SilentDawn’s review published on Letterboxd:
Escape from New York is one of the few films that feels like it was written by a group of imaginative 8-year-olds:
Iconic city turned into a high-security prison?
The president of the US is kidnapped after crashing into the city?
Nuclear warfare imminent?
A stoic badass is the only one to save the day?
And his name?
Check, check, and check.
Moody and pulse-quickening 80s synth score?
Main antihero injected with deadly poison capsules that are timed?
A car with chandeliers on the sides?
