This pairing of the two 80's action legends was surprisingly enjoyable, with a few good plot twists. The action scenes are rather choppy and sometimes over-the-top, but that's to be expected of Arnold and Sly.

A much better theme than many action flicks though predictable.

Watchable. Has a couple of good Ah-nold teases.

An enjoyable hollwood action movie that is fun while lasts but you'll probably have forgotten it within a week. A more imaginative ending would certainly have been likey to add an extra half star to my rating.

First of all i'm a huge Stallone and Arnie fan and this film doesn't dissapoint, It's full of twists and turns that keep you entertained, Stallone and Arnie connect straight away more than they did in Expendables, Although none of them hold a gun until the final 20 minutes, It's got some good action scenes, The story is great and has more A list celebs than you think, With some good humour thrown in it's the perfect guy film that won't disappoint and may even entertain the women who get dragged to see this.

Escape Plan is a lot of fun with some good action scenes, and features the kind of performances you expect from the movies two leads. That being said, you can't help but feel the movie had the potential to be better than it eventually turned out.

Escape Plans strength lies in the two leads of Stallone and Arnold, aside from that it wasn't anything too special, but it was still fun. Even though there were some very improbable scenarios, and some confusing plot elements, Escape Plan was still entertaining

Couldn't quite give this 3 stars. If this film was made in 1989. then by all means it is easily a 4 star film. Let's be honest folks, the imagination can't quite put together two sagging old men to escape a prison like this. The film had potential, but, the casting could have been so much better. I thought the plot was very fresh and the length of the film was ideal, but, fuck, the casting was terrible. It's a one thumb up for me unfortunately.

Will the storyline blow you away? No.
Are the characters well-developed? Probably not.

But is it an entertaining and fun escape movie with 2 of the all-time great action movie stars? You bet.

Not going to win any Oscars, but great for an entertaining ride on a Friday movie night.

We finally get to see the two biggest action stars working side by side. I think it is worth seeing. Just wish the movie would have kept the original title The Tomb, and had a couple of rewrites.

A undiscovered Classic! Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sly Stallone, for the first time, combine to make Escape Plan. Both Sly and Arnold play strong Alpha male roles; Stallone plays an escape artist and Schwarzenegger's character is a super criminal. The character driven story line has strong plot twists which keeps the viewer guessing. Sly's character is paid to try an escape out of a unbreakable prison. Supporting actor Jim Caviezel stands out as the antagonist warden (smart/adaptable) which spices up the story. A solid film. 3 and half to 4 stars.

Has the usual action movies cliches but manages to be entertaining for most of the time.

Still waiting for the film to pick up its pace, just like its two leads.

Not that great a movie for these two. Could have been much better!

As with most action movies and this cast- it has its plot holes but overall is enjoyable, well acted, has a decent "who done it" script, and is forward moving.
½ April 11, 2016
Fairly routine actioner here. As the cast and marketing features would suggest, this is a fairly typical action type film popularized since the 80s. If you're looking for some enjoyable entertainment where you can relax and turn your brain off, then Escape Plan is a fairly decent movie to watch. If your looking for thoughtful and intelligent story telling, this movie is likely not your movie. For some good old fashioned fun action from two of the genres' legends, this movie will meet general expectations.

Always is good to see two icons of the 80's action movies together.
½ March 5, 2016
It's highly implausible and filled with dull dialogue, but you have to admire its sleek and fresh adaptation of a typical prison break movie. Are Stallone and Schwarzenegger at their best? Hell no. But speaking of acting, it is a lot of fun seeing Jim Caviezel antagonize these heavyweights as the prison's eccentric warden. Great popcorn fun.
