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>

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.
