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

last night, August 26/2016. and i am so glad I saw it, Kim Cattrall I can do without. never seen her in anything
that’s why I’ve passed on this for so long, but Kurt Russell is my favorite actor, what I like about the movie it
has everything you can think about, big rig, flying demons, people with special skills that can kick the snot out
of you, people changing in different creatures, and don’t forget humor lots of humor to go with action,
there is one scene in the movie that remind me of the original Ghost Busters when the Marshmallow man blew up,
this one the guy got so mad he blew himself up. that was funny as hell. this I can see more than once..or twice.
all you people need to come back an get this blu-ray edition it is outstanding I’m sure that's better than the DVD.
Funny Funny Movie I Love It..
English 5.1 DTS HD. Subtitled in many languages.
1986/Color 100 Min.
The film is right up there with that whole genre of movies from the 80`s that delved into dragons, magic, sorcery, good versus evil, and tons of classic one liner`s perfectly delivered from Mr. Russel.
The film takes place in a dark and rainy American China Town, and is a story of an ancient Demonic Chinese sorcerer who is trapped in an old man`s body. He is seeking a woman with Jade Green eyes who has the power to change his spiritual form back into flesh and blood.
Jack (Kurt Russel) goes on an adventure with his trusty side kick to defeat the evil powers of the ancient Chinese sorcerer and save the girl with jade green eyes.
We get to see crazy martial arts fighting scenes in dark rainy ally`s with armies of Evil Chinese Warriors who can shoot Lightening out of their hands and fly through the air with ease. Flying jump kicks Galore!
All in all a very fun and entertaining movie with a happy ending. Definitely a Cult Classic 80`s Movie.
Kurt Russle is the only man on the planet who can flawlessly rock the mullet.
This has soured what was to be an enjoyable flashback experience.
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 and a spooky 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.
