John carptenter's Escape from L.A. has a parallel story to that of his earlier film "Escape from new york". Kurt Russell is back as the Badass he was in New york just this time theres new co-stars and a diferent city. This time steve Buscemi is Ernest Borgnine's shoes this time around instead of being the cab driver he's Hollywood ED the guy who knows the street. The same could be said about Peter... read more

Snake Plissken is one of the most badass characters ever created and it is not a surprise that, after all these years, the finally decided to make a sequel to his first adventure. It is probably the most charismatic character in Kurt Russel's career and, once again, he delivered a solid performance. The main issue is that, unfortunately, the plot is way too similar to the first installment. I mean... read more

"Kurt Russell returns as Snake Plissken in the sequel to Escape From New York. The plot is basically rehashed from the original which wouldn't be too bad if the movie didn't have some truly terrible CGI effects. Russell is great as Plissken and he slips back into character as if they'd never had been a gap of 15 years between the original and its sequel. Steve Buscemi, Bruce Campbell and Peter Fonda give good performances as well. Don't expect too much here, it's just a b-movie with shoddy effect"

“"I shut down the third world, you win they lose. I shut down America, they win, you lose. The more things change, the more they stay the same."

Arriving fifteen years after the low-budget cult classic Escape from New York, 1996's Escape from L.A. is the very definition of fun, trashy entertainment. See, whereas the original 1981 movie was a bleak, gritty post-apocalyptic tale, this follow-up is a campy, deliriously over-the-top actioner, and the result is better than most critics are willing to admit. Unfortunately, the movie entered cinemas to little fanfare, and earned only $25 million at the box office, a disastrous amount considering its $50 million budget. Even though Escape from L.A. is far from perfect, it's enjoyable enough, and action fans should find it worth at least a” read more

"August 18 "What's it going to be, Plissken? Them or us?" "I shut down the third world, you win they lose. I shut down America, they win, you lose. The more things change, the more they stay the same." I actually thought this was an underrated sequel. I'd even say that I enjoyed it a bit more than the original. Kurt Russell was still good as Snake Plissken and all the other cast members were good too. I really wasn't expecting much from this sequel, but I enjoyed this sequel more than most pe"

"Katsottu: 11.7.2013 En tiedä mitä vittua täh? Oliko tämän tarkoitus olla hauskakin elokuva. Meno oli ainakin vitun coolia, ja paskaa CGI:tä pukkasi joka tuutista niin vitullinen määrä, ettei mitään rajaa. Snakea vituttaa edelleen kaikki."

"30.3. Jatko-osa on välillä kuin Verhoevenia katsoisi. Pako L.A.:sta on keskisormi pystyssä tehtyä yhteiskuntakritiikkiä, joka menee kovuudessaan ja CGI:n rumuudessaan jonnekin surrealistisen taiteen ja repeilymaratonin välimaastoon. Mikään ei edelleenkään kiinnosta elokuvan hahmoja, ja muutokset tehdään lopulta vain oman välinpitämättömyyden vuoksi. American Spirit -tupakat huuleen ja kaaos päälle. Vapaus kuoli kauan sitten näiden elokuvien maailmassa."

"A terrible sequel to the great Escape from New York. This film should never have been made. Don't let it affect your judgement of Escape From New York though as it is a real classic of dystopian cinema."

"First Viewing Rented Library DVD I had heard some horrible things about this film and holy shit they were true. Almost everything about this film does not work at all. It's almost as if he was trying to remake the original by fucking up everything that made that film wonderful. One could say it was nice to see Snake in a film again I just wish it wasn't a film that punches him so damn hard in the nuts. Even the cameo's don't help one bit. Anyone who thinks this is better or on par with the f"
