Big Trouble in little China Short Review

bigtroublecover4 Stars for a great conversion of the 1986 Cult Classic.
John Carpenter's, (Escape From New York) classic story of the all American truck driver who becomes a hero.
Jack Burton, (Kurt Russell, Stargate) is the truck driver who hauls pigs to New York's China Town where he wins more than a thousand dollars off his friend Wang Chi, (Dennis Dun, The Last Emperor).

As they wait in arrivals, Jack sees a very pretty girl who Wang tells Jack that he should avoid - Gracie Law, ( Kim Cattrall, Sex in the City).
Suddenly Chinese gangsters appear and snatch Miao and a chase ensues which leads Jack and Wang into the seedier part of China town. Jack's truck gets stopped by a funeral that suddenly turns into a bloodbath as a rival gang shows up and the bullets start flying.
