You know what ol’ Jack Burton says at a time like this? Buy the sucker!
Martin Scorsese had Robert De Niro. James Cameron had Arnold Schwarzenegger. And John Carpenter had Kurt Russell. Together, Carpenter and Russell would make five features together, including Escape from New York and The Thing and a TV docudrama about Elvis Presley. While The Thing will remain a horror classic, it is their film Big Trouble in Little China that remains my go-to Carpenter-Russell pairing. A martial-arts adventure comedy, Big Trouble sees Russell playing a real man’s man in Jack Burton, a truck driver who, along with his friend Wang (Dennis Dun), venture into the mysterious underworld beneath Chinatown where they must go up against the ancient sorcerer Lo Pan (James Hong).
