Plot Synopsis:
Truck driver, anti-hero Jack Burton gets involved in much mayhem in San Francisco. Evil, ancient Lo Pan must marry a woman with green eyes ("Do you know how hard it is to find a Chinese woman with green eyes?") in order to retain his vitality and youth. He kidnaps Miao Yin (Wang's fiancee) and Gracie Law (Kim Cattrall), much to the dismay of Jack and Wang, who spend the rest of the movie trying to get them back.

Favorite Moments:

  • The Three Storms, spreading violence, mysticism and fantastic hair thoughout Little China.
