Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins is one of the many films that tried to actually launch a series of sequels before the results of the box office receipts were in. The producers were so sure that Remo Williams part one would be so successful that they would produce a series of films based upon the title character. Another example of counting your cash before it arrives in your hand. I was glad for one that this film didn't take off the ground. But that didn't stop the producers from trying to force the FOX Network to create a series of made-for-t.v.-movies based upon the DESTROYER novels.
Fred Ward (American defined!!) stars as a lazy and sloppy cop who's declared legally dead after a botched arrest. Fred is given the identity of Remo Williams and becomes a reluctant federal super cop. Remo doesn't like his name or the dangerous assignment of becoming a secret agent. How does Remo adjust to his new life? Why did the government choose a sloppy, sloven and dirty cop to become America's last hope in case of a national emergency? Is that really a Jewish dude acting like a Korean martial arts master?? To find out you'll just have to watch REMO WILLIAMS: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS and you'll find out why there were no more follow up movies. Very mediocre and badly dated.
