Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. (1998): This is
the best thing David Hasselhoff has ever done! I like "Knight
Rider" and some of his movies, but Nick Fury is definitely the best
character he's ever played. He's a lot funnier, for one
thing. Plus, he isn't so much of a pretty-boy in this one.
He's got an eye patch, beard stubble, and is generally moody.
Nick Fury is more like a real guy. And like heroes of most
cinema, he has to put up with crap from his boss. He has a lot of
amusing lines, but the funniest is when he tells his boss, "Guys like
you tend to cling to the bowl no matter how many times you
flush.". Classic. Sandra Hess, who plays Viper, is another
great player in this film. She plays the crazy German persona to
the hilt...way out there! There are a few things
that come off kind of hokey, but you have to take into account that
this is a superhero movie. Films about comic book heroes are
usually kind of unbelievable in places because it's fantasy. But
I enjoy this show in its entirety! Nick Fury is the government
agent equivalent of Dirty Harry!
