Escape from L.A. 4K 1996 Ultra HD 2160p
The United States of 2013, a brutal totalitarian dictatorship. As a result of natural disasters, Los Angeles has become an island where all elements undesirable to the government are exiled. Serpent Plissken, who once performed the impossible "Escape from New York" is again needed by the authorities to perform the task, which no one but him can cope - you must return the president's daughter, who stole a sample of a secret weapon of mass destruction. Complete the mission Snake must for 10 hours, otherwise a deadly virus injected into his blood, will begin to operate. Armed to the teeth and ready for anything, Plissken goes to Los Angeles.

Review 4K Movie

The events of "Escape from New York" took place in 1997. As that date approached, it became increasingly obvious that the negative predictions would not come true, so the sequel, released in 1996, moved the action to 2013. Now that it's behind us, too, the alternate future can only be viewed with a smile. But it is all the more interesting to know what John Carpenter's predictions for it were.

Snake Plissken once again becomes the protagonist, and this is most likely the case where the actor partly has to play himself. Kurt Russell is known for the fact that many iconic films with his participation in their time deafeningly failed at the box office. "Escape from Los Angeles," by the way, also failed, although it is not considered a cult. That is, both on screen and in reality the actor was exhausted, and therefore portrayed a hardened criminal very reliably. Well, but Russell's fee was as much as ten million bucks, which is a lot by today's standards. It is the Snake, who, this time, roams around Los Angeles, that saves this movie from quite a bad aftertaste, for without him the movie would not stand a chance.

It's not just that the future shown is too unreliable (no one in the United States would ever allow such a president to come to power). It's the script itself, which is torn apart by numerous contradictions, that's unreliable. Plissken goes on the radio, even though there was a hint of its absence at the beginning; first we are told that there are no ways out of Los Angeles, and then it turns out that it seems possible to go to another country from there; the inhabitants of the metropolis are shown alternately free and with a military dictatorship. And the main question that is haunting (especially in the finale) is where did the islanders get so many weapons if they have been cut off from the rest of the world for more than a day? In addition, the world, which is no longer shown as criminal, but as post-apocalyptic, is terribly unreliable because of the very cheap special effects. A budget of fifty million, you say? A year earlier, "Gamera: Defender of the Universe" was released in Japan, and even there, despite the very low budget, everything looked three times more believable.

The post-apocalyptic itself seems completely out of place here. I can't believe that's what's happening in the sequel to Escape from New York. Against the backdrop of action movies that soared to peak popularity in the 1990s, "Escape from L.A." looks like an expensive but weak understatement.
