"Escape Plan" is mostly a gray, thudding metal machine of throwback exploitation, but the goateed, goofy Ah-nold is so happy to be in the thick of an old-school bruiser again that he makes it feel like the dumb-fun flashback party it is.
This latest pairing of the two aging macho superstars actually has a functioning intelligence. And a sense of humor. Oh, and don't worry. Its violence quotient is everything fans of muscle-bound cinema could ask for.
for two guys who have both fought their way out of tougher, stupider, higher-concept ideas than this one, and looked better while doing it, "Escape Plan" suggests they may be trapped more by the past than any sort of tangible prison.
