Storyline

Nick Parker was a Vietnam vet who was blinded during the war. He was found by one of the local tribes, who taught him to enhance his remaining senses and to expertly wield a sword. On his return to the United States, he goes to visit an old Army buddy, Frank Devereaux, but discovers that he and his wife are divorced, and Frank no longer lives there. What they don't know is that Devereaux was playing in a crooked casino in Reno and accumulated a large debt. The casino boss is willing to forgive his debt if he does something for him: Devereaux is a chemist, and they want him to make designer drugs. In order to make sure he does it, they try to kidnap his son. But Nick is there, and Nick saves the boy. Thus begins a road trip to Vegas to protect the boy and save his friend, with the boss' henchmen in pursuit. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Goofs

Near the beginning of the movie, when Nick realizes he's totally blind and keeps calling out for his partner, Frank, Nick can be seen sloshing through a trough and reaches his right hand out to grab a tree to steady him. How could he see the tree to grab if he was totally blind? See more »

Wow!
6 April 2001 | by (Stockton-on-Tees, England) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. It's another example of brilliant, under-rated acting by the one and only Rutger Hauer. In a way I feel sorry for Hauer, Like Christopher Lambert, he is a top quality actor but very under-rated.

Anyway, Rutger Hauer stars as a Vietnam War veteran. During battle, he was blinded by a mortar attack. He was then captured by a tribe in Vietnam and trained to master the sword. 20 years later, Hauer is back in the USA and sets out to find his fellow soldier friend, Frank.

The sword which Hauer uses in this movie is so cool. I love the sword fights in this movie.

8/10
