      • Jul 01, 2018

        I cannot believe this hasn't developed a bona fide cult following yet. I caught this on the weekend and I hold this up with some of the guilty films of the 70s e.g. Flash Gordon. The film is pulpy fun and if you attempt to dissect as a film that is serious, you miss the point. I think the film was advanced for its time, everybody missed the point of this film, probably miss marketed. Fred Ward is a nice twist on the usual star making roles of the era, normally someone like Val Kilmer or Tom Cruise might have stepped in here. That scene with the guard dogs is worth watching the film alone, you just can't fault a film of this type. Harmless fun and one of the better Pulp adaptions I have seen. 01/07/2018.

        More comedic than actioner, this work is more for the yuks than for oomph. Mainly it comes across as hokey anymore, but it's good for a Saturday rainy afternoon.

        Aside from having a surplus of exposition, "Remo Williams - The Adventure Begins" ultimately suffers from taking itself too seriosuly when it is, in fact, a B movie. That isn't to say that it isn't exciting and, in a way, charming; it just should embrace its silliness with open arms, which director Guy Hamilton seems unwilling to do. There's plenty of adventure and entertainment value and some quite stellar set pieces, and Fred Ward and Joel Grey are substantial in their roles, but "Remo Williams - The Adventure Begins" could have used a smaller budget and a director less inclined to have everything make total sense. Still, it holds up as mindless entertainment quite well.

        This movie has action, comedy, outrageous and silly stunts... it's stupid, but fun. It could have been a better movie, though. It needed some funnier jokes, a couple of better actors maybe, at least for the bad guys, and maybe they could rewrite the script a little. As it is, the ending isn't satisfactory, we need more to the story, but the rest of it is mostly entertaining.
