Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Escape from L.A. (1996)

Directed by John Carpenter

Starring Kurt Russell, Steve Buscemi, Stacy Keach, Peter Fonda


I’m still not convinced Carpenter knows how to make a movie. Up to this point, I think Starman is his best film.

Didn’t really have a story of its own. No climax. Many scenes were just copied from other films like Terminator 2: Judgment Day, True Lies (must be a Cameron fan), Earthquake, and any James Bond film. The effects weren’t that great, and they weren’t even motivated to begin with. Russell is decent, but nothing more.
