Escape from L.A. | 1996 | R | - 2.8.5

Kurt Russell is back as Snake Plissken and now he has to retrieve a top-secret device from criminal elements in future L.A.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Scantily clad women (one is seen with a thong and another has only pasties on her breasts).

VIOLENCE/GORE 8 - An earthquake leads to much property damage and aftershocks. We see a couple people electrocuted in the electric chair, lots of fighting and hitting with objects with some blood. A bloody corpse is used for target practice, lots of gunshots (sometimes machine gun fire) with some blood. Explosions, cutting and threatening with knives (some blood). Disfigured people and bloody body parts (eyes and head), a decapitation, gladiator-style entertainment with people fighting with and without weapons and being executed when they fail. Rioting, reckless driving, dangling on moving objects.

LANGUAGE 5 - About four F-words, many scatological references, a few mild obscenities and anatomical references.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
