    This should come with a 18” x 24” rolled apology letter from Carpenter. I would love to hear him do an honest commentary though.

    Agreed. I don't think I've ever been as dissapointed in a film as I was by this, and I had kind of low expectations from the cheesyness of its trailer!

    I think this is better than the original.

    This will always have a special place in my heart, since it was the last movie that Nier brother and I went to with our dad before he passed away. Dad loved the ending.

    I think it's better than the original as well. Drags a bit heading into the climax but has an awesome nihilist finish to wrap things up.

    That is so true. If I remember correctly the original was made for $10 million and the sequel for $50 million and to these eyes the original looks so much better.

Escape from L.A. is a "go-for-broke action extravaganza" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times)!
