Overview

Escape from L.A. finds Kurt Russell once again in the role of Snake, which he played in the 1981 film, Escape from New York. Los Angeles has finally had the really big earthquake everyone was afraid of, and what remains is now an island. Because the country's ultra-righteous President-for-Life (Cliff Roberton) wants it that way, all the weirdos and freaks that previously inhabited New York in large numbers, and the rest of the U.S. in smaller concentrations, have been quarantined on the island of L.A. The president has Snake taken from the nice, decent prison he was living in for a special mission in L.A. The president's daughter has joined the resistance movement determined to overthrow his one-man rule, and has stolen his secret "black box" (a doomsday machine) to boot. Snake is given a poison which will kill him in a few hours unless he returns to the president for the antidote. His mission is to recover the black box and kill the president's daughter.

it could have used a little work in the plot of the story and a little more explanation of the "black box". But overall,its a good movie to watch and has one the best endings i've ever seen.

To me this was an awesome movie!! Especially the beginning when Kurt Russell is putting on his leathers. I melted right to my chair. I enjoyed the whole movie. The surf boarding part was a little cheesy but it was definitly a movie collection addition.

This may have some cringe worthy affects namely the submarine, under water bit but apart from that this is an enjoyable romp. there are some amusing lines in the film and a cool ending, what happens next escape from earth? 4 stars
