Watch Now: ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Starring a Very Confused Kurt Russell
space
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Jack Burton

There’s no doubt that John Carpenter‘s 1986 kung fu-action-comedy-horror-fantasy Big Trouble in Little China is a universally-beloved, genre-bending cult classic, or at least it should be (and boy do I love using dashes in my sentences). But doesn’t that plot seem more than slightly weird and overly complicated to you? It must have seemed that way to star Kurt Russell because his character, swaggering blowhard trucker Jack Burton, spends most of the movie in a state of confusion. One plausible explanation for Burton’s constant befuddlement could be that Russell never even saw a script, as the video you can watch here below makes a strong case for.

Then again I never cared if Jack knew just what the hell was going on. Give the man a gun and point him in the direction of the bad guys and let him kick some ass. Either way the wings of liberty never lose a feather.

  1. Ashamed to say, but I haven’t actually seen this movie.  (ducks and hides from angry pitchfork-wielding mob)  But I’m always willing to check out things labeled “cult classics,” so Netflix, here I come.  Thanks for the rec!

    Smiles!
