The Reviews for Big Trouble in Little China (1986) 720p

Cult ClassicReviewed bydosriosstudiosVote: 7/10

Simply a great cult classic. I saw it when it first came out in 85-86 and thought it was hysterical. I recently watched it again and I still got a lot of laughs. Overall, I really appreciate John Carpenter and Kurt Russell's work in this movie. It was definitely ahead of its time. It has humor, great kung fu (homage to the genre before it was cool), Chinese mysticism, great special effects, and most importantly it never took itself seriously. :-)

I have to agree with the commentary on the DVD, you either love this movie, or you have "never" seen it.

Rent this movie if you are looking for good light fun.

One of the Greatest Action and Popcorn Movies of the 80'sReviewed byClaudio CarvalhoVote: 8/10

The truck driver Jack Burton (Kurt Russel) arrives in Chinatown, San Francisco, and goes to the airport with his Chinese friend Wang Chi (Dennis Dun) to welcome his green-eyed fiancée Miao Yin (Suzee Pai) that is arriving from China. However she is kidnapped on the arrival by a Chinese street gang and Jack and Wang chase the group. Soon they learn that the powerful evil sorcerer called David Lo Pan (James Hong), who has been cursed more than two thousand years ago to exist without physical body, needs to marry a woman with green eyes to retrieve his physical body and Miao is the chosen one. Jack and Wang team-up with the lawyer Gracie Law (Kim Cattrall), the bus driver and sorcerer apprentice Egg Shen (Victor Wong) and their friends and embark in a great adventure in the underground of Chinatown, where they face a world of magicians and magic, monsters and martial arts fighters.

"Big Trouble in Little China" is one of the best action movies of the 80's. The director John Carpenter deserves an Oscar for his filmography. It is amazing how many great movies John Carpenter has offered for us, lovers of action / sci-fi / horror movies. "Big Trouble in Little China" combines action, comedy and magic and in Brazil has been presented many times in the afternoon / popcorn session of TV. Kurt Russel is great in this type of movie, and Kim Cattral (the ex-Lieutenant Klingon of Star Trek and the nymphomaniac Samantha in "Sex and the City" ) is gorgeous as Gracie Law. "Big Trouble in Little China" is a great entertainment for the whole family. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Os Aventureiros do Bairro Proibido" ("The Adventurers of the Forbidden Zone")

Note: On 14 November 2014, I saw this movie again.

Ol' Jack always says... what the hell?Reviewed bySpikeopathVote: 8/10

Out of 20th Century Fox, Big Trouble in Little China is directed by John Carpenter and stars Kurt Russell, Kim Catrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong & Victor Wong. The adaptation is by W.D. Richter with the screenplay from Gary Goldman & David Z. Weinstein. Dean Cundey photographs and Alan Howarth doubles up with Carpenter for the musical score.

Truck driver Jack Burton (Russell) agrees to take his friend Wang Chi (Dun) to pick up his fiancée at the airport. Little does he know that he is about to get involved in a supernatural battle between good and evil beneath San Francisco's Chinatown district.

A box office failure on its release, and known to be the moment when John Carpenter gave up on Hollywood, Big Trouble in Little China has gathered "cult" momentum over the years and shows up rather well these days. Blending Chinese mysticism with chop-schlocky adventure, Carpenter's movie is at once daft but also a ball of energetic fun; propelled by a handsome, but inept, action hero. Carpenter had always wanted to tackle a martial arts movie, and here he gets to do it whilst laying on the comedy and playing with effects as his movie mostly comes alive in a magical underworld of monsters, magicians and sexy green eyed women.

It's evident now that the film was ahead of its time, not from a technical viewpoint, but from the point it tried to Americanise chopsocky. This is some time before Chinese style wire-work and mythology became common to Hollywood, one has to believe that Tarantino was nodding approvingly around about then. It's also worth noting that although this "American" movie has an American beefcake as its main protagonist, it's the Asian Americans who actually are the heroes of the piece, with Dun's sidekick the stand out hero as Russell's Burton bumbles his way from one sequence to the next. It was a bold move by Carpenter to structure the narrative that way, one that annoyed the executives at Fox and kept the paying public bemused. It's easy to see why the film failed, contrast it with the similarly themed Eddie Murphy movie, The Golden Child, from the same year, which was a box office success. There the public got what they wanted (or what they were used too), the standard American hero fluff where Murphy saves the day and gets the girl.

Carpenter dared to be different and had fun along the way, as did his cast. It may have taken a decade of VHS and DVD releases to prove he was right, but right he was, Big Trouble in Little China is a damn fine movie. Russell plays it meat head style, with swagger in tow and tongue stuck in cheek. Nicely toned physique for the girls to enjoy, and making vest wearing cool two years before Willis did in Die Hard. Cattrall is wonderfully alluring, red lips and green eyes shimmering bright in a world of color; and boys, look out for her wet scene, it's wolf whistle time! Dun is likable and athletic, while Hong as Lo Pan gives the action/adventure genre a truly memorable villain. The film is briskly paced and not found wanting in the set piece department either. Not all the effects are high grade, but in a film with such zestful comic book traditions at heart, it hardly matters a jot. With a great DVD package doing it justice, Carpenter's movie is now, at long last, getting the appreciative audience it deserves. Amen to that. 8/10
