Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★½

"The name's Plissken."

This featured such an intriguing premise, but I ultimately wasn't a fan of the execution. For a setting that features the worst of the worst all on Manhattan Island, I found it all to be rather tame. Performances weren't very memorable and they really milked the fact that Kurt Russell plays a character named Snake Plissken. As well, the movie visually made it a bit of a borefest.

My favourite part was the music, so good!
