About the Film
Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a simple man who doesn’t believe in ghosts or magic until he’s swept into a mind-boggling adventure deep within Chinatown’s mysterious underworld. Burton’s pal, Wang Chi (Dennis Dun), is trying to rescue his kidnapped fiancée. Egg Shen (Victor Wong), an enigmatic tour-bus driver seems to know a lot about ancient Chinese magic for a simple tour-bus driver. They do battle with an outlandish array of human and inhuman adversaries under the command of Lo Pan (James Hong), a 2000-year-old evil magician who has the power to transform himself from a wheelchair-bound old man into a seven-foot-tall mystical menace.
Over the top and Hilarious
Ok I will admit, the plot is so full of holes it looks like swiss cheese, but this is one film that I can and will watch time and time again, just for the ham acting and terrible jokes. The special effects are excessive while the fight scenes are beautifully choreographed. Although not full of belly laughs, it keeps you giggling and amused throughout the show. Kurt Russell is brilliant at being the obnoxious hero with a heart of gold. It is harmless and fun, a good family film to sit back and enjoy.
I love this film, it's funny, over the top, unbelievable but an absolute classic. Would happily watch it over and over again and worth every penny!!!
