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

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,...

Good Action Movie-

I was looking forward to this movie and seeing these two great stars together. Everything was predictable with the exception with the last 3 mins of the movie, totally didn't expect it. The story...

Escape Plan was awesome!!!

Loved it, and not just because the two leads are amazing (and aging pretty well, too). The script is very smart and clever. Great support cast, too. VERY enjoyable. I might need to see it again in the...

Escape Plan

Cavaziel and D'Onofrio or the two finest actors in this movie and stand amongst the cast of possibly the best actors currently in American theatre. Vincent covered himself with glory in Law & Order....

A male movie

I saw Escape Plan with my son, who wanted to see it. I enjoyed the movie but there was too many fights and too many beatings for me. I thoroughly enjoyed Jim Cavezel's portrayal of the villionous...

80's typical action movie, and loved every second!

Stallone and Arnold are getting older, but I can't help but want to support these guys movies every time they get to make one, because these types of movies I feel are slipping away with time. I grew...
