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

"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... read more

" Snake Plissken, is back! And this time, he has to Escape From L.A.! An L.A. separated from the mainland by an earthquake. More or less, it’s pretty much Escape From New York, but it’s in L.A. It’s an ok film, but the original movie is a lot better. There are cameos from Peter Fonda, and Bruce Campbell, and Steve Buscemi has a memorable role, too. If anything it’s great, seeing John Carpenter, with Kurt Russell, again. Box office wise, it did average, and critics gave mixed reviews. "

"7.10. SkyShowtime Mua jostain syystä huoletti, että jatko-osa olisi vain jotenkin vesitetty ja lapsille sopiva variantti. Tämä huoli osoittautui turhaksi heti, koska maailmassa (Amerikassa) on kutakuinkin kaikki päin vittua ja juuri mikään ei kiinnosta yhtään ketään. Snake Plissken saa tutunoloisen keikan, eikä tätäkään kiinnosta, kuin vittuilu. Eli lähtöasetelmiltaan lupaava, jossei mitenkään yllättävä. Paitsi outoihin odotuksiini nähden. Kaamea cgi naurattaa, kuten rii"
