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

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)

“Sin duda alguna es de esas películas MUY de los 80's que no ha envejecido bien, a mí como amante de las cosas retro me gustó y su comedia tanto voluntaria como involuntariamente me pareció sumamente simpática y ocurrente. Me entristece un poco que una cinta con este tipo de comedia no pueda tener un remake en tiempos modernos por cuestiones de correccionismo político y además le tengo cierto aprecio especial por la amplia inspiración que dió para crear Mortal Kombat.” read more
