Movie Info

Based on the popular Marvel Comics franchise, the made-for-TV Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD stars David Hasselhoff in the title role. Having retired from active duty upon the end of the Cold War, war veteran and secret agent Col. Nick Fury squirrels himself away in his Yukon retreat. Meanwhile, enemy organization Hydra is taken over by the progeny of Fury's perennial enemy, ex-Nazi Baron Von Stucker. Under the leadership of Von Stucker's daughter, "Lady Viper" (Sandra Hess), the bad guys have gotten their mitts on a deadly virus, and intend to destroy America within 48 hours. Summoned from his hideaway by his old bosses at SHIELD, Nick Fury quickly reunites his familiar band of heroes -- the Contessa (Lisa Rinna), Dum-Dum (Garry Chalk), Gabriel (Ron Canada), et al. -- along with a newcomer to the ranks, Britisher Alexander Goodwin (Neil Roberts). Clearly the pilot for a proposed TV series, Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD never quite makes up its mind to be taken seriously or to be enjoyed as high camp. The film was first shown over the Fox network on May 26, 1998.

    The Hoff stars as Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD in this amazingly awful piece of garbage. The plot is ludicrous and the actors chew up the scenery. The sets and costumes look dirt cheap, and the directing is boring and one-dimensional. One of the most embarrassing things to ever come out of Marvel, Nick Fury: Agent of SHIELD is everything that is wrong with low budget sci-fi.

    Cheap 90s knock off, Captain america and Fantastic four got the same treatment, Hasselhoff is a terrible Fury, and this is a typical 90s straight to video effort, bad in many ways, there really isnt much going for it apart from laughable lines. Avengers 2012 coming up, and possible Nick fury films. so really no need to see this bad film.

    It was only ten years ago that Marvel were licensing characters out for poor made for TV movies. Written by David S. Goyer (writer of Batman Begins) you may be expecting a lot but just don't. Hasselhoff is surprisingly well suited for the role and is surrounded by hot women which makes this an easy watch. Similar to the old TV Hulk movies, but since this was 1998 it's pretty unforgivable. Usual terrorist story with bombs and fights and races against time.
