Jonathan plays Gotcha with fellow college students, testing ability as assassin or mark, using paintball guns on campus. He flies to Paris on vacation and, with a woman taking his virginity, on to Berlin, where the game/ammo gets real.
An NYPD cop is 'killed' in an accident. The death is faked, and he is inducted into the organization CURE, dedicated to preserving the constitution by working outside of it. Remo is to become the enforcement wing (assassin) of CURE, and learns an ancient Korean martial art from Chiun, the Master of Sinanju. Based on the popular pulp series "The Destroyer," by Richard Sapir and Warren Murphy.Written by

When Remo is attempting to shoot Chiun, he fires 8 rounds from his Colt 1911 pistol. Chiun then removes the magazine and pops more rounds out. A standard 1911 magazine only holds 8 rounds. Para Ordnance, the first company to make a 1911 copy with a double stack magazine holding more than 8 rounds, didn't begin manufacturing them until after production wrapped on this movie in 1984. So it can't even be one of their prototypes. See more »

UK cinema and video versions were cut by 35 secs by the BBFC with edits to kicks and blows during the opening fight scene. The cuts are restored in the MGM DVD release. See more »
So what if the the total package is not up to blockbuster standards. We need these types of film to go and have a great afternoon at the movies where you don't have to think and you can eat a lot of popcorn. I dug the hell out of this movie because it didn't take itself too seriously. It looks like they had a fun time making it and God bless em' for it! You started to get a little idea of the outrageousness of it all when Chiun begins talking about all the other great martial arts as mere shadows compared with his fighting style. And then there's the water-walking or running toward the end of the film. And the super secret organization (with only 3 members!) answering only to the President. What a hoot! But every time I see it on the tube, I'm right there watching it if I can.
