Had this film come out 14 years ago, it would probably still be a late-night video treat, rather than looking a mite tired.

Violent, semi-spoofy action sequel is too dark for kids.

...for all its commotion, the movie never catches fire.

Escape from L.A. finds Carpenter in a playful mood.

In a summer filled with giant duds like Independence Day or The Rock or Chain Reaction, this is the best testosterone action flick of the season.

A dreadful belated sequel to the entertaining Escape From New York. Perfectly epitomizes how Carpenter's skills have eroded since his late '70s, early '80s heyday.

Diverting for the 100 minutes it runs, but once they're up, it is instantly forgettable.

A deliciously campy send-up of everything we love to hate about the Left Coast and the entertainment biz.

I don't think most people gave ESCAPE FROM L.A. enough credit when it first came out ... Every bit as cheesy as I remember - but also a lot more fun!

Less a sequel than a really crappy remake!
