Why didn’t the adventure continue? As Remo, grizzly-great character actor Fred Ward (”The Right Stuff”) dodges bullets but fails to sidestep the one that unjustly murdered the failed franchise after only one stuntacular action comedy. Formerly a candy-scarfing NYC cop, Remo is retrained as a light-footed secret agent by Chiun, a cryptic Korean martial-arts master played (improbably yet indelibly) by unrecognizable Caucasian-as-Asian Joel Grey. One of the better ’80s actioners, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins’s also an appealing retro document, especially during its climactic death-defying battle atop the repair scaffolding that famously swallowed up the Statue of Liberty almost 20 years ago. EXTRAS It’s time, ”Remo” fans, to give up hope for a sequel; the studio couldn’t even be bothered to assemble more than the trailer for the DVD.
