Reviews
Mine: A fun idea, that never quite gets going. Lacks wit. Not as good as it should have been.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Blowhard trucker Russell finds himself knee-deep in Chinatown intrigue (and mumbo-jumbo) when a friend's fiancée is kidnapped right in front of his eyes. High-tech INDIANA JONES-style adventure has heavy tongue-in-cheek attitude, but everything else about it is heavy, too... including Russell's John Wayne-ish swagger. Good electronic music score by director Carpenter. Panavision.
