Escape From L.A. (1996)

EFLAposterBy Scott Goldfine

Director John Carpenter and Kurt Russell (as Snake Plissken) reteam for this sequel to their early 1980s film “Escape From New York.” Set in 2013, Snake is sent to L.A. — now an earthquake-created island and destination for exiled undesirables ― to thwart a revolutionary leader.

The campy proceedings, which feature this year’s cheesiest visuals and a retro cast that includes Steve BuscemiPeter FondaCliff RobertsonValeria GolinoStacy Keach, Pam Grier and Bruce Campbell, offer modest entertainment. Rated R.
