Takes itself just a bit too seriously
Remo Williams is a very, very blatant attempt to cash in on two 80's movie sensations: James Bond and Indiana Jones, with some Karate Kid thrown in for good measure. In particular, "Remo's Theme" sounds so ripped off from Indy that I actually laughed out loud when it first played.

This film was obviously intended to be the first of a series, as evidenced by the title, but how anyone could think this would become a classic is beyond me, as every single element of the plot and every character is a VERY blatant ripoff of something or other.

What's left for this movie to be is just a lighthearted uncomplex action flick, and while it succeeds at times (mostly in the training sequences), it's mostly way too big on building up Remo into some sort of folk hero on the level of 007 or the aforementioned Indiana Jones. And a folk hero he is NOT. The plot is pretty damn silly and doesn't have the "cool" factor of any of the Indiana Jones films, and all too much time is spent on it. The one liners, except the ones from Remo's hilarious, albeit cliché, instructor, mostly fall flat. ("What've you got there?" "Oh, just a small matter... OF NATIONAL SECURITY!")

In the end, it's way too corny to be a classic, and takes itself way too seriously for me to have been able to watch it with my brain turned off and just chuckle at it, I gave it a 4 out of 10, 2 of that just for the great character of his soap-opera watching korean martial arts instructor.

funny and interesting even now
If you're looking for great special effects, you won't like it. It's an 80's movie, and has a lot of 80's style action and dialog. However, it's still a fantastic movie. For the younger audience, it's a great action flick. For the older audience, the character of Chiun (played by Joel Grey) is absolutely hilarious. Apparently, Joel Grey doesn't just sing and dance - he does comedy too, and does it well. There are more great Chiun quotes in this movie than in the rest of the movies from the 80's combined! So, if you like great one-liners and half-comedy, half-action (martial-arts style) movies, this is an absolute must see! I gave it 10 stars since it's a classic!

Very entertaining, yet often misunderstood.
This movie inspires different reactions from people, depending on the expectations they bring to their first viewing. It's a semi-serious, semi-spoof Action/Comedy/Crime/Thriller/Martial Arts movie that doesn't fit neatly into any category. It is tremendously entertaining, as long as you aren't expecting something totally serious or totally comical. This movie is often misunderstood, and that, coupled with its somewhat-lower-than-average-budget look, may explain why there was no sequel to the movie, which was subtitled in the US "The Adventure Begins." It wasn't quite big-budget enough to satisfy people wanting to see a competitor for James Bond, and it wasn't quite like any other movie enough for people to "get it" right off. Taken at face value as an action movie, therefore, Remo Williams isn't all that noteworthy. However, viewed as an entertaining mixture of action and fun, the movie delivers quite well.

Fred Ward does a fine job as Remo, especially in his scenes with Chiun, his Shinanju master played fantastically by Joel Grey. Some have argued that Ward was too old for the role, which would be debatable even if this were a straight-out action movie; given its true nature, Ward was an excellent choice, and the dynamic between him and Grey makes for some of the most entertaining sequences in the movie.

Joel Grey's Asian "sensei" character stereotype can be forgiven in the context of the semi-spoof, tongue-in-cheek nature of the movie. Chiun's humor shines through his sarcastic commentary about America and Remo; the success of the humor relies on the Korean Shinanju master's strength and ability. Chiun is the most powerful, competent, intelligent, and witty character in the movie. There is also the pleasant story line of Chiun passing on to Remo the legacy of his Shinanju wisdom and knowledge... and wit.

People have also criticized Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager) for her performance of Major Rayner Fleming. Overall, her performance is very good, and appropriate for the character, especially before her character meets Remo at Mount Promise. I am still somewhat disappointed, however, to see Major Fleming change from a competent military career-woman into a bewildered character smitten by Remo and Chiun and carried along in their wake. In the role of the army major, Fleming is competent, witty, and believable: an appropriate portrayal of a mid-1980's woman military officer. The directors could have let the character carry that competence through to the end of the movie.

