William_Myers’s review published on Letterboxd:
Man, you know?! With all of this crap that is going on in my home city such as rioting and violence right now, I got a new nickname for this Great John Carpenter flick: Escape from the Big Trouble in Little New York
But as a person who is optimistic about the future of this whole situation, I still have some hope left within me that the Road to Recovery for NY will reach its end and everything will come back to its normal state. But unfortunately, I cannot do this alone. I need someone super bad-ass with the iconic eye-patch, weapon and such attitude to restore New York and rid of this horrible cause that brings the city down to its lowest of the low. Who am I gonna call you ask? Mr. Kurt Russell aka "The name's Snake!"
I have been waiting to say this for a long time ever since I saw it back in 2015 (prior review right here). Is it me or didn't Solid Snake who made his metal gear solid took inspiration from American Snake in Escape from New York?
