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 »

This is one heck of a fighting movie!Rutger Hauer is really good in the film and I feel that he could have made a ton more fighting films just like this!Randall 'Tex' Cobb was awesome as the bad guy!There are a ton of villains in this movie and in My opinion this is one of the best movies were a fighting hero beats up and/or kills every bad guy in the movie!Terry O'Quinn,Noble Willingham,Meg Foster,Rick Overton,Charles Cooper,Shô Kosugi,Jay Pennison,and Tiger Chung Lee were good!In My opinion this is a classic fighting and thrilling action flick that should satisfy even Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme die hard fans!Very highly recommended!