The movie does have some great action sequences, especially the chase around the scaffolding surrounding the Statue of Liberty (remember when they were remodeling it, back in the 80's?), and it is very funny in many places. (See the "memorable quotes" page.) If you watch the movie expecting to have fun and to be entertained, if you suspend your disbelief just a little and don't take it too seriously, you will really enjoy it. It has just enough action, just enough "buddy movie" dynamic, just enough tongue-in-cheek humor, just enough spoof, just enough comic-book type fantasy elements, and just enough enigmatic and amusing martial arts to make it terrifically entertaining. Watch it with your friends on a lazy Saturday afternoon, have some laughs, and be entertained. You'll be glad you did.

Excellent introduction to the books,highly recommended
Like any book turned into a film,this does not do the books credit. That said,it is very faithful to both the repartee between the master and student as well as the excitement and skills obtained during training by Remo. Sure its fictional,a lot of the moves taught are impossible,but a lot are also plausible, and that along with the humorous banter between master and student as the wisdom and skills are passed on to the latter are what made me so addicted to Remo in book form, and what also makes this film so much fun to watch.

Being addicted to the books before the film was made, usually a hindrance to enjoying the film when made as gets your hopes up too high, did not deter me from enjoying Fred Wards performance as the Destroyer to be, and i find it almost unfathomable that a follow up film never became a reality-but i will live in hope of it happening, and if they made another film half as close as this one was to the books i will die happy i will die happy.

Fred Ward wakes up in hospital with a new identity (Remo Williams) after his staged death and goes on to train to become a stealth assassin!
A classic American '80's action film that plays like an adult version of The Karate Kid; Remo Williams is a hybrid genre of classic American Martial Arts/Spy Thriller; more well crafted and enjoyable than Black Eagle or any other rare kind of that era.

It's an action film that counts on few bare necessities and boasts more choreographed stunts than it does special effects. Majorly, it provides us with a well crafted human drama that is perfectly acted out between the actors and boasts an original sense of humour that surpassed The Karate Kid's "Master and Student" comedy formula, simply because it's more mature than Karate Kid.

Some pass the film off as far-fetched but with hair-raising stunts being performed on top of towering fairground rides and the Statue of Liberty, who cares? What about the dogs walking the tightrope during the attempted sabotage or Chiun walking on water? It's just so much fun to watch! I still wish I could kill a man with my fingers after watching that film, it'd shorten the queue at KFC but I'll happily settle for my copy of this amazing film!

You have to run very fast!
I´m shocked at the low rating of this movie. It is obviously a brilliant movie far better than the James Bond films. FAR FAR better.

It is just so funny and brilliant - and life-confirming. I loved it. Love it! Love it! Love it! You have to run very fast!

It Is Called Fast Food Because It Speeds Them On The Way To Their Graves
Spoilers Ahead:

For people under forty, this is the best action movie you have never seen. The movie is stolen, completely, by Joel Grey as Chiun. He has open contempt for everyone who is not Korean yet has a hilarious affinity for our dreadful American soap operas. The movie works because the team of Ward / Grey works so well. It is not a stereotype for Grey is almost a superhuman figure; he possesses mystical powers of control and attack. A few taps on a woman's wrist is the secret that Masters and Johnson (sex researchers) needed to discover. The dodging of bullets, done before the Matrix used CGI, is done very well. The movie has great music and an excellent supporting cast with Cioffi doing the villain he was born to play. Wilfred Brimley turns in his usual excellent reading. I loved Cioffi but the villain is stolen from him by dental work boy who is one sadistic piece of work. It features breathtaking stunts, near the end, with Ward dangling from suspended logs high in the air. Be warned, the movie is firmly tongue in cheek, if you go into this expecting realistic action you will hate the movie. This was why, though a modest success, it alienated some viewers with its intense violence paired with a campy tone. Chiun's dialog is the star of the movie as he pours scathing contempt on pretty much everyone and everything about him. My favorite line is where he takes the can of raviolis disdainfully out of the bag Remo tried to smuggle it in with.

