Escape from New York

Rating: 7/10

Another gaping hole from my 80s cinema to-do list. The premise is extremely cheesy and the execution isn’t much better, but it manages to surprise and entertain just enough. For a movie that I have always thought was considered quintessential eighties action, there really is not much action in it. Just a bunch of running, a wrestling match, a tiny bit of gun play, and several dated looking SFX sequences.
