Podcast: Blind Fury (1989)

In honor of the (now not so recently) late legend Rutger Hauer, Your Stupid Minds covers one of our favorite Hauer films. No, not Blade Runner. Come on. You know what kind of podcast this is. It’s 1989’s Blind Fury!

Nick Parker (Hauer) is an American solider in Vietnam blinded by Viet Cong shrapnel. He’s taken in by local villagers and taught the ways of the sword through elaborate bullying and pranks. Years later, he finds himself plopped into southern Florida as a friendly hobo.

He goes to visit his old army buddy Frank (Terry O’Quinn), and instead finds his son Billy (Brandon Call) and soon-to-be-ex-wife Lynn (Meg Foster). The house is invaded by some goons and Nick must bring Billy back to his father and get to the bottom of this attack.

Some Notes:
  • Loosely based on the classic Japanese film and television character Zatoichi.
  • Also featuring Randall 'Tex' Cobb (Raising Arizona), Nick Cassavetes (Face/Off), and Shô Kosugi (Ninja III: The Domination).
