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

At the Statue of Liberty, Remo wraps a rope around a boomer's neck and throws him out of the lift, and the rope jerks taut with a sound that implies the man's neck has broken. Afterward, the man is shown hanging from the rope by his foot. See more »
[Last lines, while speeding away on a boat]
Sometimes you're a real pain in the ass!
That is because it is the shortest route to your brain! But we must hurry!
What's the rush?
We must return in time to see if Jim is truly going to walk.
What'd you say?
Or has the doctor merely told him so because he hoped to get a new wing for the hospital from his stepmother.
Chiun, you're incredible!
No! I am better than that!

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.
