"Escape From New York" has a very interesting premise and, despite the predictably outdated 'futurism', the intentions are appreciated. It looks like the budget restricted what Carpenter could show on screen, and that's a shame as it deprives us of certain needed climaxes. The weight that the sketchy characters cannot carry is arguably seen through by the good action and the presence of Kurt Russell and Lee Van Cleef, securing this film as an above-par thriller but with some potential wasted.

A little over the top action, but still a dark film which is considered by many a cult classic now.

Awesome B-movie! The premise is so childish and implausible yet delivered with completely straight-faced gall and wonderfully dark pathos. Carpenter has a distinct talent at overcoming budgetary limitations and mediocre writing with clever design and rich atmosphere, managing to sell the ridiculous setting/characters with ease. His creative and unconventional style coupled with a charismatic ensemble of actors turn a pretty boring underwritten script into a really fun unique experience.

I can sense that this was well done, and something that seems like it would be a satire on 80s sci fi, but it turns out it was genuine. It is a satire that is played straight, and it really seems like it overstays its welcome. The episodic plotting, the lack of interesting characters, just make this a film that I felt just detached from watching.

Escape from New York reminded me that we need more B-movies. I lament the fact that B-movies have been pushed out of the Hollywood formula. Great casting and cool scenes work together to make a really cool movie. The plot of the movie has Snake Plissken jumping into Manhattan, which has been turned into a huge prison island, to save the President of the US. I wanted to learn about some of the characters a bit more but it doesn't take away from the movie too much. Lots of fun, lots of act
