Rating: 4/5 -- A terrific piece of escapist entertainment that deserved to be a much bigger hit. Makes you wish there were more Remo Williams movies.

You can get carried along by the exuberance and likability of Remo: The Adventure Begins, only to have the despair of the pop mythology underneath it catch up with you the morning after. Full Review

Remo Williams is one of the most outright enjoyable action adventure films to ever come out of the 1980s, science and logic be damned. Full Review

Rating: C -- A disappointing film, Remo Williams was meant as a star vehicle for Fred ward and as the first chapter of a franchise, but, alas, neither thing happened. Full Review

Product Description:

Brace yourself for hilarious, action-packed adventure! When street-smart NYPD cop (Fred Ward, Tremors) regains consciousness after a bizarre mugging, he has a new face and a new identity! Now he's Remo Williams, the #1 recruit of a top-secret organization, and he's toppling evil at every turn - even atop the Statue of Liberty - in this spectacular and funny adventure film. Trained by a quirky Korean martial arts master (Joel Grey, Cabaret) to dodge bullets, brave terrifying heights and thwart attackers with his bare hands, Remo become the ultimate criminal exterminator. But when he faces off against a corrupt millionaire and his army of henchmen, the real adventure begins! Directed by action great Guy Hamilton, the director of Funeral in Berlin, Force 10 From Navarone and 4 James Bond classics including Goldfinger and Live and Let Die! The stellar cast includes Wilford Brimley (The Thing), J.A. Preston (Body Heat), George Coe (The Entity) and Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway of TV s Star Trek: Voyager).
