Dir. John Carpenter. 1986, 99 mins. 35mm. With Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall. John Carpenter had long wanted to pay homage to the martial arts film and this rushed-into-production schlock-fest turned into the perfect vehicle. Kurt Russell plays a trucker drawn into the nefarious San Francisco Chinese underworld in search of a friend’s fiancé only to come crashing into supernatural forces beyond his ken. A commercial failure in its day, this is one of Carpenter’s most purely loveable, action-stuffed outings.
