* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eKDfmGpUfI The ending]]. "I told you you'd better hope I don't make it back."
** Really, it's a meta moment of awesome for John Carpenter. In a day and age where most action movies absolutely ''have'' to have a world saving ending or at least a happy ending, Escape From L.A (as Creator/RogerEbert put it) goes for broke and actually has the guts to end its movie by [[spoiler: having its protagonist actually set off the doomsday device, causing the whole world to go down the shitter.]]
* The "Bangkok Rules" scene wasn't bad. "Nobody draws until [this can] hits the ground." {throws can in the air, shoots everyone, can hits the ground} "Draw."
* As well as the basketball scene, especially once you realize that Creator/KurtRussell actually made all those shots (including the full-court one) ''all by himself''.
* Plenty of people think the whole movie is awesome.
* Also in the end after all of humanity is without electricity. Snake in a nonchalant way finds a broken cigarette on the ground and smokes it before BreakingTheFourthWall.
* Snake's final battle with [[BigBad Cuervo]].
* Who is it that kills Cuervo in the end? [[spoiler: Map-To-The-Stars-Eddie.]]
