  1. Palmat's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Zany and goofy movie with Russell on fine form as a doofus anti-hero for the ages. A crazy martial arts adventure with laughs and action to enchant and enthrall in equal measures.

  2. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Rewatch. This film is like comfort food. Everyone in it is likable and you can tell they had fun making it.

  3. Gabriele Malagoli's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

  4. Udo N. Owen's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    "Big Trouble" ist das uneheliche Kind von "Unfassbar Cool" und "Unsagbar Beknackt" und definitiv ein pures Kind der 80er. Politisch massiv inkorrekt und dennoch ziemlich unterhaltsam! Tolles Setting, grandiose Effekte, leider zu viel Rumgehampel, ein Carpenter-typisch geiler Score... Irgendwie schräg, irgendwie super, 6/10

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Film de commande, cette oeuvre de Carpenter reste fort moyenne ! www.cinefiches.com

  6. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Fun to see macho hero Kurt Russell making a fool out of himself as a stupid and useless truck driver loser with a lot in his mouth and nothing in his brain fighting supernatural kung-fu fighters. Like the whimsy feel and how it mixes fantasy into it and there are some fun FX in the film. The ending ask for a sequel that sadly will never come.

  8. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    [J. Brew Recommendations: Day 4/7] So on one hand I do like the movie for what it is. I admire that Jack Burton seems to simultaneously have no clue what he's doing and act like he knows exactly what he's doing. It's a type of bravado you don't see in many leading protagonists. As a fan of martial arts films though, the action is a bit subpar; if you have such a wackjob plot, you need good action to make up for it.

  9. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    3.6 An entertaining romp with Carpenter in 80´s Indiana Jones-mood. One of the few action comedies I know that are really funny.

  10. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Its foundation for its plot/character starts very strong, then the plot gets clumsier in its telling as it moves along. The dialogue is witty and snappy, and the actor's have great charisma, but its throwing-of-every-idea-it-can-into-the-fray creates over-stimulation and choppiness. It moving at a 100 mph makes it cram too much into its scant runtime, never giving time for its obstacles and conflicts to truly settle.

  11. Rafael Zen's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    One star for action, action, action, action! Another one for the art direction - it really stablishes a mood for this chinese underworld. Harmless entertainment, but oh so entertaining.

  12. Bob's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    It comes as a mash-up that works better with individual parts rather than the entire whole. As a movie, it comes little too schizophrenic for bigger audience, which is probably the reason for its commercial failure. But, the pieces that were so outwardly crazy and daringly deranged, earned it a cult status - and a must-see example of big budget cinema meets exploitation film-making.

    i'm a reasonable guy. but i've just experienced some unreasonable things.

  16. The Macho King's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    This is the main film in Carpenter's oeuvre where you can clearly see the degree of influence that Howard Hawks had on him. Not to mention Kurt Russell is basically a caricature of John Wayne, which is awesome.

  17. Catarina Silva's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    the most anti climatic ending of cinema's history, probably

  18. SlinkyLi's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Romping about with pleasant surprises, 80s quips, and some great John Carpenter tunes.

  19. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

  20. Aardsy's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Insane and offensive. By design, of course.

  21. corycorycorycory's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    "First time you ever plug somebody?" "......'course not."

  22. unearthly_red's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    the set design was pretty cool; fun to watch

  23. Emilie Sovis's rating of the film Big Trouble in Little China

    Hilarious, bombastic, and foundational for many of the over-the-top tropes now common today (though lacking the tongue-in-cheek creativity of Carpenter)
