Critics reviews

This 1986 masterpiece of generic potpourri is a whole lot of movie packed into its brisk 99-minute runtime… There is talk of green flames, Chinese black magic, monsters, ghosts, and sorcery, all building up to a fantastical tale of mythic proportions. This introduction gives Big Trouble in Little China a good deal to live up to, and amazingly, it succeeds.
