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 Reno 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>

"Fury"-ous fun....
14 September 1999 | by Mister-6See all my reviews

First, Hauer played Roy Batty in "Blade Runner", now he plays someone blind as a "bat". Get it?

Okay, sorry. The movie, right....

"Blind Fury" has gone and done it; it's the only movie I have ever seen about a blind swordsman with an Anglo hero that didn't need dubbed in America. It's in a class by itself.

And so is Hauer; he really puts his all in this part and he does it effectively. He wields a mean sword and actually is convincing as a blind man. Top that, Steven Seagal!

And there are action scenes in this film that will make your jaw drop. Really. Mine did, more than once. You won't believe the goings-on herein.

Not only does Hauer do well, but so does O'Quinn, Willingham, Blount, Foster, Overton (a great dimwit baddie if ever there was one) and even Cobb makes good. Who would have thought? Kosugi's part is small but he makes the most of it.

Like I said, the action is the key here and if you like a lot of action, this one will leave you "Blind"-sided.

Though for the sake of PC, maybe they should rename this "Visually-Impaired Fury"?

Just wondering.

Eight stars.
