"Rutger Hauer did a superb job in all areas of the movie, and I applaud him for his acting efforts in this film, as well as his other acting stints.
I enjoyed the movie, it had great continuity, a good film score, and the acting was at times funny and also very serious. I highly recommend this film to any Rutger Hauer fans, as well as
those who enjoy action adventure/martial arts & sword flix."
A different kind of hero

"If you liked the old "Kung Fu" TV series, you'll like this movie. Soft spoken and easy going Nick Parker (Rutger Hauer), like Kwai Chang Caine, roams the civilized world in search of ... peace and tranquility? And, like our Kung Fu hero of the Old West, he is ready to come out of his mild mannered shell to defend the weak and fight evil. How he acquired such fighting skills is even stranger than how Kwai Chang Caine became a Kung Fu Master. Especially considering he is blind.
So what sets this movie apart from other action movies? Rutger Hauer.
Rutger Hauer is a really good actor when he applies himself, which he does not always do in his films. But he is at his pinnacle here, making you believe that what you see is what you get. He will make you believe a blind man can develop a six sense (with a little help from a mysterious tribe somewhere.)
I took a half star off because of a lame attempt at humor. I like a laugh as much as the next guy and there was some decent humor interlaced in the story but, a blind man driving around in heavy traffic, going up one-way streets, is something I expect to see in a three stooge's movie. It was out of place here. Still, this is a good action movie. 3 1/2 stars."
Rutger Hauer has Blind Fury

"If you're wondering why I give this film such a high rating it's because I'm a big Rutger Hauer fan. The Dutch actor is one of my favourites and even a bad movie is good if it has Rutger Hauer in it. This is one of three films with Hauer that I like the most.
Nick Parker, blind vietnam vet is taken in by a group of natives and is trained in swordsmenship. He then returns to America many years later trying to find his long lost vietnam buddy (Terry O'quinn from TV's Millenium and Jag)that is being blackmailed in making chemical drugs to a Las Vegas mobster (Noble Willingham from Walker, Texas Ranger). The mobster tries to kidnap his young son (Brandon Call from Baywatch) but the son is rescued by Parker and the two try to get to the boys father.
If the movie didn't have such good actors and especially Hauer it would be another acton flick on the shelves of the videostore. The action is good and the actors make the most of the plot but it is the special bond that developes between Hauer and Call as the young boy that works the best. All actors make good, Terry O'quinn is the father that tries to be a hero and save his loved ones but always chickens out. There is only two really unnecessary characters in the film but they are mostly used as the comedians to make up for the two heavies, Noble Willingham as the main mobster and his hitman Slag, a great Randall "Tex" Cobb."

This is a superb film starring Rutger Hauer. It is a well made movie with good acting and a lot of action as well as humour.
Rutger plays as a Vietnam War veteran who lost his sight following an explosion. He was captured by the Japanese and his captors taught him Samurai fighting. He becomes an excellent swordsman. The film then moves forward several years later when Rutger returns to America and goes to visit his old war pal, only to find that he had been kidnapped by some villains and forced to make drugs. He goes to rescue his friend. From this develops an exciting and action packed adventure where he displays his exceptional and creative fighting skills.
If you are a fan of the Dutch actor, Rutger and you love adventure and excitement, then you will not go wrong with this movie.
