Big Trouble in Little China is the big cult hit, and it enjoys a comfortable spot in cinematic history thanks to its overwhelming resurgence in praise, years after its theatrical release. Originally conceptualized and written as a Western before being rewritten. Put in a more modern setting, later drafts kept the elements of Oriental mysticism and Chinese fantasy. Once Carpenter was on board, he took the genre and ran with it all the way, planning to fulfill his dream of making a martial arts film. An action-comedy-fantasy grounded in a realistic setting, featuring many symbols and figures of Chinese lore, Big Trouble intended to juxtapose the ancient Chinese legends with American values. With a huge cast of Asian Americans, beyond Hong and Leong, but also including George Cheung, David Dun, Victor Wong, Suzee Pai, and many others, the feel of the film remains largely authentic despite the fantastic tone. Actor Jim Lau was instrumental in getting the Asian American community in San Francisco involved and in support of the film.
