Violent 1980s martial-arts movie is a campy guilty pleasure.

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
April 6, 2010
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
August 12, 2009
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]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

July 22, 2005
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.

It's a goofy mix of comic books, kung-fu, and Indiana Jones in a movie that left most people scratching their heads.

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