"It would be better for you to eat this can than what is inside of it." The funniest scene is where poor Remo thinks he is going to use brute force on Chiun. Suffice to say, it doesn't go well. By the end of the scene, Remo has destroyed the entire room without even brushing against Chiun. What makes it a keeper is that Grey uses amazing flexibility to avoid bull rushes and bullets. Yes, I know detractors, that is what I meant by campy. The movie, like Bay's The Rock, laughs at itself often. Go into the movie expecting an action filled, well written, violent parody of Bond while not devolving down to the disastrous mockery of Top Secret. It is not for children featuring some serious violence even this far back in time. Remo's training, which could have been so boring, is carried by Grey's mockery and scorn he unleashes on this 'hamburger eating fool who moves like a pregnant Yak." Even during the training, impossible stunts like dangling from the side of a Ferris wheel car will sustain your interest. The other star is the pacing, this is one of the fastest moving movies of its genre. It opens with a well done fight between Ward and two street toughs that features a great use of slamming doors on your opponents. The fight can be summed up in one word: Improvisation.

The movie failed from spawning the series that was intended because pure action fans were annoyed at the campy tone. Some Asians found Chiun to be racist, please, he is the best part of the movie. Grey deserved an Oscar for his transformative performance with his deadpan delivery. Again, he is almost a demigod here. He is last shown running across water, hardly an unflattering delineation. Kate Mulgrew may annoy you here; she was quite hot but she has always been a dreadful actress. I always wish they had selected Karen Allen instead. The movie starts intense, never catches its breath but grows quite dark near the ending. Remo discovers that, if he fails on his mission, his teacher has orders to kill him. This adds needed suspense and depth to the final mission. I can tell you this, if you are ever trapped in a glass room with someone with a diamond filling, the movie shows you a handy skill to use to escape. Recently released, finally, on Blu Ray, it is the best action movie you have never seen. I always regretted that, like Buckaroo Banzai, it never produced a series of these movies. You will laugh as much as be interested in the fast moving, exciting action. A Buried Treasure. Q.E.D.

From the moment the music starts...
...that action-oriented Craig Safan piece, you know you're in for something pretty good. The movie keeps going at a brisk pace: Remo is "killed" in the first few minutes. The movie never lets up from there. There's not much of a plot, and the "love interest" is kept to a minimum (thank goodness - see my comments on Mulgrew below)

For those seeking action, there isn't a lot. There are a few nice set-pieces, including the (reconstructed) Statue of Liberty sequence. Mostly, the movie is a weird buddy picture, with Joel Grey giving a rather odd performance, given his Hollywood stature, as an Asian/Oriental stereotype. Still, there are some oddly endearing moments as the two become attached. The best parts (see Quotes) is their back-and-forth banter.

The only downpoints are a pre-Voyager Kate Mulgrew who never fails to be shrill (presumably she's supposed to be the "love interest" but this never gets established), Wilford Brimley's miscasting (as an emotionless government spook?? I don't think so - back to Quaker Oats with ye!), and the goofy dog sequence which is cute but ultimately you're left wondering what the heck this has to do with anything.

It's interesting to compare the movie (if you can) to the TV pilot (which never went to series) that was briefly aired on ABC. That featured Jeffrey Meeks (Raven, Mortal Kombat) as Remo and Roddy McDowell as Chiun. I've got to say, though, that a barely-recognizable Grey is the clear winner, no matter how oddball (and potentially offensive to some *yawn*) the casting.

Frustrating
This is half of a great action movie. What spoils it from reaching its full potential is:

(1) The movie was obviously done on a lower than average budget, leading to some scenes looking cheap.

(2) Not enough action

(3) Action scenes that there are are only passable.

Still, I'm sort of sorry they didn't continue this intended series.

Tongue in cheek all the way..
This is really a parody on all those karate films where the old martial arts master takes a young novice under his wing you've seen it a hundred times. Remo takes a great spin on it by having its tongue so firmly in its cheek.

Well worth a look.
