Escape Plan: A Solid “A’ight”

Escape Plan is predictable. Stallone and Schwarzenegger on the screen together is the main reason for the going to see the film. Judging it on that basis, Escape Plan is an entertaining couple hours. The most immediate pitfall is the age factor—Stallone and Schwarzenegger are 67 and 66, respectively. And while they are both in good shape for their age, they are both eligible for membership in AARP. As such, they are about 20 years past the action hero bad-***cut-off. Escape Plan succeeds because it found a way for Stallone and Schwarzenegger to be semi-plausible action heroes, a prison break thriller.

I grew up watching Sly and Arnold, but the time has come for them to try different types of roles, become guest stars in other movie franchises or just retire and enjoy spending their millions! Nice try, but no cigar guys! I will say that is was nice to see Jim Caviezel back on the big screen once again after a long hiatus!

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised by this movie! Concept of an inescapable prison was interesting. The plot was pretty easy to follow, typical fight scenes with Stallone and Arnold going at it with different inmates. I didn't know the guy from Person of Interest was in it with a key role and he kind of played the same soft spoken role but with and evil twist. I would recommend for a Matinee if you have nothing to do!

Starts out relatively smart & sharp. Ends up dumb & dull.

What could have been excellent popcorn entertainment is completely undone by its repeated disregard for logic & common sense. The TV sitcom directing and mediocre special effects didn't help either.

Predictable story, but great action

Yeah, it's true if you were looking for a great plot, go and look somewhere else. But let's be honest, you probably already new that. Let's face it, your main reason to see this movie are probably their stars - Stallone and Schwarzenegger. Both actors do not disappoint and make this a great action movie.
