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 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)

" Fun to see macho hero Kurt Russell making a fool out of himself as a stupid and useless truck driver loser with a lot in his mouth and nothing in his brain fighting supernatural kung-fu fighters. Like the whimsy feel and how it mixes fantasy into it and there are some fun FX in the film. The ending ask for a sequel that will never come. "

Big Trouble in Little China

“I think if I had watched this from start to finish prior to the age of, I don’t know, about thirteen my opinion on it would be totally different. As it stands, I watched it as I slowly moved over the hump towards thirty. It’s probably one of the best bad movies I’ve ever watched, but that doesn’t mean it’s actually very good.   Nothing about it makes any sort of sense. I watched it but still struggle to explain what exactly Kim Cattrall is doing in the middle of all of this. I guess the plot required a second green-eyed woman, and they figured why not throw in a white leading lady for Kurt Russell to romance? Seems as flimsy and good enough a reason as anything else that happens in this overheated pulp-fest.   The best thing going for it is an insouciant sense of humor abou” read more

"Katsottu: 26.7.2017, DVD Viihdyttävää 80-luvun toimintapelleilyä. Kurt Russell on hyvässä vedossa rekkakuskina, joka joutuu melko erikoiseen seikkailuun Chinatownissa. Elokuva sisältää huumorilla höystettyä toimintaa, pöhkön näköisiä erikoistehosteita, kiinalaista mustaa magiaa sekä pahiksen joka räjähtää liiallisesta vitutuksesta. "

"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."
