Synopsis:
Directed by master film-maker John Carpenter, this edge-of-your seat adventure stars Kurt Russell as Jack Burton, a tough talking, wisecracking truck driver whose hum-drum life on the road takes a sudden supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiance is kidnapped. Speeding to the rescue, Jack finds himself deep beneath San Francisco's Chinatown. It's a murky, creature-filled world ruled by Lo Pan, a 2000-year-old magician who mercilessly presides over an empire of sprits. 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-starring Kim Cattrall, this effects-filled sci-fi spectacle speeds to an incredible, twist-taking finish.

Drivel - Big Trouble in Little China review by AB

Spoiler Alert
19/04/2020

Too confusing, too loud, too unbelievable, too rubbishy to even be taken seriously as a film.

"edge-of-your-seat" adventure? No. An early Kurt Russell film that should have been buried under San Francisco.

Nothing good about the film at all, no storyline, no decent special effects (perhaps excepting the bug-eyed all-seeing beach ball) and too many Chinese mythology sub-stories that just help confuse the main 'action', which is a long uninteresting sequence of kung-fu confrontations that have been better done in other films and TV series - yes, you, Grasshopper. Cannot recommend at all
