Given that I'm a fan of martial arts movies, Kim Cattrall, and Kurt "Action Man" Russell, I really don't know how I missed seeing Big Trouble in Little China in the theaters when it first came out, but I did.

When the email informing me that it was coming out on Blu-ray arrived, I almost passed on reviewing it as not being Science Fiction or Fantasy, but when I found out that it included Chinese mysticism and black magic, I was able to rectify that in time to receive a copy.
