Really weird movie, at least the first half as I never expected to see Fred Ward being trained by a fake Korean (not sure what’s worse, Joel Grey or Fisher Stevens from Short Circuit in bad makeup). Had a few entertaining moments but ultimately a forgettable action-adventure-comedy. **2.5/5**
Turn on your suspension of disbelief while watching this movie… because there is a lot that doesn’t make sense.
But, I love this movie. It’s a fun and entertaining adventure.
It’s great to see Kate Mulgrew prior to her Star Trek Voyage days… she does a great job in this movie.
I think Fred Ward is well cast as Remo Williams. He plays the part well, and in the spirit of the movie. He also has excellent chemistry with Chiun.
This, apparently, was supposed to be a pilot for a TV series. But it never went any further.
Underrated action flick
This is one of the most underrated action films ever. Despite, this the movie has some fine cracking dialog. I know some people will be turned off by an occidental actor playing a Korean, and a some of the dialog between Remo and Chuin are exchanges of insults, but Grey and Ward seem to be enjoying the verbal repartee of their characters. Even Remo’s exchange with the horn blower and traffic cop are good, as is one exchange between Rayner and Chuin. It also has the alway good Wilford Brimley and the overlooked performance of Charles Chioffi as George Groves. Chioffi manges to put some genuine menace into a character into what could have been simply another hackneyed villain in an expensive suit.
One of my favorites
I was just the right age when this came out to really enjoy it. Watching it again loses some of the wonder but none of the fun.
A brilliant mix of espionage and Karate Kid with the master / pupil relationship played for both laughs and oriental mystique, this is a film to kick back to and simply enjoy.
The Eighties were the decade for action comedies and this was one of the best (It was nominated for an Oscar, for goodness sakes)- watching it now brings back lots of great memories.
Always liked Fred Ward – he’s the actor Chuck Norris should have been here – and he and the others make this a winner.
Fun movie and one that deserves a remake.
