Escape from L.A. is a 1996 post-apocalyptic action film starring Kurt Russell, Stacy Keach, Steve Buscemi (whom we saw earlier tonight in Armageddon), Peter Fonda, Cliff Robertson, Michelle Forbes (who has a Star Trek connection), Pam Grier and Bruce Campbell. It's directed by John Carpenter. We have a bare-bones DVD of this one.
The NYTimes has a review here. Roger Ebert likes it. Moria says, "Kurt Russell gives an enjoyable return performance as Snake."
