Escape Plan reeks with a lackadaisical ennui that makes it difficult to truly enjoy.
April 11, 2019
We've waited decades-DECADES-for these knuckleheads to do a team-up movie, and you give us an hour of hallway walk-and-talks? For shame!
June 22, 2016
Escape Plan delivers an acceptable Friday action outing but its running on fumes by the time the heroes are tackling the last phases of its considerable gauntlet.
January 24, 2014
Diverting but ultimately disappointing, considering how often the prison genre has produced movies of nail-biting tension or irresistible campiness.
November 3, 2013
And so, as was inevitable, Stallone and Schwarznegger are together again and starring in their trademark (putatively) action flick
October 25, 2013
The most surprising thing about this movie, outside of its length, is just how unsurprising it really is, especially regarding its tired climax.
October 24, 2013
'Escape Plan' may finally unite Schwarzenegger and Stallone in co-starring roles, but it hardly seems like this is the story that makes the wait worthwhile.
October 20, 2013
"One man was left to rot for three days" says Schwarzenegger of the brutal regime's treatment of a prisoner. The result, you think, would look something like Stallone.

Neither Stallone nor Schwarzenegger act - or recognize - their ages. Their enjoyment, even in such a cheesy production, is contagious.

Would that the rest of the film were as engaging as Schwarzenegger; instead, it's a routine programmer that's short on thrills but long on tedium.
October 18, 2013
One of the most cockamamie premises in the history of movies.
October 18, 2013
Escape Plan is entertaining enough to keep it from being 'bad,' but there's so little different or interesting or truly engaging that it's not very good either.
October 18, 2013
Fans might not mind that the idea of pairing Stallone and Schwarzenegger for the first time had more potential than is fulfilled here.
October 18, 2013
No geezer jokes for Rambo and the Terminator in this one.
October 18, 2013
The arrival of former football star Vinnie Jones as panto henchman Lester Clark offers Escape Plan its single source of tension. And only if you bet which muscleman will predictably give Hollywood's most unlikely imposter the biggest kicking of his life.
October 18, 2013
Nothing here is as clever as it is desperately trying to be, but Stallone and Schwarzenegger are game to give us a good time.
October 18, 2013
Escape Plan is the newest vehicle for aging action stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and, in this case, it's a lemon or possibly an Edsel.
October 18, 2013
Stallone and Schwarzenegger are a couple of likeable old galoots, but they don't have much chemistry here.
October 18, 2013
A shoddy, silly, testosterone-fueled action film throwback, which teeters between clever self parody and an embarrassingly bad attempt to create an actual action blockbuster.
October 18, 2013
Stallone spoils the dumb-fun mood. He wears the stoical gaze of someone who knows he's being buried alive.
