In the future, crime is out of control and New York City is a maximum security prison. Grabbing a bargaining chip right out of the air, convicts bring down the President's plane in bad old Gotham. Gruff Snake Plissken, a one-eyed lone warrior new to prison life, is coerced into bringing the President, and his cargo, out of this land of undesirables.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity For most of her substantial screentime, the lovely Adrienne Barbeau wears a shirt that reveals much of her abundant cleavage.
violence 5/10 Multiple explosions and a bombing. Three fights, one of which is to the death. One act of crossbow violence. Bloodless and non-graphic. A helicopter shoots a rocket to blow up an escaping raft of inmates. Bloodless and non-graphic. A cut off finger is shown to another person, mildly bloody but hokey-looking. A large street gang violently attacks a vehicle. Nothing worse than violence from The Warriors. Most of the violence in this film is not graphic. A hand is shot and it explodes (accompanied with a slightly comedic yelp)- the one act of significant graphic violence in the entire film.
profanity 3 F-words, and milder profanity.
alcohol Multiple instances of cigarette smoking.
frightening Some scenes that might make you jump, but nothing too disturbing. 13+ Rated R for some violence, and for language.
