There's no getting around it: I liked this one.

Classic! Classic one-liners. Classic buddies. Classic action. Escape Plan is everything that we love about classic action movies and the genres high gods, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Escape Plan's faults are obvious and hardly worth belabouring, but its successes are harder earned and carried off with a nostalgic, if not quite guilt-free, charm.

This film doesn't try to be anything more than what it is. What it does try to do is be a fun, engaging classic action movie with a few unexpected twists. And guess what: it succeeds. It's not great art, but it's great fun.

For old-school action fans, the sight of Arnie's automatic weapon spraying bullets that rip through flesh and send dark spatters of blood tracing patterns through the air like grim fireworks may still quicken the pulse...

The characters fit to a tee, except for 50 Cent, incongruously miscast as a computer nerd! The action is routine but the way they plan the escape is interesting and inspired.

As implausible macho nonsense goes, it's surprisingly good.

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
October 22, 2013
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.
October 21, 2013
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.
October 19, 2013
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.
