San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
So chalk Escape Plan up as a pretty good action movie given an extra edge by the intelligent use of its two main actors.

A Stallone / Schwarzenegger film that isn't completely beneath them.

Any prison-break yarn that includes Arnold Schwarzenegger delivering the line “You hit like a vegetarian” is OK by me.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

A display of old-school muscle-buddy connivance that’s as flatly preposterous as it is shamelessly entertaining.

A highly enjoyable slice of in-one-eye, out-the-other nonsense. It may coast on the charisma of its leads at times, and it’s hardly deep,...

Escape Plan was awesome!!!

Good Movie "Escapism"!

By barketfamily
Great action...Sly and Arnold do not disappoint...Just what you want from these guys. Sam Neill is way under-used. Four out of five popcorns for this flick....

Great story and concept but Terrible casting and execution.

Sly and Arnold are GREAT together
