Editorial Reviews

Brace yourself for Nick Fury's action-packed adventure! Baywatch icon David Hasselhoff stars as the hard-boiled, cigar-chomping director of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division), an ultrasecret counterterrorism strike force. Fury is called upon when his latest nemesis, the sexy, sinister Viper hatches a plan to annihilate all of Manhattan. Armed with a stockpile of high-tech weapons, Fury is the city's only hope in the full-length debut of this Marvel Comics hero!

Let's try to remember a time when Marvel wasn't making blockbuster hits with their catalog of characters. Not so long ago we were treated to gems like Captain America and Howard the Duck. Then you have David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. This was a made for TV movie, probably a backdoor pilot for what could have become a TV series. There's a good reason it did not. The plot is pretty standard comic book movie fare, evil organization intends to wipe out Manhattan with poison gas, it's the acting, or rather over-acting of the Hoff that hurts this. It's not helped by Sandra Hess' villain, the awkward action or the script's real lack of peril for the leads. Thankfully, the pacing keeps the film moving and it's engaging enough to keep you entertained. Ultimately, while this is not a successful effort, it's far from the worst entry in the Marvel catalog of films. For a fan of Fury, it's nice to see a live action version that pre-dates Sam Jackson, and to see a helicarrier and L.M.D and all the trappings of S.H.I.E.L.D even on the small screen. For a comic movie collector it's a must have. This wasn't a wide release (Best Buy exclusive) and was hard to come by then, even harder to own now.

Yes, it's cheesy. Yes, all the acting is over-acting. Yes, it doesn't stand up to the current standard of comic movies or the Agents of SHIELD tv show. But come on people, it was the late '90s, what movies weren't like that by comparison? For the review that says they didn't know about the movie until it was on tv.... it was a made for tv movie. It stars David Hasselhoff, who does a good job of portraying the Nick Fury of the comics (seriously, go pick up Strange Tales #135 and tell me he did a bad job). You can't, because the Hoff nailed it.

If you're looking for cinematic perfection, this ain't it sister. If you want a fun romp that stays close to the original source material (from the mid-60s, for all you new-age comic "lovers" who didn't jump on the train until it was "cool" to be into comics) then this movie is worth the time for true fans. It is not worth more than a few bucks out of the bargain bin though.

This is the closets adaptation of a marvel product since the huk conan and dr strange... the best characters to adapt are the ones that are not the ones that paid theb ils betwen jack kirby and stan lee its these type of characters that are good for tv.. Conan Nick fury dr strange, ghost rider which they jacked up in every direction, David Hasselhoff was great as nick fury people talk about his acting but he looks like he read the comic books and even nick fury was too much in those pages any of those pages and any guests appearances he made in the comic books in other heroes books...Remember he plays an old war horse thrown into a directive status and therefore is a nosy secretive character like men in black or mr seven from star trek - james bond... there was a lot of love ion the production and in many of the super hero stuff that comes on tv i found out while the show was on or the commercial just came on and I did not know a thing.. so this is high entertaintment . david haselhoff should have been given the nick fury show with this pilot if that was what it was.. think of all the old actors that could play a cameo appearance thiat did not show up in Knight rider.. thats what these things are about!
the new sheild thing just aint working at all- sharon carter- etc... This is a good show. I would have loved to see david haselhoff in this i would not miss an episode just like I only missed 4 episodes of the flash with john wesley shipp....

I fondly remember reading the Steranko Nick Fury from way back, and he got that version down cold.

I prefer Samuel L. Jackson's "Ultimate Nick Fury ", but it's a completely different incarnation of the MCU, updated for this century.

Compared to the first early Marvel movies,Captain America,The Punisher, and The Fantastic Four(which I did not see but I heard mixed things), Nick Fury was really good. First of all, Hassellhoff actually looks and acts like Nick Fury and the plot was pretty good for its time. Arguably, the villians could have been better, however it was good movie. Look at the horrible Punisher(Ugh!)then look at the Captain America( double ugh!) and you will definitely appreciate Nick Fury.

This is a, relatively, cheaply made overacted 'bad movie' - however it actually attempts to bring the Nick Fury of the 70s and 80s spy-fi comics to life. The Hoff overacts as Fury in a manner that is actually consistent with this era. It is not a 'Good' movie by the conventional standards but as a bit of giggle it is fine. Don't take it too seriously and you might enjoy it. If you like the Matt Salinger or Reb Brown Cpt America movies you should enjoy this.
