, and demands a huge ransom—on CNN. To add to the confusion, his men have taken over sections of D.C. and armed them with viral bombs. Gabe and Lian must stop him and his henchmen, ANTON GIRDEAUX and MARA ARAMOV.

Gabe goes through the mission and is nearly killed on several occasions. He finally fights Girdeaux in a showdown at Freedom Memorial.

Back at HQ, Benton is place on leave for the mistakes made on the last mission. Gabe and Lian find out the truth about Syphon Filter. By use of genetics, it can target and kill anyone. By use of nano-machines, it can mimic any virus on the planet, making it the perfect weapon.

Gabe and Lian both think there’s something else going on here, and investigate Rhoemer’s last contact, JONATHAN PHAGAN (a wealthy patron), at an art gala in New York. At the Gala, Gabe runs into Aramov (who escaped) and Benton—the mole. He kills Benton and captures Mara, but Phagan escapes.

At Agency HQ, Mara tells them the full scope of Rhoemer’s plan. From his base in Kaszhakstan, he will launch a missile into the U.S. The missile contains variations of Syphon Filter, which he came to Washington to get, and will cause mass genocide.

Gabe must stop him, and it’s going to take everything he’s got…

Covert operative Gabe Logan pursues a rogue agent who possesses a DNA adaptable virus. The operative must stop him, but his agency complicates things-they want the virus as well. The story is loosely based on a game called Syphon Filter.
