Big Trouble in Little China Reviews

Stephen Carty
Flix Capacitor

Some of the acting is ropey and the effects are dated, but Big Trouble In Little China occasionally looks and feels like classic Carpenter, while Kurt Russell is on charismatic form as the frequently ineffective tough-guy hero.

Works as a stand alone classic that features John Carpenter at his best.

This is a bizarre, fun, action packed film, filled with wild characters and an adventurous, imaginative and campy spirit.

Lessons of Darkness

Benefits from a rollicking wise-ass performance from Kurt Russell but otherwise falls limp courtesy of too many corny gags.

A film to embody the Eighties, and justify them

Groucho Reviews

A 'B'-movie-style Western meets Eastern, a supernatural 'chopsocky' fantasy with leading man Kurt Russell doing a feature-length impression of a dead movie star. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. [Blu-ray]

Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star

The high-octane action comedy takes all that was worthwhile from decades of B-flicks and distills it into a maximum-concentration explosion of cinematic TNT.

Imperfect, yes...but still great cultish fun with Kurt Russell.

Loads of fun from the usually strained John Carpenter.

A misunderstood, underrated blast of a movie from genre king John Carpenter. As imaginitive and fun as anything he's done.

Kung fu, monsters, sorcery, 18-wheelers, swordfights and world-saving heroics against impossible odds: What more could you want?

A inspired and slightly unhinged homage to grindhouse B-moviemaking.

The film is probably best characterized by a comment from a review quoted in the DVD commentary by Kurt Russell: 'Absolutely fabulous and terminally hip.'
