Blind Fury (1989)
Whenever someone asks for a recommendation for an insane campy ’80s action movie, the answer should always be Blind Fury. Haven’t seen it? Well… the movie stars Rutger Hauer as a Vietnam war vet by the name of Nick Parker who was blinded by a mine in the jungle and was later trained by local villages in the art of the sword. Years later, Nick returns to America to find his old war buddy, Frank Deveraux (Terry O’Quinn), only to learn that he’s missing. When some crooked cops and all around bad dudes come looking for Frank’s kid, Billy (Brandon Call), the blind swordsman saves the boy and starts a ridiculous rescue mission.
This movie is insane. Like actually insane. The late Rutger Hauer is probably best remembered for his scene-stealing performance in Blade Runner, but seriously, Blind Fury is 86 minutes of pure insanity and everyone should stop what they’re doing and watch this hidden gem of a movie.
