Escape From New York

"Boasting one of the most iconic characters ever in Plissken, and an effective sci-fi set-up, this is entertainment of the highest order." - Empire

When the President crash lands on the island of Manhattan, now a maximum security prison, Snake Plissken is sent in to rescue him...or die trying. John Carpenter’s crafts a detailed, lived-in post-apocalyptic world, and inhabits it with memorable characters played by previous collaborator’s (THE FOG’s Adrienne Barbeau, HALLOWEEN’s Donald Pleasence), genre heavyweights (THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY’s Lee Van Cleef, SHAFT’s Isaac Hayes), and reinvents former Disney child star Kurt Russell as one of the ‘80s most badass action heroes. The result is a sci-fi action thriller where the rules are simple: Once you go in, you don’t come out.

"The director’s rule-breaking action adventure saw him doing his own thing. He wants to show the audience a good time and he excels at it here, squeezing every last dime of the budget for Mad Max -style mayhem and providing one of his best and moodiest scores." - Scott Tobias, The Gaurdian
