Another John Carpenter cult classic, 'Escape From New York' was one of the best entries in the once popular post-apocalyptic genre which included 'Road Warrior' and 'The Terminator'. In 1997, the island of Manhattan has been turned into the world's largest maximum-security prison, a place where the worst of humanity is sent to rot. The U.S. Government finds itself in a major crisis when the president's plane crash-lands in New York only days before a vital peace summit between major warring nations is to take place. The president survives the crash, but is taken hostage by the denizens of Manhattan and held for ransom. Only war hero turned felon Snake Plissken can save the day, and he is offered a simple deal for his work: save the president and live, fail to save him and die. The one-eyed bandit sets to work, cutting a path of destruction to the president that has to be seen to be believed. Kurt Russell creates the indelible character of Snake Plissken as no other actor could have. Wisecracking and cool under the very worst of pressures, Snake is the ultimate bad good guy. Often copied, but never duplicated, 'Escape From New York' is full of the wit, energy and action that mark a John Carpenter picture.

"The name's Snake"

"I thought you were dead."

Brill'!

Really poor transfer on the UK version, example.

ouch that is one sloppy transfer

shame, because this is a cracking film.

looks like the UK got a poor source transfer. Shame the US version is region locked.

Why release it on blu ray if the quality is not there? I am fed up with buying blu rays that are sub standard. Next time I get a poor transfer I am going to take it back to the shop for a refund. If you bought a new car and it arrived all scratched you wouldn't accept it.

Has this movie held up? Haven't seen the movie, but the story seems cool.

Fav film of all time

Before you buy a blu-ray check the reviews, it's not hard.
