Directed by
Johnny Carpenter

John Carpenter's fun martial arts romp keeps its tongue firmly in its cheek throughout. Kurt Russell plays Jack Burton, who agrees to pick up a friend's girlfriend, Miao Yin, from the airport. But she's kidnapped in front of him, and he finds out that she's been abducted by sorcerer Lo Pan, the host of the spirit of an ancient Chinese warlord. He wants her unique green eyes to rejuvenate his spirit, and Burton has just hours to track down his lair and free Yin. With a nod to the Indiana Jones franchise, Carpenter enjoys setting up one exciting, exotic set piece after another, while Russell's performance recalls the all-action, wise-cracking Snake Plissken from Escape from New York.
