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.

Diverting but ultimately disappointing, considering how often the prison genre has produced movies of nail-biting tension or irresistible campiness.

And so, as was inevitable, Stallone and Schwarznegger are together again and starring in their trademark (putatively) action flick

This is all completely ridiculous and sensationally entertaining.

...a disappointing yet sporadically engrossing throwback to the violent actioners of the '80s and '90s.

The most surprising thing about this movie, outside of its length, is just how unsurprising it really is, especially regarding its tired climax.

'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.

Stallone and Schwarzenwegger deliver the action, drama and most importantly humor in this escapist entertainment

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.

It's regrettable that a movie that had built quite a bit of credibility stoops to such a hackneyed ending. But that's not enough to ruin the evening. This is an entertaining couple of hours.

Hafstrom tries to pretend his stars are about 40 and, for the most part, it works.

This functional thumper generally gets the job done, plodding merrily, if unremarkably, through the generic set pieces, making a passable fist of well-worn material.

"One man was left to rot for three days" says Schwarzenegger of the brutal regime's treatment of a prisoner. The result, you think, would look something like Stallone.

Neither Stallone nor Schwarzenegger act - or recognize - their ages. Their enjoyment, even in such a cheesy production, is contagious.

Stallone continues on the comeback trail ... a brawny action thriller that benefits from decent CG effects and shrewd supporting turns by Schwarzenegger and, as the sadistic warden, Jim Caviezel.

I was shocked but this Sly/Arnold combo package flick is far more entertaining as an action film than you might expect. Thanks to a clever twist, it's actually a lot of fun.

Would that the rest of the film were as engaging as Schwarzenegger; instead, it's a routine programmer that's short on thrills but long on tedium.

In a glorious moment of unified defiance, Stallone and Schwarzenegger look directly at the camera and raise a middle finger at anyone assuming that time has run out on these two aging heavyweights.
