In the 1990's Marvel Comics was in something of a financial strain, and to help themselves out, they would lease the movie and television rights to their characters to whoever had cash on hand right at that moment (because $100 in your pocket is better than $10,000 in pledged money), this resulted in some tough times for the film adventures of the Marvel characters; Captain America and Punisher got direct to video adventures, the Fantastic Four film never saw the light of day, and Nick Fury and Generation X (X-Men spin off) were optioned for series by FOX. Neither one got past the pilot/TV movie stage. That said, of the pre-2000 Marvel film adaptations, Nick Fury is arguably among the best. One can never underestimate the power of the Hoff, and who could care about anything else? The plot, action, and special effects are above average for FOX TV movie, but it's not like they were out to get any Oscars or anything. Once could watch far worse, like Superman Returns.
