Tonight’s Night Thread is dedicated to the movie Blind Fury starring Rutger Hauer.
“He may be blind, but Nick Parker (Rutger Hauer) has a way with a sword. The Vietnam vet pays a visit to an old war buddy, Frank Deveraux (Terrance O’Quinn), only to discover that his friend is in deep trouble. Gangsters have killed Frank’s wife (Meg Foster) and are holding him hostage in Reno, Nev. Making a narrow escape with Frank’s young son (Brandon Call), Nick heads across the country to even the score. Needless to say, his opponents underestimate him — and his sword skills”
This was another one of those movies on cable I watched when I was young and impressionable.
Randall “Tex” Cobb is the main henchmen in this movie and he gives Nick a run for his money time and again.
Rutger Hauer could have played Stick, Matt Murdock’s blind mentor, back in the day if Daredevil was made in the early 1990s.
This definitely could have served as a prequel to A Man Without Fear cinematic showcase.
Let us remember Mr. Hauer this Friday night.
Pop this movie in the DVD player with Hobo With A Shotgun for a double dose of deadly action!
