Absolute classic action adventure, one of the best of the 80's, cheapest ever price

In the future, crime is out of control and New York City's Manhattan is a maximum security prison. Grabbing a bargaining chip right out of the air, convicts bring down the President's plane in bad old Gotham. Gruff Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), a one-eyed lone warrior new to prison life, is coerced into bringing the President (Donald Pleasance), and his cargo, out of this land of undesirables.
Info added by Rmcstar

In 1997, a major war between the United States and the Soviet Union is concluding, and the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a giant maximum security prison. When Air Force One is hijacked and crashes into the island, the president (Donald Pleasence) is taken hostage by a group of inmates. Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), a former Special Forces soldier turned criminal, is recruited to retrieve the president in exchange for his own freedom.
