There's no getting around it: I liked this one.

Classic! Classic one-liners. Classic buddies. Classic action. Escape Plan is everything that we love about classic action movies and the genres high gods, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Escape Plan reeks with a lackadaisical ennui that makes it difficult to truly enjoy.

We've waited decades-DECADES-for these knuckleheads to do a team-up movie, and you give us an hour of hallway walk-and-talks? For shame!

Escape Plan's faults are obvious and hardly worth belabouring, but its successes are harder earned and carried off with a nostalgic, if not quite guilt-free, charm.

This film doesn't try to be anything more than what it is. What it does try to do is be a fun, engaging classic action movie with a few unexpected twists. And guess what: it succeeds. It's not great art, but it's great fun.

For old-school action fans, the sight of Arnie's automatic weapon spraying bullets that rip through flesh and send dark spatters of blood tracing patterns through the air like grim fireworks may still quicken the pulse...

The characters fit to a tee, except for 50 Cent, incongruously miscast as a computer nerd! The action is routine but the way they plan the escape is interesting and inspired.

As implausible macho nonsense goes, it's surprisingly good.

Escape Plan delivers an acceptable Friday action outing but its running on fumes by the time the heroes are tackling the last phases of its considerable gauntlet.

Dear devotees of finely drawn, understated cinema - here's your exit. This is "Escape Plan," a cinematic universe in which Stallone and Schwarzenegger play geniuses.

Ah-nald hasn't been this much fun in decades.
January 24, 2014
Diverting but ultimately disappointing, considering how often the prison genre has produced movies of nail-biting tension or irresistible campiness.
November 3, 2013
And so, as was inevitable, Stallone and Schwarznegger are together again and starring in their trademark (putatively) action flick
October 31, 2013
This is all completely ridiculous and sensationally entertaining.

...a disappointing yet sporadically engrossing throwback to the violent actioners of the '80s and '90s.
October 25, 2013
The most surprising thing about this movie, outside of its length, is just how unsurprising it really is, especially regarding its tired climax.
October 24, 2013
'Escape Plan' may finally unite Schwarzenegger and Stallone in co-starring roles, but it hardly seems like this is the story that makes the wait worthwhile.
October 24, 2013
Stallone and Schwarzenwegger deliver the action, drama and most importantly humor in this escapist entertainment
October 22, 2013
There are some surprises in this modestly budgeted action film, but not many. This is more about the fun of watching these two experienced action stars work these roles, and this plot, to perfection.
