"Split Second" - Staring Rutger. Hauer and Kim. Cattrall. A post-apocalyptic London, flooded by global-warming, is terrorized by an murderous, aquatic creature.
"Blade Runner" - Starring Rutger Hauer. A classic Science Fiction where cyborgs and humans have fights and love affairs. Good casting , music and film work. A must see.
The line Outside of acting as an environmentalist, he fought for the release of Greenpeace's co-founder, Paul Watson, who was convicted in 1994 for sinking an illegal Norwegian whaling vessel is problematic on several counts:
- The page on Paul Watson does not match this claim
- The allegation illegal in relations to Norwegian whaling is not appropriate either. A convention is not a law, nor is it ratified by the Norwegian government.
Apparently no one remembers Hauer in Merlin, staring alongside of Sam Neill?
"A Breed Apart" is mentioned on the Kathleen Turner page, but not the Rutger Hauer page. Dessydes

Where is the reference that the whaling boat was illegal? Norway has not signed any whaling treaties as far as I know. The sinking however was a criminal act, obviously.
"Hauer is a dedicated environmentalist. He fought for the release of Greenpeace's co-founder, Paul Watson, who was convicted in 1994 for sinking an illegal Norwegian whaling vessel."
I think we need a either a reference or a change of this line.
I'll not put this on the main page cos I'm hazy about dates, but Rutger's other early film were Survival Run in 1976 where he played a soldier and Cold Blood in 1978 which was badly dubbed in English. No one ever seems to remeber these. Also I'm pretty sure he used to be married to a woman called Sene or Seni in the late 80s / early 90s.
The book he wrote in 2007 All Those Moments: Stories of Heroes, Villains, Replicants, and Blade Runners says that he needs to keep an American base to keep his green card. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:44, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
Some websites say that Hauer can speak Frisian fluently or even list him as ethnically Frisian (list of famous Frisians, etc.) is this a case? If so it is certainly notable. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 16:34, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
"Hauer was born in Breukelen, The Netherlands, the town lending its name to New York City's Borough Brooklyn."
Sorry, this is just too silly and too US-centric to pass without comment. The phenomenon is way too common for it to be noted every time a town is merely mentioned in an article about something else; and this factoid has no relevance to the Hauer bio as outlined here. By all means the namesake thing should be mentioned in the substantive articles on Breukelen and the various Brooklyns, definitely, but it is just gratuitous here. Every little burgh in Europe has given its name to some place in the Americas, Africa, Oceania, etc - there would be no end to it if we followed this practice comprehensively. I love Brooklyn NY as much as the next chap but there is no basis for giving it a cameo here (and not, say, Brooklyn, Pretoria). Thoughts? I will delete the offending fragment if there are no objections. Deoxyribonucleic acid trip (talk) 01:37, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
... or maybe we could go the other way: "Hauer was born in Breukelen, The Netherlands, the town lending its name to New York City's Borough Brooklyn. His parents were drama teachers Arend and Teunke. Rutger grew up in Amsterdam, which had also lent its name to the original European denomination of the settlement that became New York City, New Amsterdam, before it was changed to New York, after York in England."
