It's almost the team-up movie you wanted 25 years ago, kind of!

It was nice to see the guys back in action, and it reminds me of what popcorn movies were made of.

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.

Fans of '80s and '90s action films should revel in its awesome nostalgia.
October 18, 2013
Like the best action movies of this kind, Escape Plan is dumb fun.
October 18, 2013
Despite its faults, Escape Plan whips up enough nostalgic fun from two hard-hitting action heroes who haven't completely forgotten how to hammer an audience with gratuitous thrills.

Barely fresh. Stallone. Schwarzenegger. In the same movie. Let the debate rage over who is the worst actor. And somewhere in all that bad acting is an equally bad plot.
October 18, 2013
Not perfect, but it's a fun-filled eighties-style action throwback that should delight fans of both icons.

Schwarzenegger misses no opportunity to be hilarious. How many actors can make you chuckle even when they're being waterboarded?
October 18, 2013
Stallone still struggles to recapture the heroic prowess of his youth, but Schwarzenegger's having the time of his life as Sly's comic foil.

As we pause in anticipation of Oscar season, it's nice to have some good dumb fun to keep us company.
October 18, 2013
The film has a clever premise and, until a predictably generic climax, follows through on it with a neat if faulty logic.
October 18, 2013
You know not to expect something deep and meaningful when a movie stars Stallone and Schwarzenegger, and indeed this is pretty much what we expect: a slick thriller that's utterly preposterous but not quite stupid.
October 17, 2013
This is the action version of those movies with ensemble casts of older British actors being adorably British together.

Escape Plan is cotton candy cinema, and about as architecturally substantial. It's a brisk two hours spent with a couple of VCR-era legends...executed with enough gumption to make the film a fun if frivolous escape.
October 17, 2013
Features two action hero workhorses from the 1980s, but the film's decrepit script is the only throwaway relic in this otherwise entertaining action thriller.
October 17, 2013
More banter and character interest would have livened things up but it's a solid action thriller that shows the stars are still prepared to sweat it even if the pay cheques boast a few less zeroes.
October 17, 2013
All in all, "Escape Plan" does what it sets out to do.
October 17, 2013
It's not a movie about two old guys who come back, but a straight-ahead action movie meant to be taken on its own terms.
October 17, 2013
"Escape Plan" is mostly a gray, thudding metal machine of throwback exploitation, but the goateed, goofy Ah-nold is so happy to be in the thick of an old-school bruiser again that he makes it feel like the dumb-fun flashback party it is.
