Synopsis >

Kurt Russell stars in this high-velocity sci-fi action-thriller from director John Carpenter. In a world ravaged by crime, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted into a prison which houses the world's most brutal inmates, and when the President of the United States crash lands inside, only one man can bring him back: notorious outlaw Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell). But time is short: in 24 hours, an explosive charge planted inside Snake's body will end the mission - and his life - unless he succeeds.
