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 up on movies like Die Hard and Terminator, Rambo, Cliffhanger, etc. I miss these type of straight forward movies where you already know the beats. There will be a cool way these heroes get out of trouble, there will be a mini boss fight, than a final boss fight. Its predictable, cheesy lines, one liners, and always some scene where someone wields a huge ***gun and blows people away. It's a great popcorn flick, and its nice not always seeing the super young actors in every movie who are picture perfect. I hope these guys live forever!

This movie was NOTHING like I expected & that made it a great movie! Love Stallone & Swarznegger & expected their "usual" talent, but I was soooooo impressed with both of them. They both look great and their acting was wonderful! I was sooooo tense during the whole movie because it had you guessing the whole time & I love that about a movie. My husband kept laughing at me. Wonderful movie! Keep up the good work Sly & Arnold! You've still "got it"!

Not a bad movie but could have been done in 90 minutes making it bigger on action scenes which is why we go to this sort of thing. Arnold and Sly work well together and JC was fun as the prison warden.

I don't understand what people are complaining about. It's Arnold and Sly teaming up - expect explosions, death, and choppers. These aren't the type of movies you should be going into expecting a plot. I had a blast and so did the whole theatre, we were clapping and cheering throughout. A true classic from Sly and Arnold.

Jeez, these two never know when to quit...and I'm glad! I will be a fan of Schwarzenegger and Stallone forever. I love prison movies and this one is exciting. The main set is an awesome idea of what a privately owned maximum security prison could be in the not-so-distant future. Some of the one liners were goofy, but that is to be expected. These guys work well together. I think Jim Caviezel is awesome as the warden as well. A nice "escape" from reality for a couple hours.
