Big Trouble in Little China Reviews

Page 1 of 2
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.

Cinema Crazed

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.

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]

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.
