The producers were hoping to create a James Bond-style franchise by adapting The Destroyer novels and therefore hired Bond screenwriter Christopher Wood to pen the script. Bond director Guy Hamilton was hired to direct. Remo was considered a "blue collar James Bond". See more »
When the Dobermann follows Remo across the wire, the Dobermann's feet disappear behind a matte painting used to conceal the flat surface. The wire itself is invisible, with only the division between the matte and the background defining it. At the end of the shot the Dobermann even starts to run across the "wire". See more »

This is an excellent movie that blurs the line between action/adventure and comedy in the tradition of Big Trouble in Little China. The one-liners from Remo (Fred Ward) Chiun (Joel Grey) and Mr. Smith (Wilford Brimley) are reason enough to see this movie. Some people complained that the martial arts abilities are too unbelievable. However, if you enjoy "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", any James Bond movie, or just about any martial arts movie coming out of Asia, you should have no problem with Remo Williams. The music to the movie is also surprisingly well done. I wholeheartedly recommend this movie to anyone with a trace of humor in their soul. You will not be disappointed.
