1986 Certificate: 15


After the guts and grit of their earlier ventures (Escape From New York; The Thing), Kurt Russell and director John Carpenter hook up for a lighter, if equally actionful, fantasy caper that pitches Russell's rugged truck driver into the supernatural gang war raging in San Francisco's Chinatown. Kim Cattrall is the nosy lawyer who finds herself swept up in the typhoon of organised crime, martial arts and black magic. Bustling with energy and bravado, it's essentially the cult cousin to Indiana Jones.
