September 11, 2006
Com exceção de seu interessante anti-herói, é um filme medíocre: pouco imaginativo, com cenas de ação frouxas e uma trilha amadora (marca registrada de Carpenter), é um daqueles exemplos de longas que se tornam cult sabe-se lá por quê.
| Original Score: 2/5

The plot gradually winds down into predictable though highly enoyable histrionics.
November 3, 2005
Boasting one of the most iconic characters ever in Plissken, and an effective sci-fi set-up, this is entertainment of the highest order.

Reagen-era horseshit.

It's a toughly told, very tall tale, one of the best escape (and escapist) movies of the season.

Vicious scenes are often juxtaposed with comic sequences in a tap dance of contrasting tones that is both bizarre and grandly entertaining.

You can't think too much about any of the details of the story because it is, after all, a comic-book adventure.

Escape from New York moves swiftly and succeeds as taut drama.
December 23, 2003
Russell's iconic character is so enjoyable to watch that it's a shame his only other screen appearance was in the dim-witted sequel Escape from L.A.
| Original Score: 3/4

The oppressive power of Carpenter's Scope framing is matched only by his ability to speak to contemporary affairs.

Though it's not the best movie to emerge from the Carpenter/Russell partnership (that remains The Thing), it's an awfully close second.

I love this movie, yet I'm not sure if I respect it.

John Carpenter imaginatively [sketches his] high concept premise in this cult classic.
| Original Score: 4/5

Great B-movie fun.

[Russell] channels Eastwood with a low, gruff voice and snide offhand remarks ... Snake Plissken is the kind of hero you can get behind

March 10, 2003
Kurt Russell creates the most unforgettable role of his career: the criminal/hero Snake Plissken.
December 30, 2002
John Carpenter's apocalyptic thriller has aged remarkably well; its vision of Manhattan as a giant maximum security prison anticipates better-known dystopias like Blade Runner and Brazil.
| Original Score: 4/5
October 18, 2002
This isn't a brazenly colourful futuristic landscape but a grimy portrait of a city not far from the down-and-dirty real New York of the late '70s and early '80s.

Gloriously cheesy post-apocalyptic fun with Kurt Russell at his grizzled best.
| Original Score: 3/5

I remember it being a lot better than it actually is. So if you have fond memories of a long-ago viewing of EFNY, I'd suggest not ruining them by revisiting the film again.
