Format: DVD
This DVD combining 1989's "Blind Fury" and 1996's "Omega Doom" is a great value for your entertainment dollar. Two adventure tales that take differing paths. Using Lake Tahoe's gorgeous Squaw Valley Resort (home of the 1960 winter olympics) and Reno as the backdrop for most of the scenes, "Blind Fury" is the more typical approach with lots of location changes and several fight scenes. It has a quick pace, playing a blind character shows how good Rutger Hauer can be as an actor. Early 80s heavyweight boxing contender Tex Cobb is well cast as a bad guy. No plot surprises, just sit back and enjoy the action.
"Omega Doom" is a much more intellectual effort, a minimalist tale with very few locations and somewhat haunting background music. Rutger playing a robot reminds one of his superb robotic performance in "Blade Runner." "Omega Doom" is a mystery/sci-fi flick that has Hitchcock-like suspense, those looking for the special effects-driven movies (shootouts,car crashes etc.) typical since the mid-80s will likely be bored. If you like the first "Salem's Lot" (with David Soul) and its gradual buildup of suspense, you will likely really enjoy "Omega Doom."
This DVD combo is a solid value.

You get two movies, and had I bought either one by itself I would have been quite disappointed...especially with the first movie I watched..."Blind Fury". I liked Houer in Blade Runner and Odessa files and others so when I saw this twin movie Rutger Hauer pack I grabbed it.
The first movie had somewhat lame dialogue, was overly acted, or under tell me. the kid was especially annoying, thus his transformation was particularly hard to believe and the kids acting was pretty unimpressive...maybe that was him, maybe the directing, maybe the story. The whole movie seemed based on the formula of merging other successful movie ideas in the hope of making another hit. It has a touch of star wars "Luke feel the force" and perhaps some Karate Kid or the 70's series KUNG Fu, "Snatch the pebble from my hand grasshopper" and a bit of Clint Eastwood...go ahead and make my day and it even had this sort of the movie "Shane" swipe thrown in as well None of which were very well pulled off or particularly believable. OK sure run with it. The movie might have had better dialogue, or writing so there were many aspects pulling this down. This story thus is more famous movies and Frankensteining them together hoping to make a hit assuming the element were the ingredients of the hits in the first place. The story really wasn't bad and had potential, but the choice of kid and even Hauers acting were below par, and the story wasn't particularly well told either....coming off campy or too trite. It was disappointing, but not an especially disastrous movie...just sort of average. I'd give it 2 1/2 stars

the other movie was called Omega Doom...somewhat of a dated sort of title, and once again it had potential...but it never really quite reached it.

I always enjoy watching a movie with Rutger Hauer in the cast. He is a good, sometimes great, actor who often appears in low-grade junk. Moviegoers know him from such stand out films as "Blade Runner" and "The Hitcher," but he is quite capable of turning in excellent performances in movies that, for all intensive purposes, reek. Some movie fans would probably castigate Hauer more than I would for making so many B films, and they would be right to some extent, but at least when this actor shows up in schlock you know you will see something interesting. If you have any doubt as to Hauer's acting skills, look no further than an obscure little film made a few years ago called "Fatherland." There is a scene in that movie where Hauer's character tells his son a story about a watchmaker that comprises one of the most powerful moments I have ever seen in a film. My admiration for this wonderful actor prompted me to recently view this Rutger Hauer double feature DVD. The two films on the disc are 1989's "Blind Fury" and 1995's "Omega Doom."
"Blind Fury" is the more recognizable of the two films. Hauer plays Nick Parker, a recently returned Vietnam veteran who went blind due to a combat injury. Afterwards, Parker spent years living in a Vietnamese village learning how to cope with his disability. Several of the men in the settlement taught Parker how to use a sword by relying on his sense of hearing, and through this training the former soldier knows how to get around quite well in the world. Parker's first goal on returning to the United States is to visit his old war buddy Frank Devereaux, a man supposedly living in Florida with his wife and young son.

While "Blind Fury" is certainly a good movie, if you're looking for something in the "kick butt" genre, it drags a little, attempting to rely too much on "charming" interaction between Hauer and his bratty costar than the action. Hauer should have been allowed more action scenes, and given more comedic lines. The young boy character is too much of a brat, and though I'm sure they were attempting to make him "impish", he's more simply foul and annoying. The film's a good one for a lazy summer afternoon when nothing else is on.
"Omega Doom", on the other hand, is probably better for a cold, rainy day when you're tired of your other DVDs. It's almost painfully low-budget, and considering the silliness that takes place in it, it could be great. Unfortunately, the silliness comes off as mostly unintentional, and the film seems to take itself almost deadly serious, to the point where something that could have been a huge laugh merely becomes vaguely discomfiting because it's creepy, but not really enjoyable-creepy a la Return of the Living Dead.
I'd say this two-pack is worth it, especially if you buy a used copy for less than the regular price. Just don't expect these to be anything other than "slow programming day on the minidish" features.
