This movie is an action adventure film loosely based on one of the films from the Japanese samurai series Zatoichi. It stars Rutger Hauer as a blind Vietnam veteran who learns how to sword fight after being taken in by a small village. After he returns to America he finds himself protecting the son of another soldier who he served with in Vietnam from a gang of violent Reno gangsters.
It’s campy, but totally badass. This is a genre and style of movie I wish could get updated for today.
I mean really, just look at this poster -
