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 »
As Remo descends to get a closer look at the Harp satellite by sliding down a guy wire, holding on with his hands, we see that the stunt man is holding on to a rope wrapped around the wire. When Remo lands, he is again holding on with just his hands. See more »
Do you know why Americans call it fast food?
[Remo shakes his head "no."]

Look all you movie snobs out there. This is a classic 80's action flick and nothing more. Sure there were some effects, but that is not the focus of the story. It is the interplay between Remo and Chuin that makes this one shine. It has classic and memorable lines. And, it was good enough for major plot points to be stolen later by the writers of the Matrix and Men in Black. If you want better action sequences, see those. If you want to see 80's action in all of its glory, get this one. One last point: It is sad that the DVD doesn't have a Widescreen option.
