It is on right now. Pretty hoakie, but I like it. I have seen it a dozen times, and will probably watch it a dozen more.

The AR60 Grove assault rifle.

They offered that role to Chuck Norris. But even he wouldn't do it......

that movie sucked beyond all that could possibly suck. Its suckiness is beyond words other than suck.

Loved it in the '80s. Remo's training scenes were cool.




Chiun: Women should stay home and make babies. Preferably, manchild.
Major Rayner Fleming: [to Remo] I see you both went to the same charm school.




New York City traffic control cop: Excuse me. What are you doin' to that boy?
Remo Williams: Oh, uh, unnecessary use of the horn, officer.
New York City traffic control cop: Well, I'll be unnecessary use of my nightstick on your thick skull if you don't let him go.
Remo Williams: Whatever happened to police courtesy and that kind of stuff, huh?
New York City traffic control cop: We save that bull-shit for the upper east side.




Remo Williams: You know, Chiun, there are times when I really like you.
Chiun: Of course. I am Chiun.
Remo Williams: And there are times when I could really kill you.
Chiun: Good. We will practice that after dinner.

It's an ok movie, I never expected Fred Ward to play an Action star.

Grow a sense of humor and come back when you're prepared to use it.

That movie freaking ROCKED!

"Chiun, you're incredible."
"NO!....................I am better than that."

How could anyone not love this movie?

The movie was great.

It helped tha I have read about 70-80 of the destroyer series. (Which this is based off of).

And if you thought Chuck Norris was bad, you REALLY don't want to mess with Chiun or Remo.

FYI, deep within Remo, resides a god, Shiva, the Destroyer.

Great books if you are looking to kill a few hours.

Since this was based upon a series of books, I thought that there would have been at least one sequel.

It was kind of cheesy, but enjoyable.

Thank Gawd there was no sequel. The first one was bad enough. You do have to have a sense of humor to enjoy it.

I know! The adventure began, but never continued.

I loved it.

I was always hoping for sequels Cheesy yes but awesomely entertaining.

Man, Remo is a classic. I loved that movie.

Don't you just love that Chiun just loved the TV Soap Operas!?

CMOS

This woulld have made a great TV series. I read every one of the books when I was a kid. They are funny as hell. The Ruby character was a gem.

That's because Chuck Norris is an Uber Pussy compared to Remo Williams.

It's really a guilty pleasure movie. Ridiculous? Yes Silly? Yes but I do love it. And I thought I was the only one.

I loved that movie when i was a kid.

I actually saw that in the theater... LOL!
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 11:01:04 AM EDT
I still love that movie. I can't believe they didn't make a sequel, considering the books are still being written.
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 11:05:12 AM EDT
This is no time for prayer!

:Chiun: Professional assassination. It's the highest form of public service.
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 11:23:16 AM EDT
Ha, I liked it when I was a kid enough but figured if the books were like the movie (cheesy), I'd skip 'em.
Link Posted: 1/18/2006 11:25:38 AM EDT
Anyone remember "Time Rider"? Another 80s Fred Ward action movie.
