In John Carpenter’s dystopian conjuring of the near-future, Manhattan has become a high security prison: anarchy reigns and there’s no way out. But when Air Force One crashes in the Big Apple, an eye-patch clad Kurt Russell must lead the President to safety. A twitchy Stanton plays “Brain,” a cunning former criminal associate of Russell’s who helps facilitate the escape.
