But something has gone wrong in this new moral order, because the President’s daughter has absconded to L.A. with a detonation device, and Snake is commandeered to retrieve it. But just below the surface there is a coiled Snake ready to strike.
Plot: This time, a cataclysmic temblor hits Los Angeles, turning it into an island. The president views the quake as a sign from above, expels Los Angeles from the country and makes it a penal colony for those found guilty of moral crimes. When his daughter, part of a resistance movement, steals the control unit for a doomsday weapon, Snake again gets tapped to save the day.

Another Entertaining Adventure of Snake Plissken
In 2000, when a powerful earthquake hits Los Angeles, the decadent city turns into an island. Then the criminals and outcast of the moralist laws created by the American president (Cliff Robertson) are deported permanently to the island.
In 2013, the daughter of the president, Utopia (A.J. Langer), is seduced by the terrorist Cuervo Jones (George Corraface) and flees to Los Angeles to meet him with a remote control capable to use satellites to destroy all electronic devices in any country that opposes to USA and allows the president to dominate the world. Now Cuervo is threatening to attack USA with Third World forces using the satellite control.
Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) is ready to be deported to Los Angeles and the president offers him full pardon if the recovers the remote control. Further, he infects Plissken with a virus to force him to accept the mission.
“Escape from L.A.” is another entertaining adventure of the anti-hero Snake Plissken by John Carpenter. The storyline is very similar to “Escape from New York” but with different and funny situations and dialogs. The action scenes are excellent, and this sequel is worthwhile watching. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): “Fuga de Los Angeles” (“Escape from Los Angeles”)
Can’t touch the original…
“Escape from New York” is by no means a classic film, but it’s memorably dark, seedy, suspenseful and even funny. You might call it a worthy cult favorite. Alas, “Escape from L.A.” is not nearly as memorable – in fact, it plays out like a tired remake of its far more amusing predecessor.
Both films have essentially the same premise; corrupt government officials send criminal tough guy “Snake” Plissken to infiltrate the ruins of a once-great city and retrieve some MacGuffin for them. In both films, Snake is reluctant to cooperate, but the government secures his compliance by threatening his life. So, Snake duly treks off to an urban wasteland, wasting thugs and meeting a variety of wacky characters on his way to completing his desperate mission.
Because the two films are so similar, I find “Escape from L.A.” tedious – it simply doesn’t break enough new ground. And, to make matters worse, this tepid sequel does everything worse than the original movie. The villain is inferior, the president is inferior, and even the special effects are inferior (note the positively laughable CGI when Snake pilots his submarine to L.A.; the approach to New York in the first film is infinitely classier.)
And, though both films are comedies (of a sort), I find that the jokes in the first are simply better. In “L.A.,” there are some attempts at social satire, but by and large they don’t work. For instance, the much-praised “plastic surgery” segment feels really isolated and pointless to me. It’s a one-joke sequence that goes nowhere and contributes nothing to the plot. Ultimately, I think the first film has the edge in the comedy department because it was co-written by Nick Castle, who reportedly lightened up the script and was quite a wit in general (though Castle is credited on this movie, I believe it’s only because he wrote the original film.)
Perhaps the crowning aggravation of “Escape from L.A.” is its exceedingly preachy social commentary. Now, I happen to be fairly liberal, so I agree with some of this film’s criticisms of the religious right – but I also find the presentation of these criticisms to be superficial, condescending, and obnoxious. To be perfectly blunt, this movie is not literate enough to have serious political aims. It’s just too silly and in-your-face; it doesn’t have the subtlety to work as a satire, and it certainly lacks balance. Suffice to say, if you’re conservative, this movie will annoy you, and even if you’re an open-minded liberal, it will probably still annoy you by representing your views so poorly.
Yeah, this is basically a dud, though I sort of enjoy the Luddite-like sentiments in the concluding scenes. It’s got some good cameos, a few decent scenes, but in the end…it just ain’t the original. What a waste of 50 million bucks!
