This film epitomises the 80's action genre. It is nothing short of a hilarious master-piece with some of the most memorable characters of my childhood. The plot follows the All American trucker, Jack Burton, through the streets of China town and eventually into the paranormal underworld, where he comes face to face with the evil sorcerror Lo-Pan.

With rib-tickling action sequences ... read more

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

Ol' Jack Burton would say "See this movie!"

"Ol' Jack always says... what the hell?"

An outlandish, uncategorisable blend of John Ford (and, by extension, John Wayne) and cornball Chinese mysticism, John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China is a hokey martial arts adventure flick with limitless appeal. The characters are both endearing and witty, with the actors hamming it up to extremes. Meanwhile Carpenter provides direc... read more

Description: Directed by thrill master John Carpenter, this edge-of-your seat adventure stars Kurt Russell as Jack Burton, a tough-talking, wisecracking truck driver whose humdrum life on the road takes a sudden supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiancée is kidnapped. Speeding to the rescue, Jack finds himself deep beneath San Francisco's Chinatown, in a murky, creature-filled world ruled by Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who mercilessly presides over an empire of spirits. Dodging demons and facing baffling terrors, Jack battles his way through Lo Pan's dark domain in a full-throttle, action-riddled ride to rescue the girl. Co-s ... (more)

"15.7. Kolmannella katsomiskerralla Kurt Russellin rekka on edelleen kateissa kiinalaismagian jyllätessä kaikkialla. Russell katselee kiinalaisia yrmymaakareita "mitä vittua?" -ilme kasvoillaan. Joskus munaileva rekkakuskimme onnistuu jopa tekemään jotain oikein. Eräässä elokuvan kohokohdista yksi yrmyilevistä kiinalaispahiksista kuolee siihen, että häntä yksinkertaisesti vituttaa liian paljon."

"4.3, Blu-ray, rewatch ***½ --- **** Kurt Russelin ylimacho pööpöily aasialaisen mystiikan syövereissä toimii useammankin kerran. Carpenterin luoma kokonaisuus on värikkyydessään ja höperyydessään viihdyttävä."

An average movie

“To be honest, it has been years since I have seen this movie and maybe I should probably give it a 2nd chance at some point, especially since it actually has a really solid reputation. Indeed, even though it was a box-office flop when it was released, it quickly became a cult-classic. Well, to be honest, from all the classics directed by John Carpenter, it is the only one for which I really didn’t care much. Basically, it is a really silly movie and, if you love its silliness then you will have a blast watching the damned thing but, in my case, I thought it was usually more cringe-inducing than actually entertaining. I don’t know, the fans might argue that it was incredibly fun and entertaining but I was rather bored by this feature and it felt rather like watching a cheap rip-off of ” read more

"Carpenterin keikan jälkimainingeissa tuli fiilis katsoa tämä. Keikalla näytetyt pätkät filmistä saivat nostalgia sydämen sykkimään. Hyvähän tämä edelleen on. Jälkikasvun kanssa varmaan joskus tulevaisuudessa melko kliffaa katsottavaa. Huomasin, että Torinon hevonen eli nimimerkki Kurkkuharja on antanut Big Trouble in Little Chinalle kaksi tähteä. Hän ei tiedä mistään mitään."
