In the terrifying future of 1997, a hijacked Air Force One crashes on the island prison of Manhattan, stranding President Donald Pleasance among murderers, terrorists, thieves and a drug-dealing Isaac Hayes. Eye-patched mercenary Snake Plissken (Carpenter regular Kurt Russell) gets tapped for the rescue mission, with a 24-hour deadline before the government sets off the explosives implanted in his neck. Carpenter's visionary dystopian nightmare finally returns to the big screen, sharper than ever. With Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine and Harry Dean Stanton.
"By far Mr. Carpenter's most ambitious, most riveting film to date. Hallucinatory a toughly told, very tall tale." Vincent Canby, New York Times
