Escape From New York  

USA 1981 Directed by: John Carpenter. Starring: Kurt Russell, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Pleasence, Isaac Hayes, Harry Dean Stanton, Adrienne Barbeau.

This Carpenter classic is much better than his sequel, Escape from L.A. The plot take place in the future (1997), in New York. The crime rate in USA rises 400 percent, and Manhattan has been a big security prison surrounded by a high wall. There are no guards in the prison, and the criminals lives free in the world they made. The presidents plane crash landing in Manhattan, and he get caught by the prisoners. Snake Plissken, a former war hero, now imprison for a bank robbery, must rescue him within 24 hours. If he fails, Snake will die because they have injected something weird in him, which makes his lungs explode when the time turns out. Be prepared for thrilling action.

John Carpenter painting up a very suggestive and threatening picture of New York, there the law of the jungle rules. Kurt Russell is, as usual good as the stony Snake Plissken. The music and the sound effects, which Carpenter does himself to keep down the budget, are also very good. There are some scenes that reminds you that this is a b-film, but it┤s the only flaw I can think of.
