Escape From New York (1981)

  • escapefromnewyork

USA | 99 minutes | R | DCP | Dir. John Carpenter

In 1997, when the US President crashes into Manhattan, now a giant maximum security prison, a convicted bank robber is sent to rescue him.

"It's a toughly told, very tall tale, one of the best escape (and escapist) movies of the season," - Vincent Canby, New York Times

"The movie proudly wears its affection for crusty Sergio Leone archetypes and countdown-clock suspense sequences; Carpenter was Tarantino long before Tarantino was," - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
