Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble in Little China ★★★★

John Carpenter is just here making banger after banger. This has to be one of the most rewatchable movies of all-time and Russell is not above making himself look silly. This film would never get made today, but luckily it got made in the 80's. Time to go ride the Pork Chop Express. Previous review:

Eventually I rub everyone the wrong way.

Big Trouble in Little China is another John Carpenter and Kurt Russell team up that is a highly entertaining blend of action-adventure, sci-fi, horror, martial arts, and Chinese mysticism. It’s awesome.

Russell plays unlikely truck driving “hero” Jack Burton and he’s great in the role as you’d expect. He’s joined by a stellar cast featuring Dennis Dun, Kim Cattrall, and Victor Wong as they battle Chinese gangs, monsters, and an ancient sorcerer. There is never a dull moment as they make their way through Chinatown and the score and sets are excellent. It’s a crazy film, but the 80’s charm is undeniable and it’s another gem from Carpenter that everyone should check out.
