Storyline

Nick Parker was a Vietnam vet who was blinded during the war. He was found by one of the local tribes, who taught him to enhance his remaining senses and to expertly wield a sword. On his return to the United States, he goes to visit an old Army buddy, Frank Devereaux, but discovers that he and his wife are divorced, and Frank no longer lives there. What they don't know is that Devereaux was playing in a crooked casino in Vegas, and accumulated a large debt. The casino boss is willing to forgive his debt if he does something for him: Devereaux is a chemist, and they want him to make designer drugs. In order to make sure he does it, they try to kidnap his son. But Nick is there, and Nick saves the boy. Thus begins a road trip to Vegas to protect the boy and save his friend, with the boss' henchmen in pursuit. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Tim Matheson was introduced to producer Daniel Grodnik by writer Charles Robert Carner. Tim was interested in learning how to produce. Grodnik told him, "if you ever bring me a piece of material that I like, you can be a producer on it with me." 2 weeks later Matheson screened 'Zatoichi Challenged' for Grodnik to develop as an American remake. It took 7 years, 3 studios, 2 directors, and 11 drafts of the script to finally get the film about a blind samurai in America made. Grodnik sold it to Jeff Sagansky, the president of Tri-Star Pictures, by pitching him two ad lines: 'Pray you see him before he hears you' and 'He don't need no dog.' See more »

Great Film!, With Some Great Sword Fights, A Very Cool Story, And An Amazing Performance From Rutger Hauer!
11 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is a great film, with some great sword fights, a very cool story and an amazing performance from Rutger Hauer!. All the characters are awesome, and the fight between Hauer and Shô Kosugi at the end was just awesome!, plus Rutger Hauer is simply amazing in this!. However Brandon Call is extremely annoying as the kid, and Noble Willingham was a bit too over the top for my liking as the villain, but it was still very entertaining and a lot of fun!, plus the ending was great!. The finale was excellent, and it had some great chase scenes as well!, plus i thought Rutger Hauer's acting was fantastic!. at 86 minutes it's a bit too short, however i was very happy with the film, as it's very well made and exciting!, plus the character development is great!. There are quite a few shocking and disturbing moments, and Rutger has a great sense of humor as well!, plus the film is unpredictable for the most part!.This is a great film, with some great sword fights a very cool story and an amazing performance from Rutger Hauer, i highly recommend this one!. The Direction is great!. Phillip Noyce does a great job here,with great camera work, awesome angles, and keeping the film at a very fast pace!. There is a bit of blood and violence. We get, a few very bloody gunshot wounds,impaling's, cut off hand, lots of slicing and dicing, and bloody cuts ans wounds. The Acting is awesome!. Rutger Hauer is amazing as always, and is amazing here, he is extremely likable, witty, was very convincing as a blind man, is a great sword fighter!, is very charismatic, and was really into his role i loved him! (Hauer Rules!). Brandon Call is extremely annoying as the kid, and irritated the crap out of me, there was not 1 likable thing about him, i felt sorry for him for a bit at the end, but for the most part i hated him. Terry O'Quinn does what he has to do which was not much, he did OK i guess. Noble Willingham was too over the top for my liking as the villain, and wasn't very menacing, adequate at best. Lisa Blount did fine with what she had to do, which like Quinn, was not much.Randall 'Tex' Cobb was also too over the top as the other main villain. Nick Cassavetes(Lyle Pike),Rick Overton(Tector Pike), Meg Foster(Lynn Devereaux),and Shô Kosugi(The Assassin), all do what they have to do well. Rest of the cast are fine. Overall i highly recommend this one!. ***1/2 out of 5
