This was a very good movie for a Sylvester and Arnold role. The prison and escape plan was believable except for the comedic characters of S and A. Action placked and a good story to peek the interest. Not boring. But certainly too much testosterone. I guess that's what makes it so action packed.

I was suprised at how good this movie turned out.
I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. It did a nice job of keeping my interest while containing a lot of action and held my intellect, trying to figure out how the escape could work in the special dark site. Swartzennegger and Stallone interacted well.

I am a fan of this genre. I am a fan of Swartzenegger. I am lukewarm on Stallone but the reviews said they had fun and chemistry with each other. May be they did but Stallone, the director, and the script screwed the deal. I have only walked out of two other movies in my life but I almost walked out 2/3 of the way through this turkey. Stallone is so smug it was sick (not the good way). He seemed so charmed with himself he didn't seem like he needed to act. The script was a disaster with one improbable and stupid thing after another. The direction was awful. The whole movie was choppy and stupid. The last breakout scene at least had some action but silly. I would not have enjoyed this at home for $2.00. I wasted my time and money.

The trailer made the movie look interesting. Unfortunately the plot just did not make much sense. The best part of the movie is Arnold's sense of humor, he tried to carry the movie which was a very heavy lift, but even arnolds strength could not save this stinker. I wish he would stop making movies with Sly, its beneath him.

Loved the storyline and there was a twist at the end I did not see coming. Pretty good movie. Worth going out on a date to see.
