    Horrible! Skip the move and read the books

    This film is based on a long running series of adventure novels created by Warren Murphy. I loved the books so I was excited they were going to make a feature film -- until I saw it. What a total waste of opportunity. I hadn't seen mishandling of a subject this horrendous since George Pal ruined Doc Savage in the 70s. Even the authors (Murphy and those who took over later) hated this film with such contempt they had the characters in the novels slam it every chance they get. The ONLY positive thing I have to say about this film are the stars Fred Ward, Joel Grey and Wilford Brimley. They fit their roles perfectly. Sadly, except for some fun dialogue between Remo and his trainer/mentor Chuin, they had nothing to work with. Finally, there is nothing worse than a boring action film, and that is exactly what this thing is. Remo and Chuin are supposed to be elite assassins and experts in the most effective martial art ever created, yet they fight like first grade karate students with arthritis. Inexcusable! This should have had some of the greatest fight scenes ever choreographed. Also, while they face a collection of the most insidious villains on Earth in the novels, this film has them up against some greedy weapons manufacturer my grandmother could whip. Do yourself a favor: skip the film and read the books instead.

    One of my favorite movies, why didn't they release in widescreen?

    Contrary to the editorial review, I think the comic book level characters are part of the movies charm. I have a policy that I will only purchase movies in the original theatrical release aspect ration. C'mon MGM what gives?

    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

    This movie begs to be in widescreen. MGM dropped the ball again. This is a great action comedy but being in full screen you might as well watch only half the movie. It's about a guy who was a cop but wakes up to find his death faked and his face altered. A special branch of the government wants him or else. The DVD transfer is great but the extras are slim. Wait for widescreen version if it ever comes out.

    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

    Don't get me wrong this is a great movie and I give it 4 stars. I gave the DVD one star because it's in full frame only. This movie begs to be in widescreen. Why MGM is releaseing all these great movies in full frame is beyond me. They did the same thing with Miracle Mile and Gator. The DVD looks good but has no extras, not even liner notes. This is still a fun adventure and shouldn't be missed.

    Remo Williams: a movie ahead of it's time!

    With the onslaught of hokey spy flicks,(charlie's angels, XXX, I-spy etc.,) Remo williams is still a serious contender. Loosely based on the Destroyer series (because not all the story intricancies are observed) the characters still live up to the basic premises. Chuin (Joel Grey) does not wear the traditional robes, he wears glasses and is not as remarkable is he is in the books.Remo is Remo, save that he started as Sam Makin and was renamed after a bedpan.Wilford Brimley was not a good choice as Smith and Folcroft sanitarium was downgraded to a bank. Those were the bad points.Everything else pretty much adheres to the spirit and there were many references and snippets from the books to satify the true fans of Remo and Chuin, in fact, Fred Ward looks exactly as the painting of Remo when the first edition of Created the Destroyer hit the stands.What is now common grounds for action films was started with the Destroyer series and it's a shame that no one has decided to raise the bar by reintroducing the Master of Sinanju and his pupil.

    I Also Recommend:

    Clever and funny action flick

    I purchased this film because I had seen it when first released and liked it. I had thought others would follow, but they didn't. Anytime I found it on TV, I watched it. So, when I found it in Barnes & Noble for a great price, I purchased it and I'm glad I did. It's a clever and funny action flick which is a little campy in parts but all-in-all fun to watch.

    I first saw this movie when it was released way back when(80's?). I had my kids watch it and they love it too. And ya gotta love Fred Ward, esp after the Tremors flicks.
