Classic 18: Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991)

Not to be confused with Big Trouble in Little China (15 – bleeurrgghh splat splat splat, uuuuuhhhhh, BLEEAAUURRGhh splat splat splot heeeeeuuuur, hooooooo, huuuuurrrr RRRRRRBLEEEUUAARRGHH BLUUUEEAARRGHH SPLAT SPLITTER SPLOTT SPLOT SPLOT), Showdown in Little Tokyo is an ’80s action movie (even though it was made in 1991) like no other.

Well, actually, it’s like loads of others, but it’s one of the best of the bunch.  It’s got Dolph Lundgren (from 18s like The Killing Machine (seen), Universal Soldier: Regeneration (seen), Universal Soldier (seen), and Dark Angel (seen)), Brandon Lee (Bruce’s son – from 18s like The Crow (seen) and Rapid Fire (seen)) and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (from 18s like The Art of War (seen), Vampires (seen), and Nemesis (seen)) and directed by Mark L. Lester (who also directed 18s like Class of 1999 (seen) and Commando (seen)).  Four reasons why it’s worth watching, clearly. (more…)
