The main thing I don't understand about this film(other than why Toblerone isn't the main character) is why people want to stay in the Bronx. I mean that company will pay you, and even if that isn't true you've got people trying to rob you constantly, not to mention the company killing anyone who doesn't leave.

Toblerone was giving me some serious Hippy Hitler (Lorenzo St. DuBois) vibes.

Ha ha! At the end of the movie, right after the door sequence, Crow is singing Frank Zappa's "Let's Make the Water Turn Black."

I knew I recognized the actor playing the vice president, and by the end of the episode I figured it out. He was the lead in Lucio Fulci's stylistic but still terrible "The House by the Cemetery." Was this actor allergic to coherent plots, or was it some kind of a badge of honor in the 80s to be a part of awful, Italian-made movies set in America?

Not sure which is my favorite episode, but this is definitely in the top five, esp. when they break out in song at the end credits!

I didn't catch what was funny about how the reporter said hospital at 57:07. It sounded pretty normal to me.

I'm actually a fan of this film and 1990: The Bronx Warriors, the film that came before this (though 1990 is MUCH better).

Hate to destroy the hopes and dreams of those still waiting to meet Toblerone someday ... but he dies in the full cut of the movie.

The only thing realistic about this depiction of the Bronx is all the Italians.

Hmm…ok I think I understand. There was no actual plot just a little plot-lette for us to fill out. Got it.

So the hero was the Valerie Bertinelli dude…I mean the crusading vampiress reporter…or um the mercenary guy with the pyromaniac “son” who looks nothing like him…

Our villain was the president of the…no it was fallen on hard times actor Henry Silva…actually the backstabbing assistant who wanted…

The laughing Italian guy in the sewer served our story to…um…yeah…

And the main theme was staying in the Bronx…rather…leaving the Bronx…rebuilding the Bronx as a futuristic…uh…for um the purpose of…

I have to go lie down.

What was is about these movies in the 80's that had New York gangs if the future looking like they just stepped out of an off broadway play? Hell I see too people that could fit into chorus line!


3 laughs

What's the deal with those damn' police uniforms? I've been to NYC numerous times, and the standard-issue street cop uniforms look nothing like what these clowns are wearing. They look like cop uniforms from the 1920s or something. Servo's right on about the crewmen of the Potemkin.

Love the whole "men's night" sketch! Ah Crow, how I love thee!

I'm totally digging their riffing over the closing credits right now -- Crow wailing on electric guitar, Servo doing his very best '80s power-balled belter, the take-off on that old Journey song -- one of their best closing-credits going-out bits ever. They're really good at those, riffing over the closing credits of movies made in the '70s and '80s, the dawn of the era of closing credits that go on forever.

Y'know, there's one major disappointment with this movie. Despite the endless abundance of easily-killable silver-suited bad-guy thugs, and the amount of railings in the underground scenes, there isn't so much as one single railing kill in the whole damn' movie. I thought I might have seen one or two in a scene towards the end, but I can't really be sure as they happened really quickly and there was lots of smoke in the scene. The fight choreographer for this stinkburger could've learned a thing or two from Space Mutiny, if you ask me.

God, I can't believe I watched it all. Not an instant favorite, but I suspect it'll grow on me once I watch it again once or twice. Hopefully, it'll go just great in a post-apocalyptic triple feature with Robot Holocaust and Warrior Of The Lost World.

Oh, yeah, and did I neglect to mention that you should leave the Bronx?

So....where does the "2000" part of this mess fit in?
I'm more than halfway through this movie, and there's been NO reference whatsoever to the year 2000...matter of fact, nothing's been established regarding when this film takes place save for a vague sense that it's sometime after 1986 (the only year mentioned thus far)

Again, I'll answer my own question: The only reason they called this crap sandwich Escape 2000 is because Escape From New York was taken :P

Why waste so much time, money, and effort combing the ruins for people who refuse to leave the Bronx? Especially when all you're gonna do is immolate anyone you find? Just bulldoze it, and kill 2 birds with one stone!

Is a flame thrower really the most practical or efficient weapon to use against helpless civilians? I get that they're tearing down the Bronx, so collateral damage doesn't matter--but its a slow, messy, and needlessly cruel death...They HAVE guns! A bullet to the head would be quick, clean, and merciful by comparison.

In the end, I think the only reason they use them is because burning people to death helps pad the film :P

You've got to love how the bad guys in this movie are only bad because they're being draconian in executing a really good idea. This is the movie I think about whenever I hear a Tea Partier fret about the direction they fear the country is going.

This episode...oh man. One of the first ones the bf and I watched together. We discovered this one not long after I introduced him to "The Warriors" and he introduced me to "Escape from New York", which are really the best of the urban-post apocalyptic-gang rebellion flicks. And then there is "Escape 2000", which hardly meets that standard.
