Comedy • PG-13 • 1986 • 1 hr 39 min
What’s not to love about this film, it’s brilliant
An insane film that leans into itself perfectly. I've never watched anything that is closer to what my dreams are like.
A classic action film and a great time for sure 8/10
Ridiculously fun film that doesn’t take itself seriously and has one of the most over the top death scenes ever.
A satisfying action packed expedition into John Carpenter strange
The film equivalent of a kung-fu beat-em-up. Great fun with a crowd, carried by Russell’s charisma and equal parts machismo/stupidity.
John Carpenter’s greatest work, Big Trouble in Little China is a crazy 1980s martial arts action film pumped with 20 jolts of LSD.
Classic a grand story wish we all had a jack in our lives. So bad it’s gone bad to good again. Fun ride Sifi, Kung fu ,action,love story
A perfect 80s film and one of Carpenter’s absolute best with a career defining performance from Russel and an incredible cast of villains
A bizarrely wild ride. Just a really fun classic action comedy adventure. Surprisingly impressive visual effects for its time
