ESCAPE FROM L.A.
1996, Paramount, 101 min, USA, Dir: John Carpenter

Kurt Russell returns as Snake Plissken, the U.S. government’s go-to guy for dangerous missions in the dystopian future – a time when Los Angeles has been turned into an island prison camp for people whom tyrannical Cliff Robertson has declared undesirable. Hiding among them is a revolutionary who’s stolen the president’s super weapon, and Plissken has 10 hours to retrieve the device before a virus claims his life. Carpenter’s sequel to cult favorite ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK is packed with wicked satire, lots of action and a colorful supporting cast including Steve Buscemi, Peter Fonda and Pam Grier.
