John Carpenter knows nothing of the future and it doesn’t matter. What can I tell you about the film that time and the lesser “Escape from L.A.” didn’t tell you. Snake Plissken is a war vet turned criminal who gets nabbed after a bank robbery. The government infects him with a virus to force him to infiltrate the New York City prison complex to find the President. Isaac Hayes shows up as the villainous Duke of New York in what was surely his greatest performance. Donald Pleasence still remains my favorite in the film as the gutless President.
Release Date: 04/21/15
