Critic Reviews of "Escape from L.A."Washington PostOctober 24, 2002
Enjoyable in a playful wayHouston ChronicleJuly 05, 2002
The special effects vary from OK to lame to very lame.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
Dark, percussive and perversely fun.Globe and MailApril 12, 2002
Escape from L.A. is too preposterous to be a good film. But in keeping with its title, it does provide a couple of hours of entertaining escapism.Los Angeles TimesFebruary 14, 2001
Buscemi, Fonda, Robertson, Grier and many others get to make vivid impressions, but of course it's Russell who must carry this swiftly paced picture. As rugged as ever and attractively weathered, he does so with ease.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
This is the kind of movie Independence Day could have been if it hadn't played it safe.Common Sense MediaDecember 14, 2010
Violent, semi-spoofy action sequel is too dark for kids.Movie MetropolisMay 03, 2010
...for all its commotion, the movie never catches fire.eFilmCritic.comJuly 30, 2007
Escape from L.A. finds Carpenter in a playful mood.Combustible CelluloidJune 23, 2007
In a summer filled with giant duds like Independence Day or The Rock or Chain Reaction, this is the best testosterone action flick of the season.Fantastica DailyJanuary 23, 2006
A dreadful belated sequel to the entertaining Escape From New York. Perfectly epitomizes how Carpenter's skills have eroded since his late '70s, early '80s heyday.TheMovieReport.comDecember 11, 2004
Diverting for the 100 minutes it runs, but once they're up, it is instantly forgettable.
