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.



  • Mortal Kombat owes its existence to this movie!

    When I saw this for sale I brought it.
  • Greatest movie of all time!

    By JustWantToBeEntertained
    This is the greatest movie of all time. Who tells you, Jack Burton that’s who. All the 80’s action, fx’s and one liners you could hope for.
  • “Eddie, but he...”. “He’s got a crush on you.”

    By broodingboy
    Wang Chi: “Nothing or double, this knife cuts this bottle in half.” Margo: “I must be so monumentally naive” Eddie: “You are.” Egg Shen: Black blood of the earth. Egg Shen: What it sees, Lo Pan knows. Jack Burton: “I...I don’t get this at all—“ Lo Pan: “Shut up Mr. Burton! You were not brought upon this world to get it.”
  • Great!

    Love this movie! One of John Carpenter’s best films! It’s campy, fun, cool with the visual effects and crazy characters! Kurt Russell is great in this.
  • Favorite most watched movie

    By Scottg1210
    This is my favorite most watched movie of my life. There are tons of movie’s I’ve watched repeatedly but none as much as this. I love the concept. The hero of the movie is basically the sidekick and doesn’t know it. They don’t make them like this anymore.

  • 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)
