Episode 166: Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

maverickEpisode 166: Recorded LIVE at Michigan ComicCon in Detroit, Michigan! It's action comedies with a supernatural twist for this pairing, starting with the first of two films, both from 1986! In "Big Trouble in Little China," we discuss director John Carpenter's 9th feature film outing, and his fourth time working with leading man Kurt Russell, who plays sidekick Jack Burton! Did we say sidekick? Yes, because the actual hero of the film, story-wise, is Dennis Dun as Wang Chi! This duo find themselves enmeshed in a battle to save two young women, lawyer Gracie Law (Kim Cattrall) and Miao Yin (Suzee Pai) from the evil clutches of David Lo Pan (James Hong), an ancient sorcerer with an obsession for women with green eyes! Add in a reporter, a local business owner, a Chinatown tour guide, and a trio of elementally-charged fighters known simply as the Three Storms, and you have a rollicking supernatural adventure film like no other! Then, throw in the fact that Kurt Russel is absolutely playing against type, and you get a modern classic that could only have come from the mind of John Carpenter!
