Nicholas Gregory'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.
