As a huge John Carpenter fan, I have seen all of his work, but for some reason, never seen the movies in the subject line (yes, I've even seen "Escape from LA..."). They just never interested me in terms of plot compared to his more horror/cosmic outings. Last night, I decided to rectify that.

It was raining outside. I turned off all the lights. Then I double featured the both of them, starting with "Escape" and ending with "Assault."

外围体育投注The cool synth music, the cinematography, and most importantly, the pacing are amazing in both. While there is action in both, I wouldn't describe them as action movies. "Assault" looks like a typical siege film, but has many horror aspects (the ominous/non-speaking gang feels like a precursor to "Prince of Darkness'" baddies). "Escape" looks like a one-many army film, but has lots of sci-fi/post-apocalyptic undertones which get under the skin. Both of them succeed in establishing a mood and atmosphere that's both of this world and completely outside of it. They're hypnotic, dreamy, and the best word I could use to describe them, is "lean."

Finally, they have two awesome ending shots. "Assault" with our two heroes on opposites of the law walking out of the station together, and "Escape" with Snake destroying the tape, not giving a damn, and walking into the night.

Long story short, I don't know why I sat on these films for so long. They've become favorites overnight and wanted to share.
