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>

Wow!
6 April 2001 | by (Stockton-on-Tees, England) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. It's another example of brilliant, under-rated acting by the one and only Rutger Hauer. In a way I feel sorry for Hauer, Like Christopher Lambert, he is a top quality actor but very under-rated.

Anyway, Rutger Hauer stars as a Vietnam War veteran. During battle, he was blinded by a mortar attack. He was then captured by a tribe in Vietnam and trained to master the sword. 20 years later, Hauer is back in the USA and sets out to find his fellow soldier friend, Frank.

The sword which Hauer uses in this movie is so cool. I love the sword fights in this movie.

8/10
