This is an awesome movie that was first made back in 1978. It's a classic today and people still love this classic movie of all times. I know I do. Everything from who made the film to all the actors in the movie did an awesome job.
2 kids with telekinetic powers! They need to survive this world in order to return to their own world.
Smart and clever.
Definitely worth it to own & share w/ others!
ADVICE: Own this one AND "Return From Witch Mountain".
PS: (Forget "Race to Witch Mountain" 200X film; there's NO relation to the first two because Ian and Kym have bit-parts playing other characters.)
Escape From New York is a sci-fi\/action film by director John Carpenter. It was the first film by Carpenter that starred Kurt Russell. Russell plays \u201CSnake\u201D Plissken, an ex-special forces operative turned renegade and criminal.\n\nReleased in 1981, the film is set in a bleak 1997. The US is in the middle of WWIII and crime is rampant throughout the country. With crime at epidemic levels the entire island of Manhattan is converted into a maximum-security prison in 1988. No guards patrol the city so the inmates are free to form their own society within the walls. It\u2019s simple \u2013 once you go in, you don\u2019t come out.\n\nIn route to a peace summit, Air Force One in hijacked by a revolutionary American group and crashed inside the prison city of Manhattan. The President (Donald Pleasence) survives the crash inside an escape pod and is taken prisoner by the Duke of New York (Isaac Hayes). The President has important information in a suitcase attached to his wrist that must make it to the summit within 24 hours before the Soviet Union and China walk away from the peace table.\n\nThe government turns to the recently apprehended Plissken for help. They offer him a full pardon for all crimes committed within the US if he can rescue the President and retrieve his suitcase with 24 hours. Plissken agrees to the deal and secretly flies a glider into the city and lands atop the World Trade Center. Once inside Manhattan, Plissken is completely on his own.\n\nThe film also stars Lee Van Cleef as Commissioner Hauk, Adrienne Barbeau as Maggie, Ernest Borgnine as Cabbie, and Harry Dean Stanton as Brain. If you ask me, any movie with Harry Dean Stanton in it gets cool points in my book.\n\nJohn Carpenter also scored the film so if you\u2019re familiar with his films; you\u2019re probably familiar with his sound. The music fits the film perfectly!\n\nIn the years since the release of the film Snake Plissken has become a fan favorite and the film has cultivated a huge cult following. Plissken is vintage movie tough guy in the vein of Clint Eastwood\u2019s \u201Cthe man with no name\u201D, Mad Max, and Conan. Not much for talking, but when they do speak, you\u2019d better listen.\n\nEscape From New York has always been one of my personal favorites and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.\n\nI highly recommend this film!
In the 1960's the first ever interdimensional travel into the human body. The color and special effects were state of the art for its time, but today can be seen in the Hi Def Tvs. For its price still makes a good movie for everyone.
The empty space surrounding the vulnerable man emphasizes the exertion involved rather than the goal of escape: like the hologram who came to life because he wanted to, THX finally achieves his humanity by an assertion of will.
This film marks Lucas's directorial debut. It is a future story wherein the populace is controlled by mind-altering drugs and given designations (THX1138) rather than names. THX1138 decides to forego the drugs and struggles through withdrawal to find freedom and love. It is visually stunning and its sound track is marvelous. This film definitely deserves its R rating and I would not recommend it for less than mature viewers.
