Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a tough-talking, wisecracking truck driver whose humdrum life on the road takes a sudden supernatural tailspin when his best friend's fiancé (Kim Cattrall) is kidnapped. Speeding to the rescue, Jack finds himself deep beneath San Francisco's Chinatown in a murky creature-filled world ruled by Lo Pan (James Hong), a 2000-year-old magician who mercilessly presides over an empire of spirits. Dodging demons and facing baffling terrors, Jack battles his way through Lo Pan's dark domain in a full throttle action riddled ride to rescue the girl.
