"Stunning In 4K A Must Have"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

To Have so many John Carpenter films remastered in 4K is indeed a treat,Hallowe­en,They Live,Prince Of Darkness and Escape From New York have all been given the treatment. Escape looks incredible,the best it has ever looked,Dolby Vision and HDR 10 give the picture incredible look,there is a certain amount of grain is present but thus you will always have for older made films,the 4K edition comes with a remastered Bluray and Bonus extras disc with plenty of added features,the 4K disc seems to have a much more bolstered 5.1 DTS Master Soundtrack than the Remastered Bluray however the films soundtrack has never sounded better. If youre a John Carpenter fan this is must have to your collection as are all the Carpenter 4K remasters.


Escape From New York (1981)

Kurt Russell (Stargate) stars in a high-velocity sci-fi action-thriller from director John Carpenter (co-written by Nick Castle) that sets the screen ablaze with heart-stopping suspense, outrageous stunts and imaginative special effects.

Critic Reviews:

  • " The film plays its social satire broad but strings it along a rail of self-awareness. " – Phil Hoad
  • " It has got an intriguing premise, an effective cast, and it has been expertly mounted. " – Arthur Knight
  • " If you don't like Escape From New York, then you and I will have some trouble seeing eye to eye-patch in our taste in movies. " – Ed Travis
