Synopsis
All-American truck driver Jack Burton must help his friend, Wang Chi, rescue his green-eyed girlfriend from bandits in San Francisco's Chinatown. In order to save her, the two men must go into the mysterious underworld beneath Chinatown, where they battle kung-fu masters and face a 2000-year-old ancient sorcerer named Lo Pan who mercilessly presides over an empire of spirits.
