Great story and concept but Terrible casting and execution.

This movie is the typical predictable action movie that plays on tnt on a saturday evening. I was excited to see some1 resurrect the prison break concept but this movie was almost like a parody. I think the casting of Stallone and Arnold made the director go off track and turn the movie into sort of like a tribute to the action gods. it started suspenseful and intelligent but finished as a predictable action film with laughable situations that even a 5 year old could understand the whole thing from start to finish. bottom line if youre a stallone arnold fan then this movie is for you. if you are looking for something a bit more complex and mind blowing. you will be disappointed.

I loved it! Others say that this was predictable and the plot and casting needed work. I don't think so. Action packed and a great story. Worth the see! It's a good moving when the audiance is laughing, or shouting, or cheering at the same time! The ending had an awesome very unpredicatable twist. Blood and guts! and even some glory for the main characters played by Sylvester Stallon and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Love the new "Arnold line!"

Pretty Good...

I was not expecting much and even though it didn't blow it out of the water, it was still pretty good, it kept me in it.....dialog a bit on the slow side but Arnold and Stallone pull it off quite well, Oscar winning scenes by far, but I don't think anyone expects it......action scenes less than expected by far.

This comes out in the 80's or early 90's, One of the biggest hits of the year. Sadly it came now and to not much fanfare. But it was a hoot. I've been waiting for this movie for 20 years and I had a great time. No it's not Heat, another team up years in the making, but it's still better than most action crap they put out now. Way better than the two White House movies that came out this year. It knows what it is and doesn't try to be more than that. If you are a fan of either of these men or just like to have fun for a couple of hours, go see it.

Solid Action-Thriller

I like Escape Plan and overall it was solid entertainment and somewhat fresh. The plot of the movie was good. One of the best part about the movie was Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger on screen, they had solid performances. Another part of the movie the was good was the action scenes specially at the end of the story. Escape Plan also had a few classic twist and a payback ending.
