"Go to hell"!
on 14 September 2017
The Fury can easily be labeled in five different genres as it switches from thriller, mystery, horror, supernatural and action. Kirk Douglas stars as a special agent who is searching for his child who holds special telekinesis powers but has been kidnapped by Ben Childress played by John Cassavetes who Douglas thought was his friend. His search takes him from the middle east to Chicago.
While Douglas is looking for his son the PSI a secret service within the CIA are trying to kill him and prevent their reconciliation. Meanwhile there is a young woman Gillian played by Amy Irving who has the same telekinetic abilities and Douglas' son. Will she be able to help before it's too late?
The role demands that Douglas is very energetic here, just check out some of those moves and this, at least for the first half is a very fast paced movie from director Brian De Palma who brings back Irving after her starring role in CARRIE. Well directed with only some lulls in the second half of the movie. The slow motion scene is nothing short of brilliant, this is essentially a movie about loss and an entertaining one at that. One does suspect that Stephen King's FIRESTARTER took some inspiration from this plot.
Small cameo appearance from a very young Daryl Hannah as schoolgirl and John Belushi is here as an extra.
