0705: Escape 2000

MST3k, Experiment #0705

The first to die were the lucky ones. Escape 2000.

A vicious corporation tries to kill and starve the last remaining habitants of the Bronx in order to build their own high-rise developments. A lone long-haired hot-tempered warrior, Trash, is the only obstacle well, him, a psychopathic bomb-maker and his equally psychopathic pre-school son, an annoying activist help him out, by kidnapping "the President" (of the corporation), a Richard Dreyfuss look-a-like.

Everyone has been ordered to leave the Bronx.

I really enjoy this episode!!! The movie is good fun in its "post-apocalyptic" sense... It's actually quite stupid, but the Toblerone character definitely stood out well enough for them to keep bringing him up, even having him show up in Deep 13. Honestly, he reminds me of a vaguely Italian version of Rommel from Sidehackers... absolutely the type of over-the-top character the Brains would grab on to and run with...which.

The S.O.L. catches fire a few times... by the "men's night" segment, I was half-expecting Crow's cigar to set something on fire.

I only need to say three more words: Timmy Bobby Rusty.


Favourite line: "I'm gonna take the crap out of this picture!"
