100 Word Review – Big Trouble in Little China

My wife was amazed I hadn’t seen this one, describing it as “so bad it’s good”.

Could it hold up without nostalgia?

Yep! It’s a crazy little film that risks collapsing underneath some supreme overacting, an odd mixture of both too much and not enough exposition, and plenty of slapstick.

Russell is full of bravado in a story isn’t afraid to show him up as an idiot whilst Cattrall’s gusto outweighs her acting skill significantly. Like Russell’s character we’re thrown in at the deep in and asked to believe in some pretty out-there stuff.

Utterly ridiculous but also very rewarding.
