While having a great idea, and a phenomenal piece of source material to start

from (I mean the pure 80’s cheese that is Big Trouble in Little China is a Kurt Russell, rough and tumble, street fighting, spell slinging masterpiece!), Escape from New York does very little to encapsulate that sense of mayhem the film did so wonderfully.  Instead, we have a weird timeline with 2 Jack Burtons, one by the name of Snake Plissken, and an objective to save, a what must be at least 70 years old, country singer who happens to play their favourite music from a secret bunker dedicated to saving the best pieces of American culture. If that sounds like something you might be into I would give it a look but with caricature-esque artwork and not much to offer in the way of a compelling story, I don’t think this title has much room to grow.
