Escape from New York 
60%
2/4 stars

Action: 2/3 + Comedy: 0.5/2 + Good vs Evil: 1/1 + Love/Sex: 0/1 + Special Effects: 0.5/1 + Plot: 1/1 + Music: 1/1 = 6/10 or 60%.

Escape from New York is escapist action at a fun level. The future prediction of what the U.S. and New York will be like in 1998 automatically dates it, but when Isaac Hayes rolls up in a car ordained with chandleliers for headlights as the proclaimed President of the prisoner population one must appreciate the joys of alternate realities, which obviously can't be taken in too serious a manner.

Other joys include Russel in the lead as an uzi yielding, eye-patch adorned, the-government-and-everybody-has-wronged-me type prisoner- who not only gets to wrestle for the prisoners amusement, but must rescue the President of the U.S. and return him safely before bombs are detonated in his neck. Over the top completely!
