Storyline

Nick Parker was a Vietnam vet who got blinded during the war. He would be found by one of the local tribes. They would teach how to handle a sword. He would eventually become quite good with it. He would then return to the States and would visit an old Army buddy. When he gets there, he discovers that he and his wife are divorced. What they don't know is that he (his friend) was playing in a crooked casino in Vegas, and accumulated a large debt. The owner's willing to forget his debt, if he does something for him. His friend is a chemist and they want him to make some designer drugs, and in order to make sure he does it they try and kidnap his son. But lucky Nick is there, Nick saves his son but not his wife. He and the boy begin a road trip for Vegas to save his father, with the owner's people in pursuit. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Goofs

Immediately after Nick's scenes in Vietnam, he is seen walking down a stretch of highway signed as Florida State Road 84, which is shown as a 2-laned stretch of road. At the time of this movie's production (1988-89), the real SR-84 had already been upgraded to a 4-laned divided highway (just prior to becoming part of present-day Interstate 75). See more »

Good fun movie.
14 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I always like a good Rutger Hauer movie. I wish he got more roles though in mainstream films. This one is a rather fun flick to watch though. It is about a man blinded in Vietnam, he was found by villagers of a remote village and trained to use a sword. Flash forward, as the blind man is looking for an old buddy and goes to the buddies ex wife's house. While there these people looking to capture the buddy's son kill her. Hauer takes the boy and goes across country to find the father. While on his journey the killers are pursuing them as they are looking for the kid so they can get the dad to make some designer drugs for them. Not only does this one have action, but there is a lot of comedy too. As long as you don't take this one to seriously, this one is fun to watch. I especially like the two idiot brothers who work for the bad guys.
