Escape from New York (1981)

Action, Adventure, Science Fiction 1h 39m

AroView: An oddball sci-fi thriller from John Carpenter set in a grimy futuristic metropolis, where crime is out of control and New York City’s Manhattan is a maximum security prison.

When a plane carrying the U.S. President crashes into the city it is up to a convicted bank robber and lone warrior (Kurt Russell) to save him. A classic notable for it’s sardonic humour and enjoyable B-movie sensibilities.
