Great Film!, With Some Great Sword Fights, A Very Cool Story, And An Amazing Performance From Rutger Hauer!
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
