Guilty Pleasures: Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins (1985) is a movie with a terrible name. I don't know why they didn't name it after the book that was the source material called "The Destroyer" by Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir. Fred Ward plays a New York city cop who's recruited to be an assassin for a top secret organization that fights government corruption. Unfortunately, he's given the name Remo Williams as an alias. Full of great action and humor , it's quite entertaining. Excellent make-up for Joel Grey who plays the Korean Chiun. Love that action set piece at the Statue of Liberty. And remember this line from the movie, it's called the Eleventh Commandment. "Thou shall not get away with it."
