Kurt Russell is a cocky truck driver, who drives through Chinatown with his friend and they witness a rival gang fight between two rival gangs in an alley way, until three strange martial artists show up and start beating both gangs. Kurt Russell and his friend leave Russell's truck and go to a local oriental eatery, and find out, that the three martial artists they witnessed fighting, kidnapped his friend's girlfriend for a oriental master who is very old and needs women with green eyes to become young again. Kim Katrall also stars as a reporter who helps Kurt Russell and his friend find his girlfriend. With the help of the wise eatery owner, they all break into the masters layer and try to rescue the girlfriend before its too late.
Continuity mistake: When Jack Burton and the rest of the gang escape from the Wing Kong Trade Centre the first time, the guards fire at the left side of the bus breaking the windows and making holes in the bodywork. When we see the bus a few seconds later as it is driving away, it appears undamaged.tw_stuart
Trivia: Kim Cattrall was surprised when she got to the set for the prison scene one morning, as no one told her she would be hogtied for the entire scene (in the story, it was due to a deleted scene when she made trouble for her guards). She endured it like a professional, occasionally having her gag removed so she could drink water. When asked by John Carpenter whether or not she was uncomfortable, she simply replied 'I've been in tighter situations than this!'
