Description: This film has looked in 1982, not without a certain irony after the onset predicts a gloomy 1990. On the streets of New York’s Bronx does not terrorize the population of runaway youth motorcycle gangs, the Bronx and he is still, fortunately, was not declared a high-risk, which is off limits to anyone, even the police. However, in the picture of a brave police Lt. Hammer still decided to fight with the scoundrel who call themselves the Warriors. This gang is headed bastard on the landmark nickname Garbage, which is exactly what has allowed American critics define their attitude to the Italian band, filmed in English, only one word: “Rubbish.”
But even funnier sounds term “spaghetti-thriller.” After all, the Italian director Enzo G. Castellari took a lot of “spaghetti westerns”, and at the turn of the 80s smelled a chance situation, blindly imitating the American sci-fi thriller. He did not try to hide the fact that a lot of bands borrowed “Warriors” by Walter Hill and “Escape from New York” by John Carpenter. And in Italy suddenly found a new legislator of fashion: then there were other “Spaghetti Westerns» – “Texas 2000”, “2019: After the fall of New York”, “Warriors of 2072,” etc. In 1984, Castellari shot sequel, called “Escape from the Bronx” – as if specially for those who had not thought about plagiarism with respect to said Carpenter’s film.
Review: Italian version of «Escape from new York». The film can enjoy only those who are nostalgic for post-apocalyptic fiction 80’s, so much so that not looking at the actors ‘ performance, setting the action scenes and the script. The rest can be satisfied with «Escape from new York» is much better.
