Sent to the rescue is Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell), former war hero now convicted criminal. To ensure the safe return of the President, Police Commissioner Bob Hauk (Lee Van Cleef), has had miniature explosive devices implanted in Plissken`s neck - if he gets the President out in 24 hours he gets a pardon, if not the bombs will detonate and rupture his major arteries!
