Excerpt: "Ow! (INJECTS) That'll freeze the nerves in this spot for 24 hours. You want some on your mouth? " Don't expect a cinematic masterpiece when watching this movie, but expect it to be an entertaining empty-headed action sci-fi with Guy Pearce as a purebred John McClane, in an ultra-modern...

This is a rather sacrastic and childish Snake Plissken from Escape from New York, with the same plot (almost) as Escape from New York.
