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

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 bu... read more

Really silly but great action flick. Kurt Russell is hilarious as the misbegotten truck driver who seems fated to run into every Chinese bad guy in Little China. Great entertainment - a feel good flick.
View all Big Trouble in Little China reviews
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.

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)

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 80’s (1407 movies items)

" Jack Burton, is a truck driver who finds himself in a situation that even he finds odd, namely trying save his best friend, Wang’s beautiful girlfriend, and a lawyer named Gracie Law, from the evil David LoPan, and travel to lowest pits of the underworld. It’s the adventure of a lifetime! But however, critics gave it mixed reviews, and found that it was cheesy, and fun, but also ventured at times in the too ridiculous to believe territory. Big Trouble in Little China, had Big Trouble in "

Dream Mortal Kombat Combatants (21 movies items)

"Why?: The character of Shang Tsung, is not unlike David Lo Pan, so why not have the two compete? I would also have Jack Burton, but he has no discernible powers, or combat skills, he wouldn’t be able to compete. But still, it would be cool. "

"Me encanta que el héroe americano de turno sea más el sidekick de otra etnia y el sidekick de otra etnia es el verdadero héroe de turno. Aparte es una comedia de aventura épica que es bastante consciente de la ridiculez que se presenta. Joya infravaloradísima; sin esto no existiría Mortal Kombat."

"28.7. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Kurt Russellin itsetarkoituksellinen machoilu överikorneine dialogeineen on totta kai kaikkea mahdollista ja mahdotonta sisältävän sillisalaatin kantava voima. Tarina (oikeastaan koko elokuva) on sekava, mutta sillä ei taida olla merkitystä. Etenee jokseenkin merkityksellisesti ja tappelut kiinnostavat."
