Jack Burton, a tough-talking, wisecracking truck driver has his hum-drum life on the road thrown into a supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiancee is kidnapped. Speeding to the rescue, Jack finds himself deep beneath San Francisco's Chinatown, in a murky, creature-filled world ruled by Lo Pan, a 2,000-year-old magician who mercilessly presides over an empire of spirits. Dodging demons and facing baffling terrors, Jack battles his way through Lo Pan's dark domain in a full-throttle, action-riddled ride to rescue the girl.

Kurt Russell is in his element as a macho idiot who stumbles into an age old Chinese power struggle. The story is as ludicrous as many a fantasy tale, but at least here there's not a teenage wizard in sight as is the modern norm for such stories. In any case, where Harry Potter takes eight movies to vanquish Voldermort, Jack Burton needs only 20 seconds against the immortal Lo-Pan. On blu-ray the picture quality is a vivid and detailed affair, but not as dramatic as the sound. I'll admit I wasn't expecting much, so imagine my shock at the dynamics at play here coupled with the depth of the bass. This really is an all-encompassing mix that deftly throws effects left right and centre. Extras are no slouch either, best of which is the enthusiastic and informative commentary by Kurt Russell and John Carpenter.

Oldy but for sure a goldy. Really enjoy'd it back in the day. By today's standards it's old but still very entertaining. Ol' Jack Burton, it's all in the reflexes.
