An enormous amount of mature marijuana plants are plainly visible as Remo and Rayner work their way across the Army base. It leaves one to wonder what the Army really was testing at Mount Promise. See more »
When Remo is riding on the log and being shot at, the general and Grove are in an open Jeep. When the logs hit the vehicle and it goes over the edge, it is a closed truck. The top of the cab is clearly visible. See more »
Breathe out... slowly... do not gulp. If you do not breathe correctly, you do not move correctly. Pitiful. I can see the deadly hamburger has done its evil work.

This is a classic 80's action flick, with a twist. The two main characters are a kick to watch as the hardboiled New York cop is trained in the ways of the wise master of shinanju. The action scenes are awesome, and there are plenty of laughs as we watch our hero Remo struggle to overcome his fears and vices to become a master of shinanju. Fred Ward as Remo and Joel Grey as Chun really capitalize on the comedic opportunities here. The soundtrack is top-notch, perfectly blending a patriotic hero theme with graceful oriental influences. I highly recommend you take this one home and check it out - it's a lot of fun.
