Movie Info

Rutger Hauer plays a blinded Vietnam vet who also happens to be an expert swordsman. Twenty years after the war, Hauer finds himself waist-deep in gangsters when he tries to help the son (Brandon Call) of an old army buddy. Along the way, he reforms an ex-comrade in arms (Terrance O'Quinn) who was responsible for the accident that blinded him. Based on a series of Japanese films about a blind samurai (released under the blanket title of Zatoichi).

  • Stranger danger! Just because Rutger Hauer says he's blind doesn't mean you should let him put his paws all over your annoying kid's face.

  • A satisfying action vehicle for Hauer...

    Aug 22, 2012 | Full Review…
  • the unacknowledged adaptation of the Zato Ichi films, which features Rutger Hauer as a blind swordsman who wanders the roads of America, helps reunite a small boy with his father, and wastes more mob henchman than you can shake a white cane at.

    Jun 15, 2007 | Rating: 3/5
  • One of Hauer's best flicks

    May 6, 2005 | Rating: 3/5
  • Cool fight scenes that play up the blind aspect. Not much of a story, but a fun action movie.

    Jul 14, 2003 | Rating: 3/5
  • Solid B-level actioner with lots of mayhem and the great Rutger Hauer.

    Mediocre cliche classic

    Refashioning Zatoichi into a zany, Americanized B-movie turns out to be a rollickingly fun idea. Rutger Hauer, the Dutch automaton, is a Vietnam veteran who lost his sight during the war and was trained by villagers on the art of being a samurai warrior. The swordplay is played for flippant silliness in a bar where Hauer accidentally bludgeons thugs with his cane but a climactic duel with an Asian swordsman is extremely fast-paced and exhilarating. Cheesy moments are inherent in such high-concept material but Hauer is sardonic ("I also do circumcision") and briskly strolls through the scant plot.

    Cheesy, corny and some other food stuffy 80's comedy about a blind martial arts expert trying to return the son of his army buddy to his gambling dad, except the loan sharks keep getting in his way. Between Rutger Hauer and his wooden cane sword, I'd give best actor Oscar to the cane.

    The definition of a 90s action movie, so bizarre-yet-cool. Rutger Hauer essentially plays Daredevil, too bad this wasn't Daredevil because he would've made it amazing. This has some negative aspects, like an annoying kid and too many cheesy antics. However, the good out ways the bad. At the end of it all, it's fun, brutal and stylish. The level of Hauer Power is at an all time high and if this was a judge of his acting it would surely get infinite stars.
