Christmas Di Leo 🎄’s review published on Letterboxd:
A completely bonkers mad libs version of it's original predecessor. The barebones story template is the exact same but Carpenter, Hill and Russell pack a lot more wacky ideas into this one. Is it bad? Is it self-parody? Does it really matter? Nah, it really doesn't, because Escape From L.A. is big-budgeted, endlessly entertaining and just straight-up silly. Sure, it's a familiar trip but it's a gnarly one too. PLISSKEN, HE'S ON FIRE!!! FROM DOWNTOWN!!! BOOMSHAKALAKA!!!
