I think it HAS to be where they're walking under China Town and that monster pops out of a hole in the wall and grabs that guy. I mean, seriously, it's so cheesy looking it's embarrassing. I've never watched the film once with anyone who hasn't laughed at that scene and said it looks terrible.....I wonder if it's meant to look that fake?hahaha!

I don't know - I kinda liked that part; I think Lopan getting run over was pretty lame...I mean, he wasn't hit that hard, but he doesn't go anywhere, he just falls straight back. I guess since he is a dream and all that it makes sense, but I think that could have been done differently.

I agree, no parts are lame, they're there for reasons that JC, Kurt, and WD Richter all know.

No, don't get me wrong I don't think any parts of the film are "lame" or rubbish really, it's just that one scene is rather cheesy cos it's like a monster from a 1950's B horror flick Laughing

I think the lamest part had nothing to do with how they made it back in the day but how things are now. If people were in the airport now doing shiat like that, they would get tackled, beat down, and skirmished!

Yeah, I've often wondered how those thugs got in the airport with the knives, etc. I poke fun at this in the South Park BTLC - read the sign as they approach the airport!

Ya Josh, I did notice that the airport sign said 'No guns and we mean it' or something like that! Made me laugh!

Lame was a bit of a hard term...


what I meant to say was the special effects in that part were a bit uncreative (considering some of the awesomeness that exists in other parts of the movie)

I guess the neon lights in the wedding scene was my only hang up. Not really a hang up, just thought they could have done something different with all that money spent on lights. I still love the set.

Nothing in the film bugs me. Most of the creature effects in the film are kinda cheesy, but I assume it was intentional on John Carpenter's part. After all, this is the same guy who directed The Thing, which had great creature effects throughout.
