Big Trouble In Little China movie review from the Salty Nerds have them perplexed at this awesome cult classic movie from John Carpenter and Kurt Russell.  Kurt Russell plays the legendary Jack Burton who teams up with Dennis Dun and Victor Wong to fight the cursed Chinese sorcerer David Lo Pan (played by James Hong ) all the while romancing Kim Cattrall and dropping epic one-liners.  

Big Trouble In Little China is ahead of its time in many ways, and part of its box office failure was because the studio didn't know how to market such an off-the-wall movie.  But John Carpenter has such a subversive take on typical 1908s action movies that this film is quite brilliant once you "get the joke."
