BLIND FURY (1990) *** ½

Actor Tim (Animal House) Matheson produced this Americanized version of the Japanese Zatoichi, The Blind Swordsman movies.  Rutger (The Hitcher) Hauer is excellent as the blind Nam vet who must protect his scientist buddy (Terry O’Quinn) and his son.  Hauer uses a cane that doubles as a sword to slice and dice his enemies.  Nick Cassevettes and Rick Overton are funny as two henchmen.  The sword fight over a Jacuzzi and the scene in which Hauer dispatches Randall “Tex” Cobb are awesome (the latter scene was later copied in Star Wars: Episode I).  Fast paced, funny, and exciting, this flick is highly recommended. Directed by Phillip (Patriot Games) Noyce.
