anyone else seen this movie?

we just watched it and found it fairly interesting... Nice mix of present and future science fiction...

I saw it.

It was like a space version of the Snake Plissken films...only not up to their standard. Mediocre at best.

Sadly, many films these days are visually appealing, particularly the sci-fi genre; the sad part being all the credit for that should go to modern technology and not the film makers/crew members who put it all together.

True. It was not a perfect movie... We've not seen the snake Plissken films, so we can't comment on that comparison.

A lot of the concept was good, but some parts could have been better...

"Escape from New York"

A classic for me :)

Definitely the better of the two films. It's a shame they never made the third one.
