I agree with most of the rest, but this must be good drugs.
I'd actually agree that Escape from LA is on par with the original. Both have their flaws, but I think the original really has some lulls during the middle that really could have used a tighten. LA has the terrible CGI going against it, but both have an equally diverse cast of interesting character actors, a wild dystopian vision, a great snarling performance from Russell and Carpenter's trademark nihilism. I'd give LA the nod for the better ending, too, one of my favorites from any genre. Welcome to the human race.
