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.

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.

"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.

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.

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 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.
October 18, 2013
One of the most cockamamie premises in the history of movies.

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.

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.
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
It's almost the team-up movie you wanted 25 years ago, kind of!
October 18, 2013
No geezer jokes for Rambo and the Terminator in this one.
October 18, 2013
It was nice to see the guys back in action, and it reminds me of what popcorn movies were made of.

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's third-wind career isn't damaged while Schwarzenegger's comeback is certainly helped, playing burly second banana to a cagey ape, the George Kennedy for Cool Hand Sly.
