Product Description

Amazon.ca

Once you settle into the realization that this 1986 John Carpenter (Halloween) film is not going to be one of the director's more masterful works, Big Trouble in Little China just becomes a full-tilt comic blast. Kurt Russell is hilarious as a drawling, would-be John Wayne hero who steps into the middle of a supernatural war in the heart of Chinatown. While kung fu warriors and otherworldly spirits battle over the fate of two women (Kim Cattrall and Suzee Pai), Russell's swaggering idiot manages to knock himself out or underestimate the forces he's dealing with. The whole thing is dopey, but it's supposed to be dopey and Russell's game performance brings an ironic edge. Carpenter directs some nifty spook effects (the sudden arrival of three martial arts demigods from out of nowhere is worth applause), and he also wrote the music. --Tom Keogh

I cannot begin to describe how much I am a fan of this movie. I have the entire script memorized. I have muted the film and voiced out the entire film. My friends hate watching this with me; they think I am a freak. Big Trouble in little China is a whole lot of fun. China must be pretty bad these days if even Chinese wizards and Gods immigrated to the U.S. Which is good for us because it provides us with a lot of action packed hilarious entertainment. Kurt Russell acting like a klutzy John Wayne, every Asian that appeared on Bonanza, kung fu fights with six-shooters and Tommy Guns, Kim Cattrall before she banged everyone in New York. What else could you want? How about three storm Gods and big super charged fight on what looks like the stage of an Ozzy Osborne concert? I highly recommend this movie. If you don't like it then you are probably dead inside. Two things I wish were different about the film. 1. That they had advertised more so I would have seen it on the big screen. I never heard of this film until I saw it on video at a kids house I did not even like. 2. They had made a sequel. More Trouble in Little China, um Little Trouble in Big China, who knows all I want is a part two.

All I know is that this Lo Pan character comes out of thin air in the middle of an alley while his buddies are flying around on wires cutting everybody to shreds while he just STANDS there waiting for me to drive my truck straight through him with LIGHT coming out of his mouth!
- Jack Burton (played by Kurt Russell)
*PLOT* - By reading the above I'm sure by now you've guessed what kind of a movie "Big Trouble in Little China" is: strange, wacky, silly, but INCREDIBLY funny! Kurt Russell is Jack Burton, a guy who has an ego even bigger than the truck he drives. While stopping by Chinatown to see his buddy Wang Chi (Dennis Dun), Jack gets entangled into a supernatural war involving the 'supposedly dead' David Lo Pan (James Hong), two beautiful green eyed ladies Gracie Law and Miao Yin (Kim Cattrall & Suzee Pai), the Chinese tour guide Egg Shen (Victor Wong), and three spirit warriors Thunder (Carter Wong), Rain (Peter Kwong), and Lightning (James Pax). I know, the movie sounds pretty far out, but this is the type of movie where it doesn't matter if the plot is believable. This is the type of movie where you can kick back in your sofa with a bowl of popcorn and prepare yourself for some mindless fun.
*ACTING* - Kurt Russell steals every single scene as the egomaniac Jack Burton. He is so extremely funny you can't help but love him! Dennis Dun as Wang is also a very likable character. Jack and Wang are a great duo.
*ACTION* - The kung fu is surprisingly good for what some people might call a 'B grade movie'. Dennis Dun's fight between him and one of the spirit warriors is very cool. The kung fu is also not like the stylized fighting we see in more recent films, much more realistic though some 'deaths' are a bit fake.

Format: DVD
I've always been a John Carpenter fan.. sure, his films aren't always the biggest hits, but they're inevitably well-crafted and entertaining. Moreover, they're always better than you'd think possible, given the subject matter. Big Trouble in Little China is a classic example. I'd only seen it a few times before, piecemeal and probably on USA at 2 o'clock in the morning. What a tragedy. This film is a national treasure.
Why? Everything about it is absurd..and purposefully so. Try to read the plot aloud without laughing: A mullet-wearing truck driver teams up with his Chinese-American buddy to battle ancient Chinatown demons commanded by the ethereal 2000 year old Lo Pan and rescue their respective green-eyed (would-be) girlfriends, all with the aid of local magician/tour bus driver Egg Sheng and his lazy-eyed sorcery.
Yet, somehow, it all works perfectly. Kurt Russell is a riot as Jack Burton, a bumbling and inept, yet surprisingly hardy, truck driver with a lot of buddies in Chinatown who has to take on a world of Chinese legends. His loud-mouthed bravado at all times (presumably he's intended to be a classic jerk American foreign devil) forms the basis for his irrepressible camaraderie with the other heroes in the movie. He may have no idea what he's doing, but darn it he's gonna do it anyway. Some folks may be misled (as I was by the USA Up All Night tidbits) into thinking this was some sort of cheesy martial arts film. It isn't. This is a flat-out comedy that just happens to involve a lot of swordfights, demons, and electrical discharges.

Big Trouble in Little China [1986] [Limited Edition SteelBook] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] JACK BURTON’S IN FOR SOME SERIOUS TROUBLE!

Following the ‘Escape from New York’ and The Thing,’ John Carpenter and Kurt Russell re-unite for this mystical, action, adventure, comedy, kung-fu, monster, ghost story!

Kurt Russell plays Jack Burton, a reasonable guy who is about to experience some unreasonable things in San Francisco s Chinatown. As his friend s fiancée is kidnapped Jack becomes embroiled in a centuries-old battle between good and evil. At the root of it all is Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who rules an empire of evil spirits. Jack goes to the rescue dodging demons, goblins and the unstoppable Three Storms as he battles through Lo Pan s dark domain.

One of Carpenters most enjoyable and best loved films, ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ brilliantly juggles delirious set-pieces, comedy and kung-fu action with a razor sharp script of corking one-liners, as Jack would say "It's all in the reflexes". The super-deluxe package, which is available both as a standard Blu-ray and as a Limited Edition SteelBook Blu-ray, is full of special features and bonus materials.

Cast: Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong, Victor Wong, Kate Burton, Donald Li, Carter Wong, Peter Kwong, James Pax, Suzee Pai, Chao-Li Chi, Al Leong, Gerald Okamura, William S. Wong, Eric Lee, Yukio G. Collins, Bill M. Ryusaki, Brian Imada, Nathan Jung, John Carpenter (uncredited), Dawna Lee Heising (uncredited) and Leo Lee (uncredited)
