Synopsis

Set in the year 1997, the isle of Manhattan has been turned into a maximum-security prison, housing the worst of the worst. When the President's plane crashes inside, the First Person (Donald Pleasance) is held hostage by the unsavory tenants. Enter Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), an eye-patched mercenary coerced into saving the day. Recommended.
