An average movie

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Phillip Noyce’s work, I thought I might as well check it out. I didn’t know this before watching this flick but, apparently, the main character was based on Zatoichi, the famous blind Japanese samurai. More than a decade later, the great Takeshi Kitano would make also a really neat movie about ... read more

"Rutger Hauer stars as a blind war vet who gives up the gun and instead, takes up a sword. Now if memory serves me correctly, this movie was based off of a Japanese film about a popular character over there in Japan, called Zatoichi. I think. I'm not sure. I mean, I could probably look it up, but like Blind Fury and Zatoichi, I too am totally blind. And if that makes any of you wonder just how the hell I am able to type these comments, well, let's just say that, I first begin by relying on my he"

“"Not bad for a blind man! But that butter knife ain't gonna stop no bullet!"

For those who enjoy old-school, B-grade action movies, 1989's Blind Fury is a hidden gem that is absolutely worth checking out. The Hollywood debut for Australian director Phillip Noyce (Dead Calm, Patriot Games), this is an American appropriation of the long-running Japanese film series Zatoichi, executed with the same type of cinematic tendencies that we have come to expect from simplistic action pictures. Thus, it's excessively violent, contains a fair few action set-pieces, isn't overly interested in smarts or thematic relevance, and is backed by a cheesy electronica soundtrack.
