Brilliant actor. Simply no two ways about it. He was a legend, his half IMPROVED tears in the rain moment in Blade Runner will forever go down as one of the most beautiful and moving speeches in film history.
Such an amazing presence. It’s a great loss to the film industry that such a powerful talent never got the career he deserved. But his parts in The Hitcher, Blade Runner and Ladyhawk will always be a highlight and those films wouldn’t be what they are without him. They were his films even if he may not have been the star— and that’s saying a lot when he can steal the spotlight from Michelle Pfeiffer at her prime.
Loved Rutger Hauer movies.
He was in some great action movies from the action movie decade that was the '80's.
From Nighthawks to Blade Runner to LadyHawke to The Hitcher to Wanted Dead or Alive he was on a roll.
He was right up there with Arnie, Stallone, JCVD, Seagal etc.
