A one of a kind apocalyptic epic that has yet to be rivaled in action and storytelling quality.

It's a rare film that has so many ideas and yet fails so consistently to make use of them.

Snake is Carpenter's fantasy alter ego, a man of uncompromised anti-authoritarianism. 'I don't give a f--- about your war, or your President,' Snake tells the police commissioner, voicing a sentiment that was hardly unusual during Carpenter's USC days.

When the final credits roll, you can be forgiven a vague sense of dissatisfaction, because the creativity that went into formulating the premise was never extended to the script writing stage.

The pic functions well as both a prison escape drama and as an escapist film. It's far from a great film, but is entertaining and pleasantly cynical despite being so bleak.

Maybe it's not John Carpenter's best film, but it's one of his most fun and the premise is irresistible: in the future, Manhattan has been turned into a high security island prison and Liberty Island is the guard station.

The movie proudly wears its affection for crusty Sergio Leone archetypes and countdown-clock suspense sequences; Carpenter was Tarantino long before Tarantino was.

Power corrupts. Truth is the antidote. And if the masters of the universe don't like that, it only takes one nasty bastard in the right place at the right time to correct them. The eyepatch is optional.

It's a toughly told, very tall tale, one of the best escape (and escapist) movies of the season.
