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

First of two "Remo Williams" movies with the second being made-for-television and first broadcast around three years after this picture [See: Remo Williams: The Prophecy (1988)]. 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 »
It would be better for you to eat this can than what is inside of it. Why must everything in this country be coated with monositi-... monosoti...
Monosodium glutamate. You can't even say it.
I can say "rat droppings." That does not mean I want to eat them.

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.
