Why didn't they do sequels?
Since I was six years old, this has been one of my favorites. It's taken a
lot of criticism over the years because of the way it develops. Many
complain that it takes too long to get to the adventure that is promised in
the title. Even though it does take a while to get there, it's a lot of
to watch. Like most movies that spawn multiple sequels, this first
installment spends much of the movie explaining Remo's origins. See, he
a cop who apparently died, and was then ressurected and recruited to work
an assassin for the president. He is then sent to training by a little
Asian guy named Chiun. The biggest part of the film is spent on Remo's
training. Oh, and did I mention that it's fun? As improbable as it is,
scenes are a blast. Remo is required to do a number of tasks such as run
along the sides of a skyscraper, climb on the outside of a ferris wheel,
there's a nifty little segment where he dukes it out with a bunch of
construction workers on the top of the Statue of Liberty (!).
Fred Ward is perfect in the title role and Joel Grey nearly steals every
scene as Chiun. His totally unPC one-liners will have you in stitches as
well as his and Remo's constant bickering. Another thing that makes this
movie great is the stunts. There's some pretty amazing stuff here and it
all looks great.
All in all, this was an extremely well made film that has only gotten
with time. Even though it never got the attention it deserved, it still
a strong cult following and the books that it was based on (the Destroyer
series) has over one hundred titles to its credit. This only confuses me
more as to why there were no sequels made.
Highly Reccommended. I give it a 10 all the way..

OK action comedy film
Remo Williams (Fred Ward) is a cop who undergoes a fake death and is
then "volunteered" into some sort of secret agency that claims it's out
to rid the country of the bad guys. Ward is not a handsome leading man;
in fact he looks like Moe Howard of the 3 stooges. But that's OK here
since his part is somewhat clownish anyway. The real star is Joel Gray
as Remo's Korean teacher. A tiny little guy who has nearly superhuman
powers and loves American soap opera. Has a lot of funny lines.
My major complaint is that the show drags in spots. Halfway thru the
movie Remo is chased through the scaffolding surrounding the statue of
liberty. Now that should have been action-packed, but no. It's very
slowly paced and nothing happens and the scene lasts a half hour..
