    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★★½

    This movie is so wonderful.

    Great world building. Bizarre, unique characters. Lovingly ridiculous dialog. Great comedic timing.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fun MI movie, but I think I preferred the previous one.

    It had a lot of fun moments, but if you are familiar with the series, a lot of the moments are predictable. When a movie like this is predictable, it can feel slow.

    The action was great though. Definitely the best parts of (and vast majority of) the movie. Unlike the plot, the action scenes are unpredictable. Lots of "oh wow ok, that actually happened, now what's he going…
