Caught this one on a cable movie channel this afternoon. What a great flick!!! Snake Plissken kicks much ass, Kurt Russel is perfect in the role. One drawback was the tres cheesy 80’s synthesizer soundtrack. And the president played by…Donald Pleasance!!! Yeah…it could happen.
The Harry Dean Stanton rule is in effect, and we even get treated to Ernest Borgnine!!
I never saw Escape from L.A.; something tells me it would pale in comparison with this one. I think along with John Carpenter’s The Thing EFNY rates as an underrated sci fi classic.
