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.

This is all completely ridiculous and sensationally entertaining.

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

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.

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.

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.

Arnold. Stallone. Hitting. Guns. Catchphrases. If you want more, keep holding your breath; for me, this is guy-movie junkfood far more rib-stickingly satisfying than either Expendables or The Last Stand.

It's almost the team-up movie you wanted 25 years ago, kind of!

It was nice to see the guys back in action, and it reminds me of what popcorn movies were made of.

Stallone's third-wind career isn't damaged while Schwarzenegger's comeback is certainly helped, playing burly second banana to a cagey ape, the George Kennedy for Cool Hand Sly.

Fans of '80s and '90s action films should revel in its awesome nostalgia.

Like the best action movies of this kind, Escape Plan is dumb fun.

Despite its faults, Escape Plan whips up enough nostalgic fun from two hard-hitting action heroes who haven't completely forgotten how to hammer an audience with gratuitous thrills.

Barely fresh. Stallone. Schwarzenegger. In the same movie. Let the debate rage over who is the worst actor. And somewhere in all that bad acting is an equally bad plot.
