Big Trouble in Little China is a movie that you really can't take all that serious or you're just not going to buy into this. It has been at least 20 years since I have seen this from start to finish and I gotta tell ya, it still doesn't make all that much sense. Even as a kid, it never really made much sense other than offering up excuses for what at the time were some cool looking effects. But now, it's a no-brainer that it's gonna look old and out of date by today's standards. I was a huge fan of the movie back in the day and an even bigger fan of Kurt Russell. He could do no wrong in my eyes and I loved this movie.

Watching the movie today, with the hokey story line that springs up out of nowhere and the creaky effects, it has lost a lot of that appeal from when I was a kid. So, with all these negatives, how come I still enjoy the movie somewhat...even if its not as I once remembered it to be? Easy. It starts and ends with Kurt. This is far from his best role and I can rattle off 15 other, far more superior films of his right now. But it's his character of Jack Burton and his false macho bravado to cover up the fact that he really doesn't know what he is doing that gives the movie its humor. Definitely worth a Rent if you have never seen this before and it may play better for newcomers because it will be fresh as oppose to someone that played this movie ad nauseum when it came out.
