Blind Fury (1989)

Free Great Movies Review

  •  (3.5 out of 5 stars)

Blind Fury is well done considering how absurd the premise is. Rutger Hauer is basically Zatoichi, the Blind Swordsman, but it's set in the action world of 80s America. Rutger plays a blinded Vietnam Vet who takes a kid cross country to Reno, Nevada to reunite with his missing dad. The dad is an old Vietnam buddy played by "The Stepfather" himself, Terry O'Quinn. Director Phillip Noyce has major hurdles to jump over to make a blind samurai swordsman fight off a gang of bad guys armed with machine guns. It's not ever believable, but it's often hilarious, and a wise, blind Rutger Hauer is a joy to watch. Kudos to Noyce for trying, but a blind blademaster works much better in 19th century Japan.
