Video Notes:
Buckaroo Banzai is a rock-star/brain-surgeon / comic-book-hero/samurai/ etc who along with his group, the Hong Kong Cavaliers, must stop evil creatures from the 8th dimension (all named John) who are trying to conquer our dimension. Though the ending of the film promised a sequel, financing problems halted its production. Richter's screenplay for the follow-up film was reworked and later became John Carpenter's BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA.
