Escape from New York

Escape from New York ★★★

He knows how to direct, but does he know how to direct within a which I’m guessing set time frame? No...Yeah. I mean he did this fantastically in The Thing, but the premise was just way to lacklustre which somehow made the runtime of the film impact its score for me; which is weird as usually a lacklustre scripts content would benefit from a shorter runtime, but yet, a longer runtime feels as if it could suffice the script, adding more detail into the world and especially characters. The film was not bad by any means, it was enjoyable for the most part, with cool music, action, set pieces, cinematography and editing choices, but at the end of the day, it just fell too short to its ultimately compact runtime.
