The year is 1997. In a police state future the island of Manhattan has been turned into a maximum security prison. The rules are simple: once you’re in, you don’t come out. But when the United States president (Donald Pleasence) crash lands an escape pod into the centre of the city after fleeing a hijacked plane, a ruthless prison warden (Lee Van Cleef) bribes ex-soldier and criminal Snake Plissken into entering the hazardous Manhattan in order to rescue the distraught president from the twisted world of New York and the demented clutches of its new ruler The Duke (Isaac Hayes). John Carpenters cyber-punk, action, suspense spectacular.
