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 and an epic final battle between memorable henchmen, chinese rent-a-villains and scores of unexplained good guys, this is the kind of film you can't afford not to have in your DVD collection. Get some friends around, get some beers in, and take your serious hat off. Perfect.
