1997: Manhattan has become an immense island-prison where 3 million prisoners live in organised rival gangs. A hard-core criminal is in charge of saving the President of the United States, stuck in the middle of it. There are only a few hours left to defuse the mini-bombs that have been inserted into his body, unbeknown to him. A genre masterpiece by one the most influential filmmakers of all time and a Kurt Russell as charis- matic as ever. To (re)discover without fail.
