5.0 out of 5 stars Great Overall Value; Contrasting Adventure Tales Nov. 10 2002
By A Customer
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must See for Hauer Fans Oct. 22 2003
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.

By Rann
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only For Die-Hard Rutger Hauer Fans Feb. 1 2003
By A Customer
Blind Fury is all right, if you're into formulaic action flicks involving Guns, Car Chases, and, of course, the Token Cute Rebellious Kid Who Eventually Comes Around To Love The Hero. Aside from the two shotgun-toting grandmas, however, the film is pretty forgettable.
And Omega Doom is just utterly dreadful. Dreary sets and monotonous camera work portray a lame, half-assed story about robots taking over the world in nuclear winter and fighting over some lost gun stockpile. Oh, let me amend that -- *robots who drink water and smoke cigars*. The actors either choose to portray a robot by a) staring off blankly into space, b) moving with all the skill and coordination of a landed catfish, or c) acting just like a human being would, trusting in the foley effects crew to add in the Special Robot Sounds (which pretty much just consist of someone running a 9-volt drill). Just about the only saving grace of the movie is seeing that Rutger Hauer can maintiain a form of rugged dignity even when starring in this steaming piece of crap. I really have nothing against horrid movies, but this movie is too drab, dark, bland, boring and dull to even be entertainingly bad. Instead, it's just excruciating.
If you paid more than five bucks for this awful thing, you have my deepest condolances.
