Escape from L.A. is a 1996 John Carpenter movie and the sequel to 1981's smash hit Escape from New York. Kurt Russell reprises his role as war hero Snake Plisskin, who winds up on another deadly mission where he'll have to fight for his life and his freedom. In the future, America has become a totalitarian dystopia under the rule of a new President who intends to hold the Presidency for the rest of his life. He's outlawed everything from alcohol to swearing that he deems immoral. The city of Los Angeles has been turned into an island off the coast of California, and anyone who breaks the new President's rules gets sent to the island in exile. When the leader of a terrorist organization steals the President's most powerful weapon and threatens to use it against America, the President recruits renegade Snake Plisskin to infiltrate Los Angeles and retrieve the weapon. Snake has ten hours to complete the mission, but the LA penal colony is overrun with criminals looking to stop him. Escape from L.A. is a heart-racing action film, co-starring Steve Buscemi as Map to the Stars Eddie.
