In the remote future of 1997 (hee-hee), the world has deliquesced into a dystopian nightmare. Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) – an ex-special forces war hero/burglar/badass with a costume that looks like a lazy choice for an impromptu Halloween party – is promised freedom if he can rescue the president and find a cassette tape containing information regarding nuclear fission within 24 hours. Simple.
