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

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 ... read more

"19.2. I wanted to watch a John Carpenter film and only found this at our house. The CGI was ugly, the film felt a bit overlong and Kurt Russell looked like he's smelling a fart, but on the other hand the ninetiesness of the whole thing was quite delightful and it was nice to see A.J. Langer aka Rayanne Graff in a movie role. "

“"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

"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"

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, you could almost consider it a remake instead of a sequel, seriously. I guess the die-hard fans must have been very glad but, honestly, I thought it was rather disappointing. I mean, it could have been awesome to see Snake Plissken in some new adventures in this doomed futuristic world but I guess, it wasn't meant to be. By the way, in my opinion, it was also the last decent flick directed by Jo” read more

"Watched 29.6 ---------- Melkeinpä suora kopio Escape from New York:sta, eli ei mitään uutta, mut enpä usko että tää uudella juonikuviolla olis toiminutkaan. Carpenter ohjaa sopivan letkeällä tyylillä ja Russellin suorituksessa ei valittamista. Viihdyttävä."
