Any more details that may help identify this movie? –  Napoleon Wilson Oct 17 '13 at 13:24
Would agree with Christian Rau ... do you remember if this is an oriental (or oriental actors) style movie? You have it as action, would you also consider it sci-fi or fantasy? Or more of a Barbarian style? Does the action happen in the past or future? Any notable actors? Anything to flesh out the question will help tremendously. –  Paulster2 Oct 17 '13 at 14:09
@Paulster2 "Or more of a Barbarian style?" - How could I forget Conan! Yet I fear three vague answers might really be overkill. I guess we see the problem with this question. –  Napoleon Wilson Oct 17 '13 at 14:13
@ChristianRau ... yes, more information! More than willing to provide answers, that's for sure. –  Paulster2 Oct 17 '13 at 14:19

While the question is extremely lacking in details, it reminds me of the 1992 cult classic Army of Darkness, where I remember the protagonist to have had an iron gauntlet instead of a hand (and being set in the, more or less, middle ages, has him carry a sword now and then, too):

In this sequel to the Evil Dead films, a discount-store employee ("Name's Ash. Housewares.") is time-warped to a medieval castle beset by monstrous forces. Initially mistaken for an enemy, he is soon revealed as the prophecised savior who can quest for the Necronomicon, a book which can dispel the evil. Unfortunately, he screws up the magic words while collecting the tome, and releases an army of skeletons, led by his own Deadite counterpart. What follows is a thrilling, yet tongue-in-cheek battle between Ash's 20th Century tactics and the minions of darkness.

If actually Army of Darkness I think a chainsaw would be more memorable than the hand. I actually seem to remember the movie the OP is asking about, but it's name is not popping into my head. –  Paulster2 Oct 17 '13 at 13:29
I considered at this at first, but dismissed it because the OP describes the glove as "furry" and "black." Neither of which describes Ash's metal hand. –  druciferre Oct 18 '13 at 0:59

You might also be after Masters of the Universe. I don't think it features any kind of special gauntlet/glove, but it is a 1987 Fantasy-Action-Adventure featuring Dolph Lundgren as He-Man (famous for his big, uh, sword) intruding into 80s small town life:

The planet Eternia is in the aftermath of Skeletor's war on Castle Greyskull, which he has won after seizing Greyskull and the surrounding city using the Cosmic Key developed by the Thenorian locksmith Gwildor. The Sorceress is now Skeletor's prisoner and he begins to drain her lifeforce as he waits for the Eternia's moon to align with the Great Eye of the Universe that will bestow god-like powers upon him. Once on Earth, He-Man and company team up with two teenagers as they attempt to find the key and return home. However, the evil Skeletor and his vile minions are soon hot on their trail.
