(1986) dir John Carpenter w/Kurt Russell, Kim Catrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong, Victor Wong, Kate Burton [99 min]
A reminder of the halcyon days of the magical Kurt Russell/John Carpenter partnership, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA follows Jack (Russell) as he and his motley crew fight Chinatown street gangs, kung fu warriors and an ancient sorcerer with really long fingernails, to save his buddy’s girlfriend from becoming the bride of the immortal and gross Lo Pan. The battles are epic and include a lot of kung fu action, Kurt Russell doing things, and claymation. The perfect trinity if ever there was one.
