Not As Good As I Remember, But Still……….
BLIND FURY is one of those guilty pleasure films. The late Chicago film critic Gene Siskel cited it as such during a broadcast of the show he co-hosted with Roger Ebert several years ago. It is not a great film, but has real moments of warmth and humor that are hard to ignore. It’s difficult to explain, but what could have been just another vapid action film, is fleshed out by good performances, a self effacing sense of humor, and solid direction.
During the opening credits, we meet Nick Parker (Rutger Hauer). Having been blinded during a firefight in Viet Nam, he is taken in by a local hamlet and nursed back to health. The villagers also teach Nick the art of the sword, we get several scenes of his progress in which he becomes a master. Jump ahead twenty years, as Nick wanders down a country road, walking stick in hand. He is on his way to visit an old friend from the war. After a silly scene involving switched hot sauce, Nick arrives to find that his friend, Frank Devereaux (Terry O’Quinn) does not live there anymore, having left for Reno. Well, Nick meets Frank’s wife and son Billy (Brandon Call). Enter Slag (the Randall ‘Tex’ Cobb), who has come to kidnap Frank’s son, to force Frank into making designer drugs, so that an evil Reno casino owner can pay off his debts. Anyway, after a especially violent debacle, Nick is sworn to protect Billy, and off they go to Reno to rescue Frank.
Admittedly, BLIND FURY is plot heavy, and a lesser film would have sunk under the weight. But the film never gets overly involved with the story, never really takes it to seriously. This is director Phillip Noyce’s follow up to DEAD CALM, a tense thriller that put him on the map (he would go on to helm PATRIOT GAMES, SLIVER, THE SAINT). It is a campy ode to samurai pictures and westerns, war movies and ninja chop-em-ups. Noyce sets the right tone and keeps the action moving. Observe the scene, near the end of the film: there is a tense moment when Billy throws a sword to Nick. The sword sails in the air, in slow motion, the music builds and the sword slips right through Nick’s hands. It is a wonderfully funny moment.
Another important aspect is the character of Nick Parker. As played by Rutger Hauer, Nick is a simple man, not a super hero. He reacts through instinct to the situations he finds himself in, and uses mostly evasive techniques (similar to Jackie Chan), to defend himself. Hauer does a good job blending the realities of blindness with the Hollywood clichés, which makes scenes in which he drives down one-way streets, and the like, very entertaining. The film makers also keep the violence in a backlit, comic book style, never becoming overtly graphic (the antithesis of something like KILL BILL, where the characters dance through geysers of arterial spray). BLIND FURY is an enigma, it is not wacky enough to be considered cult, it does not deal with important subject matter, yet it is still somehow affecting. It will be cast into the discount bins at your local mall, left to languish in obscurity. But for those who will give it a chance, you may be surprised by this standard action fare raised to a higher level by a talented cast and crew. 8/10.
Classic action film from Rutger Hauer dfferent than “First Blood” but a bad-ass 80’s action movie
Before I even heard about “The Hitcher”, “Blade Runner”, Wanted: Dead or Alive, “The Blood of Heroes” and “Wedlock” I saw Blind Fury which was my first Rutger Hauer movie. This was my first movie I saw from the actor Rutger Hauer. The actor died 10 days ago July 19, 2019 at age 75 R.I.P. I really miss you I grew up wtaching movies from you. So this review is going to be dedicted to a legendary actor Rutger Hauer that I love. Patrick Swayze, Paul Walker and Rutger Hauer were my idols I grew up with these guys so yea it is my passion to write reviews about actors and their movies I like. Blind Fury is my second favorite film from Rutger Hauer the first one will be “The Hitcher”.
Blind Fury is a different action movie than “First Blood” Rutger Hauer plays Nick Parker a Vietnam Vet who was blinded in Vietnam War but after 20 years later he come back to Miami to visit his Vietnam Vet war buddy just like in “First Blood”. A group of assassins storm in to Parker’s buddy’s house and kill Frank Devereaux’s ex wife but they miss Nick Parker who is an excellent swordsman and kills 2 assassins, but wounds one. He promise Lynn Devereaux (Meg Foster) that he will protect her son Billy at all cost (Brandon Call) so he takes him to Reno, Las Vegas to meet his father, while on the run, a group of mercenaries are after them. An action classic bad-ass movie one of Rutger hauer’s best movies, great excellent performence by Rutger Hauer.
I love Rutger Hauer’s character Nick Parker a Vietnam Vet and an expert swordsman diffrent than my action hero John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone). Yes I love Rutger’s character Nick Randall from Wanted: Dead or Alive and I love him in this movie. I love him as John Ryder in The Hitcher. Blind Fury, Wanted: Dead or Alive and The Hitcher does not get a proper Blu-ray and it is also not talk about it that much today. To me this is a an action classic.
Good story, it has humor, non stop action, great sword fights. Excellent 80’s action movie, they don’t make like this anymore.
I like the cast which they all do a great job: Nick Cassavetes and Rick Overton who both playes two cowboy brothers Lyle and Tector Pike who are after Nick and Billy. You have Randall ‘Tex’ Cobb from Uncommon Valor and he made a countless movies, jhe is excellent as the bad guy.. I love Randall ‘Tex’ Cobb’s character Slag he is an assassin with a shotgun Smith & Wesson 3000. Or with a hand gun Desert Eagle MK firing on Nick. I love the cornfield sequence a group of mercenaries try to kill Nick but he kills them with his sword. He stabas to pices Slag but it turns out he is alive he wears a bulletproof vest. I love the sword fight in mountain penthous in which Nick slice all MacCready’s men. We have Sho Kosugi in this movie I love the sword fight on the end between Sho Kosugi and Rutger Hauer – excellent choreographed sword fight. Excellent performence from Lisa Blount as Annie Winchester she was also in Prince of Darkness.Great performence from Noble Willingham as the bad guy Claude MacCready. 2 years laster he played another bad guy Sheldon Marcone in Tony Scott’s The Last Boy Scout. Noble Willingham was also in Walker, Texas Ranger as C.D. Parker.
Great action sequences, Great directon by Philip Noyce who directed excellent thsi action movie. I love the music score and the humor, I am glad the movie is not dark. In my view it is an action classic R.I.P. Rutger Hauer, Noble Willingham and Lisa Blount you are all missed. I really miss those actors so much I grew up watching them on big screen. “Blind Fury” is a good bad-ass action movie dosen’t deserve the hate, but deserves a cult status.
