Solid action flick. Sly and Arnie are great (obvs).

The beginning and the first breakout is actually rather fun. But soon we know exactly what will happen: Breakout tester Stallone gets screwed over and ends up in the proverbial unbreakable jail. His team-up with Schwarzenegger there is surprisingly unspectacular. It doesn't help that the plot relies on a lot of coincidence, suspension of disbelief or horrid planning by the bad guys. The action packed finale can't really pull the ship around. I fear it's time to phase the fact that you get better results watching reruns from the former action stars.

Not brilliant, but worth a look for those who want to see Stallone and Schwarzenegger together in the same (improbable) story.

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.

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.
