    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins

    ★★★★½

    The two reasons the film doesn't get five stars is:
    1) it's obviously the set up for a series that never happened, which, dramatically, leaves it a little limp.
    2) there isn't really an ending. There's a stunt sequence and then it kind of ends. (Apparently that was a budget thing.)

Don't ask "why?" it was made. Relish the beautiful world in which it was made.
