4. Jack Burton – Big Trouble In Little China
Big Trouble In Little China is one of those movies that could only exist in the ’80s, even if they’re trying to make a remake. A lot of that has to do with the look of the film, the underworld in the middle of San Francisco, and martial arts, but let’s be real, Kurt Russell’s Jack Burton is a badass through and through. Sure, he doesn’t get a lot of things right the first time, and yeah, he did kind of fall into the plot, but the hair, the tank top, and the attitude make up for it.
Ultimate Moment Of Badassery: I’m just going to say that Jack Burton catching a knife and throwing it back directly in the middle of David Lo Pan’s forehead should do the trick.
