Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★★

SCIENCE FICTION MONTH - FILM #6

Escape From New York is an extremely eighties, absurd, over the top, testosterone-fueled, science fiction, action adventure movie, but despite all of the really dumb stuff here, to this day, it's still so cool.

Kurt Russell's Snake Plissken, SNAKE PLISSKEN, oozes swagger throughout this film, and the supporting cast, particularly Harry Dean Stanton, are all competent enough to hold their own.

It's just so cool and dumb and fun, and that's how films should be.
