    For my money, the toughest Clint Eastwood cop was the Arizona deputy in "Coogan's Bluff." The fight in the poolroom, plus the totally realistic motorcycle chase of villain Don Stroud through the Cloisters.

    Even rotary saw blades.

    Pound for pound, none would be a match for Stuart Little.

    Mel Gibson as the Road Warrior is pretty tough to beat.

    Because of the Solo Movie, which wanted to be a series in the worst way, I started thinking about other movies that clearly had higher intentions. Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins was tops on my list

    Just checked and Fred Ward is 76 and Joel Grey is 87. This could still happen!

    It is certainly one of the most obvious in terms of its intent, just based on the title.

    CD, I was about to look up Fred Ward's age. I didn't even realize Joel Grey was still alive.

    That movie was released 34 years ago. I imagine it has some value as something to laugh at.

    Also, Chiun was the real badass in that movie, not Remo.
