Screw Hideo Kojima, was Bin Laden inspired by this fucking thing? I was waiting for Van Cleef to bust out a game of Double Jenga and start ranting about Halliburton with the way that opening sequence was going. Anyway, cool concept but the story rapidly runs out steam as it fails to develop any meaningful conflict or characters. It asks only question we all know the answer to - is Kurt Russel a bad enough dude to save the president?

(Viewed on 18/01/14): Why don't purveyors of dystopic visions set their bleak predictions well ahead of their potential life cycles? 97 wasn't _that_ far away enough from 81. Nonetheless, Carpenter's stark, minimalist action thriller demonstrates his superb command of form, and together with Cundey he creates an atmospheric twilight world that's grimy and desolate. Russell is great in a career defining role as Plissken, a moody misanthrope, and Carpenter's score sets an ominous tone.

The sets, lighting, and photography have an awesome Carpenter aesthetic, for sure. While politically the brazen nihilism is somewhat interesting and bold, I don't think it's exactly admirable.

"Escape From New York" has a very interesting premise and, despite the predictably outdated 'futurism', the intentions are appreciated.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.
