Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a simple man who doesn’t believe in ghosts or magic until he’s swept into a mind-boggling adventure deep within Chinatown’s mysterious underworld. Burton’s pal, Wang Chi (Dennis Dun), is trying to rescue his kidnapped fiancée. Egg Shen (Victor Wong), an enigmatic tour-bus driver seems to know a lot about ancient Chinese magic for a simple tour-bus driver. They do battle with an outlandish array of human and inhuman adversaries under the command of Lo Pan (James Hong), a 2000-year-old evil magician who has the power to transform himself from a wheelchair-bound old man into a seven-foot-tall mystical menace.

  • A movie with everything

    By Avidmovfan
    Burton’s wise cracking, 80s martial arts glory, characters who are there only for exposition, and a line up of villains that can’t be beat! (well, *spoiler* they do...kinda)
  • Amazing- A must see!

    This is one of my all time favorite movies! Kurt Russell is a great actor. This is a classic in my household! My family always used to gather around the tv and watch it! “It’s all in the reflexes,” and “the check is in the mail.” Those are my favorite lines from the movie. Love every minute of it! From beginning to end this movie is simply the best!
  • Disappointing.

    While the tight focus on a few characters allowed for character development and showcased great acting, the movie failed to convey the scale of the battle, and the non-linear presentation of events was confusing at first.
  • Amazing
