Escape from New York (Classics Remastered) Blu-Ray
It is 1997 and Manhattan Island has been turned into a maximum security prison, due to the enormous rise in the crime rate. Drug-dealer Prospero (Isaac Hayes) and his cronies hold control of the entire area, making it the most inopportune spot for a plane carrying the US president to crash-land. Eye-patched anti-hero Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) is entrusted with the task of rescuing his country's leader. Followed by a belated sequel, 'Escape from LA', in 1996.
