Escape From New York
Vastly entertaining action movie from thrill-master John Carpenter. Don't think too much about the ridiculous plot but just sit back and enjoy seeing New York as a top security prison(!) in which the President becomes stranded. Enter our hero, himself a criminal, who has less than 24 hours to rescue the man from the White House or die as two mini-bombs in his neck explode. Kurt Russell is terrific as the rescuer.
escape from New York
Good film good actors and plenty of action and a good plot i have film on VHS but wanted it on dvd aswell. I also have the follow up escape from L,A which is not quite as good in my opinion.
A Cult Classic
Wot can I say this film is Fantastic. The basic plot is an Ex Maverick Marine Snake Pliskin (Kurt Russell) is sent in to New York (Now a huge Prison) to rescue the President who has to deliver an address that will save the nation. The twist to the story is Snake has 24 Hours to complete his mission otherwise he's a dead man. If you like dark, Gritty films you will love this,
