About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An upscale send-up. – Walter Goodman, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Special effects don't mean much unless we care about the characters who are surrounded by them, and in this movie the characters often seem to exist only to fill up the foregrounds. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

No Horse***t Wang!

One of the best movies ever! Clever one liners that will keep you rolling. This movie has it all, high kicks, low kicks, laughs, gouls, demons, girls, and much more. Oh and did i mention Chineese black Magic? This movie will definately engulf your living room in green flame and keep you asking for more.

Best Movie Ever!

Big Trouble in Little China is amazing. Action, adventure and comedy are all here, and the result is one of the best cult classic films of all time. I must have seen this movie 50+ times, and it never gets old. Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is the character that everyone would like to be just for a day (maybe more). Driving around in The Pork Chop Express, beating up the bad guys, scoring with the's all in the reflexes for Ol' Jack Burton!

A Cult Classic

This movie is one of John Carpenter's better adventures. Kurt Russell plays the egotistical Jack Burton extremely well, delivering the cheesy macho lines in the way they were intended. Beautifully filmed (the fight scene in the alley), this has been one of my favorites from Carpenter for a long time with "They Live" a close second.
