Two-fisted meathead Jack Burton helps out his Chinese friend Wang Chi when Wang’s green-eyed fiancée is kdnapped, in rapid succession, by a San Francisco street gang, a band of martial artists and three evil spirits in the service of David Lo Pan, the two thousand-year-old godfather of Chinatown, who needs to marry or sacrifice the girl if he is to lift an ancient curse and rule the universe.
It's easy to appreciate the movie's colour and vigour, even if it's difficult to know exactly what the heck is going on.
