Escape from L.A. | reviewed by: Scott Crick | February 12, 2012
entertainment value
Another film in the category of sequels that shouldn't have been made. Fun and campy, but lacking the genuine thrills in Escape from NY
genre Action | Comedy
synopsis This time, a cataclysmic temblor hits Los Angeles, turning it into an island. The president views the quake as a sign from above, expels Los Angeles from the country and makes it a penal colony for those found guilty of moral crimes. When his daughter, part of a resistance movement, steals the control unit for a doomsday weapon, Snake again gets tapped to save the day.
