Michael Sumpter’s review published on Letterboxd:
Been a long time since my last viewing if this film, I love it just as much now as I did then. The score, the setting, the mood, and the characters are all great. Snake Plissken is our main character and he must infiltrate the island of Manhattan to save the president. Did I mention the island is a fortified prison?? The setup of this movie is outrageous but it works very well. The island is controlled by different gangs and Snake meets a lot of interesting characters along his journey. This is worth a watch eapecially for action movie and Carpenter fans.
