Snake Plissken is once again called in by the United States government to recover a potential doomsday device from Los Angeles, now an autonomous island where undesirables are deported.
The movie was filmed almost entirely at night. In fact, the production went seventy days without a daylight shoot.

At about 1:02:20 into the movie, Snake is seen creating a diversion by stuffing a piece of news paper in the fuel filler in the right quarter panel on an early 80's Buick Riviera, and then lighting the paper on fire. Those model Riviera's had the fuel filler behind the rear license plate that flipped down like many GM cars of this era, not in the quarter panel. This was clearly fabricated for this scene.
