Retro Review: Big Trouble In Little China

The world needs more movies like this. Too bad we're probably destined for a remake instead. John Carpenter was in fine form when he made Big Trouble In Little China. Not only did he cash in on the mid-80s martial arts craze, but he threw in Chinese spirits, monsters, campy humour, Victor Wong and a smoking hot Kim Cattrall. And who doesn't like Kurt Russell at the top of his game? This is a fun popcorn movie, one of the best in Carpenter's cannon, and guaranteed to put a smile on any true film geek's face. A Good from The Basement on this one. "The cheque is in the mail."
