A thrilling landmark film that jolts along at a breakneck pace, Escape From New York leapt to cult status with high-octane action, edge-of-your-seat suspense and a mind-blowing vision of a lone warrior (Kurt Russell) battling his way out of a post-apocalyptic Manhattan! Hailed as "stylish and scary" (Los Angeles Times), "dark and dangerous" (Newsweek) and "gloriously...fun" (Tyler Morning Telegraph), this fast-paced and furiously entertaining thriller grabs you by the throat and won't let go! In a world ravaged by crime, the entire island of Manhattan has been converted to a walled prison where brutal prisoners roam. But when the U.S. President (Donald Pleasence) crash-lands inside, only one man can bring him back: notorious outlaw and former Special Forces war hero Snake Plissken (Russell). But time is short: in 24 hours, an explosive device implanted in his neck will end Snake's missionand his lifeunless he succeeds!

|Closed Captions or Subtitles?||
You are in luck! Not only does the Blu-ray feature an English subtitle track, but the subtitle track is marked "For the deaf and hard of hearing" - it's a really great subtitle track. The subtitles are large and they appear in front of the character who speaks the words. If there are... Read More

|Escape From New York on BluRay...?||
The movie will play, but the special features won't. So it's a toss up. Personally, I just wanted to watch the movie (I don't care that much for special features anyway), so I'm happy with it.
