3.0 out of 5 stars One of my All-Time favorite movies., Dec 23 2003
This review is from: Escape From New York (Special Edition Collector's Set) (DVD)
"Snake, what are you doing?" "I'm playing with myself." Is one of the classic lines from this John Carpenter classic. Arguably Carpenters best film outside of Halloween, Escape from New York is a great dark futuristic movie about a time when crime is so bad the government turned all of Staten Island into a prison with no gaurds and no order, the convicts are left to fend for themselves. Kurt Russel plays Snake Plisken, a cool, bad a** convicted felon who is hired by the government to go into the prison to rescue the president who's been held hostage by the inmates. They put a device in his neck that will blow his head off if he tries to escape or fails his mission. He is dropped into the ultimate bad neighborhood run by the hardest, most dangerous, vile and ha-nus criminals imaginable and the clock is ticking.
This is a fun and exciting movie and is one of the all time classic 80's sci fi movies. Its about time a special edition of this film has been made, the previous dvd release only had a trailer on it. This is much, much better.
