    Urban survival movies

    I'm a big fan of movies where the leads are out of their element and forced to survive. I'm not referring to horror movies where teens from the city gets mixed up with some small town locals. I'm talking about movies like The Warriors, Trespass or Judgement Night, where it takes place over the span of one night in some kind of urban city environment and gangs or just generally bad people are after them for whatever reason.

    Recently I grabbed the following movies with that particular theme:

    Jungleground
    Streets of Fire
    Enemy Territory
    Dangerous Game
    Final Jeopardy
    Chains
    Survive the Night

    Did I miss anything? Any other movies out there with that theme? Do you have any personal favs?

    I love the theme and movie that are mentioned as well............Deliverance popped into my head, but that's not urban

    If anything springs to mind I'll be glad to post it

    I watched a few of the movies so far and I thought I'd post my thoughts for anyone who may be into this particular urban survival theme like I am.

    Enemy Territory (1987)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092969/

    An insurance salesman inadvertently gets trapped after dark in an apartment building that is terrorized by a street gang called "The Vampires."
    Pretty standard urban survival tale--dude gets stuck overnight in an apartment complex and gets help from some of the locals, namely one guy who ends up getting caught up with him. The two fight their way out of the complex with hopes of making it until daybreak (which is apparently when the gang goes into hiding since they're "vampires"). Tony Todd plays the gang leader named "The Count". Decent flick overall.

    PROS: Good pacing, entertaining, decent 80's violence, interesting (albeit silly) gang.
    CONS: Lead guy is kind of annoying.

    6/10

    Final Jeopardy (1985)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0089143/

    A small-town couple find themselves stranded in an unfamiliar, and unfriendly, big city. Weaving in and out of the proceedings are a bunch of murderous criminals with names like DOA, Ice and Slash. The couple are in for a night that they won't forget.
    Richard Thomas plays the lead guy in this film. This is a made-for-TV movie though, so there isn't much violence here. And to be honest the gang isn't very menacing either, especially since at first it just seemed like they were just messing with the couple. It is pretty interesting though, especially since the couple traverse through the city quite a bit.

    PROS: Interesting, some okay tension, decent acting for this type of film.
    CONS: Lots of plot holes (but it shouldn't be taken seriously anyway). Not much violence.

    6/10

    Survive the Night (1993)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108259/

    Survive the Night aka Night Hunt is a made-for-TV drama chronicling the courage of three women who must leave a New York freeway to get gas in a part of town so bad that even the police avoid it. Once there, they end up fighting for their lives...
    This is another made-for-TV movie, but it actually had decent violence (unlike Final Jeopardy). The pacing is pretty good, but it's clear the budget wasn't really there since a lot of scenes looked like it was just filmed on a small set. The lead villain was also cartoonishly over the top. I still liked it to an extent, especially the end where the women had to make a final stand against the gang. On another note, it was amusing to see a young Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (The Wire) and Kathleen Robertson (Boss) in it.

    PROS: Decent cheesy violence, good pacing.
    CONS: Low budget, looked like it was all filmed on a set, cartoonish lead villain.

    6/10

    You should check out Tooth & Nail. Its from the second installment of 8 films to die for.
    Its definitely Urban Survival horror but with a post apocalyptic flavor to it.

    The Deathwish movies are awesome but specifically part 3 is EXACTLY what you're looking for, though there's no horror elements.

    I remember watching the Deathwish movies as a kid, but its been years so I may revisit. And it's fine if there's no horror elements, I'm not looking for horror movies anyway

    As many times as it takes

    Or 5 that's pretty much enough.
