Flucht aus L.A.

  • Deutschland Die Klapperschlange 2 - Flucht aus L.A. (mehr)


Ein Erdbeben hat Los Angeles verwüstet. Die Stadt ist vollkommen zerstört und von Wasser umschlossen. Es herrscht ein diktatorischer Präsident, dem ganz L.A. als Gefängnis dient. Dorthin wird jeder verbannt, der gegen die staatliche Ordnung verstößt. Dass sich seine Tochter Utopia nach L.A. absetzt, um sich mit dem Chef-Guerillero Cuervo Jones zu verbünden, stört den Diktator empfindlich. Er beauftragt den Ex-Elitekämpfer Snake Plissken, die beiden zu töten. (kabel eins)

Deutsch Billig, doof, zweitklassig und verwirrt – die Regie hat hier völlig versagt. So wie der Großteil der letzten Produktion von John Carpenter. ()

Englisch I have to say, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film, at least considering its general reception. This is something that just clicked for me. It's a B-movie, it's cheap, but it's well done. There are some scenes that are absolutely awesome to the point of being unreal. The surfing scene is just divine. The film also makes great use of my favorite actors in smaller roles, so I'm satisfied. ()

Englisch Up until now, you could detect virtually no nineties influence in Carpenter's nineties flicks. In Escape from L.A., however, they finally landed with a giant blowjob. It's not just the obscene digital special effects that will surely make some scenes, in my opinion, the cornerstone of a future as-yet non-existent field of artistic study, but also the grey empty corridors of the military complexes, the baggy jumpsuits, the exploitation of urban subcultures, and the hedonistic genre self-consciousness. It's exactly like buying a kid a bunch of Legos from different sets and letting him assemble them as he sees fit, without any limits of reality. Stupid? Yep. Ugly-looking? Sure. Fun? Yeah, but honestly, it must have looked better on paper. Carpenter can't do big budget. ()

Englisch Released three years after Jurassic Park, this film was almost offending me technically, but the surfing scene made me understand that Carpenter doesn't take it seriously and is playing a bit of a joke on us. He’s the poet of B-movies, who, with the exception of The Thing , never knew how to do special effects and his fans never minded. The script is of course bollocks, but that's not the point, especially with Kurt being rough like sandpaper, and the ending is so absurdly anarchic that even Tyler Durden would blush with shame. ()

Englisch A unique filmmaking phenomenon, the structure of which is interesting and entertaining, mainly with regards to its predecessor – on the one hand, it’s a typical sequel that expands the fictional world and makes several references about previous events, on the other, it looks like a remake that took the storyline of the first and added the genre needs of the period to it. Whereas Escape from New York is a thoroughbred representative of the 1980s B-movies that pays serious homage to several genre tropes, Escape from L.A. is eclectic, self-aware, over-the-top and surprisingly anarchist in a purely 1990s way. It’s packed with awful special effects and nonsense, but Carpenter kind of manages it, of course, and most of it is either great fun or very subversive twisted bollocks (the ending is great and convinced me to give it the fourth star). And Kurt Russell also delivers like never before. 70% ()
