First they faked his death and gave him a new identity. Now a top secret organisation is training a former New York cop to combat corrupt forces operating outside of the law. His mentor, Chiun, is an ageing Korean master of the martial arts who can run on water and dodge speeding bullets.

Born on the pages of Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir's The Destroyer series of men's adventure novels, Remo Williams was placed in the capable hands of Bond director Guy Hamilton (Goldfinger, The Man with the Golden Gun) for his big-screen outing. Fred Ward (Tremors) plays the trainee assassin, with Academy Award-winner Joel Grey (Cabaret) occupying the role of Chiun.

With its classic set-piece atop the Statue of Liberty, much-loved score by Craig Safan and a healthy sense of its own silliness, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins... offers up a cracking slice of mid-eighties action.

'Remo Williams: The Adventure begins' is arguably one of the 1980s more playfully charismatic, actio

Based on the successful series of action-packed 'Destroyer' novels by writers Warren Murphy & Richard Sapir, and brought to especially vivid Technicolor life by experienced action director guy Hamilton. Gruff, twin-fisted NYC cop (Fred Ward) has a violent altercation with some grubby-looking dockside skells, ending with being physically rammed into the ice-cold drink, and not after this ignominious dunking he awakens greatly disorientated in a private hospital room with handsome rugged features closely resembling that of muscular actor Fed Ward, a spiffy new name, and finds himself part of some deep cover, shadow agency, covertly set up to seek out and destroy any not so clear, but definitely present threat to 80s America! 'Remo Williams: The Adventure begins' is arguably one of the 1980s more playfully charismatic, action-packed adventures, with many heated, delightfully endearing exchanges between bluff proletariat Remo (Fred Ward) and his far more cultured Korean Martial Art mentor Chiun (Joel Grey),plentiful adrenaline-spiking spectacle, and an engaging boy's own plot concerning the imminent threat of terrorist agencies malign, with fleet-footed director Hamilton, and celebrated cinematographer Andrew Laszlo orchestrating a 'landmark' vertigo-inducing chase atop America's eternally vigilant first lady!
