Wanted to like it, as it's so iconic. But it was barely in the so bad, it's good category. Pretty silly, yet I fell asleep halfway through.

Brimming with resonating energy, packed with humor, and fueled with action-based veins, John Carpenter's cult-classic proves to be one of the best of its precise genre, with fantastic performances from the entire cast, and a stunning production design for its time.

I have seen this movie approx. 96 times since it's premiere and it never gets old. Action, comedy, adventure. It doesn't get better than this.

Funny, but soo Fucking weird.


My original review above. This movie is a masterpiece of the bold funny and strange. An '80s western like no other boldly going its own path with some of the most iconic and hilarious characters and one liners ever put to screen.

I give this an 90/A-.

Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

Ole Jack always says.. what the hell! This movie really shook the pillars for me as a kid and continues to as an adult.

Very attractive women in this movie. John Carpenter know how to find them and cast them I guess. The lightning special effects were awesome. Looks so cool. That girl with green eyes, the white one, is really pretty. I could stare into het eyes for years.

Kurt Russell's sarcastic American humor is refreshening throughout the movie. Pretty odd, whacky, and silly movie. Pretty fun movie that goes quick.

This is the greatest thing ever. I can't even imagine not seeing. People who haven't seen this must have a deep sense of emptiness in their lives.

4/5. Big Trouble in Little China is a hell of a fun movie. Fantastic effects. funny characters, a ridiculous plot, what more could you want? It's a B-movie that knows exactly what it is. If you haven't seen it, check it out.

Makes me question if all 80's movies were parodies of themselves. Five stars, F*** It! my favorite part, the whole thing. Realistic job of capturing 80s Asian American life. speachless.

Typical 80's Fantasy/Action movie, Corny dialogue and poor acting by some of the cast, The effects look so dated, It had a few fun action packed scenes and Kurt Russell was pretty good but the whole story was too farfetched for me to enjoy at times.

A fun and weird little movie. Nice and silly tale about multiculturalism in America and the White guy definitely isn't always the hero.

ok hands down THE movie to sum up the 80s, I mean action, comedy, romance, sci-fi, Kung Fu and Kurt Russell say no more. I wasn't born when this got released but I did grow up watching it on video (VHS) and I loved it (still do) as I got older I was shocked to find out the movie flopped at the box office, as most movies that were made in the 80s were nonsense (I mean mannequin and splash....nuff said) if you find your self stuck one night for something to watch give it go, it's seriously hard not to fall in love with the characters and the soundtrack. And remember if your not back by Dawn we'll call the president.

A classic Kurt Russel film. A mix of action, comedy, romance and Chinese mythology. It makes for a very entertaining movie.

A fun and entertaining ride worth taking over and over again

That was ridiculous, ultra cheesy, bonkers and way too over-the-top...which is why I liked it. Kurt Russell is awesome.

If there is one thing Jack Burton knows, it is how to make a great movie!

Definitely not my favorite Carpenter film. This one uses elaborate sets and expensive special effects in lieu of good storytelling and interesting characters. If it weren't for Kurt Russel's hilarious and incredibly fun performance, this film would be completely forgettable.
