Screen shots from the infamous ice cream scene from “Assault on Precinct 13”. A little girl realizes that she has the wrong flavor of ice cream. She comes back to see Frank Doubleday as the “White Warlord” in the middle of brutalizing the ice cream man. He simple, coldly aims and fires a suppressed Mauser C-96 pistol through her ice cream cone and into her chest. He then returns to finishing off the ice cream man. This scene helped “Assault on Precinct 13” get an “X” rating for violence.
So I watched Escape From New York last night and, while I enjoyed it, I thought it didn’t live up to the hype. Sure, Snake Plissken is a bad ass (well, except for those pants), but my favorite character is Romero. Why doesn’t he ever get any love?
This little moment when he gives a point as he swishes away from Brain and Maggie is my favorite part of the movie.
