An earthquake has turned L.A. into an island, and the conservative, moralistic, totalitarian president has turned it into a prison for dissidents - from which no one returns! Now, the president's daughter has hijacked a dangerous MacGuffin and run off to this hellhole to be with her Che-like South American revolutionary lover, Cuervo Jones. Who you gonna call? Snake Plissken.
So we get Kurt Russell's iconic Snake vs. assorted post-apocalyptic punk rockers and revolutionaries, plus a few friends. - SPOILER - kind of:
- Peter Fonda as an aging surfer dude
- Steve Buscemi as the slimeball Map to the Stars Eddie
- Pam Grier as Hershe - I won't spoil that one
I just thought he was ... taller.
