It is 1997 and Manhattan Island has been turned into a maximum security prison, due to the enormous rise in the crime rate. Drug-dealer Prospero (Isaac Hayes) and his cronies hold control of the entire area, making it the most inopportune spot for a plane carrying the US president to crashland. Eye-patched anti-hero Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) is entrusted with the task of rescuing his country's leader. Followed by a belated sequel, 'Escape from LA', in 1996.

John Carpenter back at his best. Who knew at the time that Kurt Russel would become a huge action star - giving us one of the most iconic heroes in Cinema - the direct inspiration for Big Boss/Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid Fame. Though low budget, there is plenty of action and thrills. A Must for action junkies - showing modern day hollywood how its supposed to be done. There are good few extras on this disc.
