Call him “Snake.” The future is 1997 and the island of Manhattan is now a maximum security prison. Unfortunately it’s also the location where convicts took down the President of the United States’ plane. So the government sends in the “not dead” eye-patch wearing bank-robbing Snake Plissken to go in to retrieve the president and his cargo. But this mission isn’t exactly on Snake’s terms and, given the violent nature of how things run now in New York, it certainly isn’t going to be easy. Escape from New York is the quintessential dystopic view of American society’s future mixed in with that Kurt Russell charm and John Carpenter score.
