The Italian Stalion and The Governator team up!
"You hit like a vegetarian."

I was surprised that I actually ended up enjoying this film so much considering I was expecting this to be another Expendables 2 fiasco. Directed by Mikael Hafstrom (1408, The Rite), Escape Plan had an interesting premise, but the truth of the matter is I was drawn to it because I wanted to see the Italian Stalion and the Governator sharing leading roles for the first time. If this film would've taken place in the 80's or early 90's it would've been a box office hit and an instant classic. I'm sure that I at least would've given this film a much higher rating considering I was a huge fan of these cheesy and brainless shoot-em-up films during the 90's, but now my taste for this genre has cooled down and I found several flaws within the story. Despite those flaws, I still had a great time watching these two legends play off each other sharing some great chemistry and charisma together. My enjoyment of Escape Plan might be influenced by a high degree of nostalgia, but I'd still recommend this film.

The screenplay written by Miles Chapman centers on an eminent authority on structural security, Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone), who enters hundreds of prisons as an undercover prisoner and uses his skills to escape from it unveiling its flaws in the process. After accepting his next assignment he's framed and sent to a maximum security prison run by the warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel) which has been designed based on Ray's own recommendations. Ray teams up with another prisoner named Emit Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and together they begin searching for flaws in the system in order to escape, but Hobbes keeps a close watch on them once he realizes who Ray really is. It won't be an easy task, but Ray has managed to find flaws in every system and he will need to do it once more if he wants to leave this place.

In general prison break movies appeal to me (I was a huge fan of the first two seasons of Prison Break) so this film presented an interesting premise. There were several flaws and twists that didn't work, but in general I had a good time with this suspenseful thriller (and when I say suspenseful I don't mean it in the way Paul Greengrass delivers tension, but in a much lighter but enjoyable way). The film does reach a point where it begins to feel overlong and a bit ridiculous (mostly around the third act), but I still thought it was worth it and that Arnie stole the show with his usual gags and one liners. The villains were underdeveloped and a bit over the top, but I was still glad to see Caviezel back in an important role. Escape Plan is an entertaining film that will quickly be forgotten, but works as an escapism from a dull and boring day.

Summary above is incorrect
Breslin did not design the prison himself. Hobbes designed the prison based on the book of Breslin's research. If he designed it himself he would not need to decipher its flaws, as he would know them. Neither would he design a prison which could be escaped from! Also it is not likely he would publish his research on how to escape from prisons! Anybody could then get his book and make use of its solutions.

Not worth the Hype..!!!
Arnold and Sly when you see these two biggies together all you can expect is fun and bonanza but i have few words for you .."disappointment". i went into the movie with so much expectation but all i got was disappointment... Arnold never really had much to do ,if you expecting some great dialogs too..better go off to a nap then. sly carries the entire movie with no god damn plot in it...although he has acted his part with sincerity but the spark is missing..!! so if you expecting some die hard or expendables stuff and then stay away its just a movie with bad plot trying to get away with great class actors.although i wish Arnold had something more to do..action sequence are very few too...!!

Action giants Stallone and Schwarzenegger fill the screen with the expected fistfights, shootouts, and stern-faced machismo, but are also afforded several clever moments.
The very conceit of a muscular genius who breaks out of prisons for a handsome living seems wildly far-fetched. Partner him with another burly brainiac and toss them into a virtually inescapable facility and you have "Escape Plan." Yet while the premise is certainly preposterous, as are the surmounting obstacles obstructing the detainees' freedom, the fun is impressively consistent. Action giants Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger fill the screen with the expected fistfights, shootouts, and stern-faced machismo, but are also afforded several clever moments of intricate plotting for their daring getaways. Perhaps it's too much to believe an ex-lawyer could be seasoned in not only law, but also computer programming, medicine, chemistry, nautical tools, and hand-to-hand combat, but if one can look past such diverse proficiencies, "Escape Plan" rarely slows down.

Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) has a very unique set of skills. Able to find the flaws in any prison facility, Breslin inserts himself into correctional institutions and then breaks out to demonstrate their weaknesses. When a government agent offers Breslin double his normal fee (a staggering $5 million) to test a non-sanctioned experimental prison, his partners Abigail (Amy Ryan) and Hush (Curtis Jackson) urge him to decline - but the confident escape artist is intrigued by the challenge. Once there, Breslin realizes he's been set up and discovers he's trapped in a steel labyrinth designed specifically against his techniques of escape. Now, with no help from the outside and a sadistic warden (Jim Caviezel) monitoring his every move, Breslin must team up with cunning inmate Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to plan the biggest prison break of his career – to save his life.

With this plot and cast, "Escape Plan" is what "The Expendables" should have been. In many ways, it's reminiscent of guilty pleasure shoot-'em-up extravaganzas from the '90s (with numerous examples starring Stallone and Schwarzenegger individually). But it's not enough simply to place two of the biggest action stars of yesteryear together on screen – and with the extensive character development and detailed premise, this hard-edged actioner recognizes the necessity of supplemental theatrical constitution. Slow-motion, heavy artillery, physical violence, a welcomingly age-appropriate love interest, an inordinately felonious villain, and thuggish henchmen further adorn what would have been a run-of-the-mill thriller. Somewhere amidst all of the over-the-top idiosyncrasies and sardonic dialogue, an undeniable bit of entertainment arises, managing intermittently to outpace the imperfections of this take on "The Count of Monte Cristo" (or harbinger of the upcoming "Oldboy" remake).

The title sequence abruptly cuts off the opening scene, as if the editors had to work with grossly insufficient footage. The brilliancy of Breslin's initial breakout is hampered by a replaying of the entire ordeal, adding in footage like the step-by-step spoiling of a magic trick. And Breslin accepts the new job without any real hesitation, as if scripting believable discord would have slowed down the narrative too much. And yet, with the inclusion of intentional humor (and plenty of unintentional tackiness), amusing camaraderie, unexpected peril, and the bracing revelation that the prison break mastermind depends not only on studying layouts and routines, but also requires inside and outside help, "Escape Plan" holds its own as a sturdy example of silly but cool filmmaking. Refreshingly, he also always has a "Plan B" that can be utilized when procedures become predictable.

A bit silly but entertaining
An entertaining action movie, belonging to the "escape from prison" sub genre, starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Stalone is Ray Breslin, a sort of consultant that is usually thrown (undercover) in prison to test their security in order to turn them increasingly escape-proof. One day he is asked by an apparent CIA agent to do this sort of job for a clandestine Guantanamo-type prison. Off he goes, but he soon learns this was an entrapment and the prison authorities have no intention of letting him go. In jail he becomes friends with fellow prisoner Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger), a German who has information on a shady financier but is unwilling to disclose it to the very interested prison authorities. Soon Breslin and Rottmayer team together to investigate what is going on, and they find (SPOILER ALERT) that they are one a huge tanker type ship in high seas, so that escape seems almost impossible. On the other hand, we know nothing is impossible in movies for Stallone and the "Gobernator".

Silly but fun, and well made (by Swedish director Mikael Halfstrom) for what it is. Stallone and Schwarzenegger remain credible action movie stars, despite both being in their mid sixties when they filmed this. Jim Caviezel plays the evil prison warden. Also with Sam Neill (!), a strange casting choice for an action film like this, playing the conscience troubled prison doctor.

Stallone and Schwarzenegger...together at last!
"Escape Plan" isn't the greatest film ever made. But it is a fun, non-stop thrill ride B-movie that delivers the dream team we've always wanted...Arnie and Sly! Yes, they've teamed up in the over-the-top, cheesy Expendables films but "Escape Plan" is a more satisfying and better quality film.

Rambo...Terminator...Jesus...John Trent...50 Cent...yeah, the cast is pretty awesome for this "prison break" flick. Jim Caviezel almost steals the show as the "evil" warden. We all know Sly and Arnie are in their mid-60's but man do they still kick butt! Plus they're still literally ripped...like bulging...like veins sticking out all over the place ripped! We had a blast watching this and I recommend it to any action fan, especially the 80's action crowd. There's great one-liners, slow motion shoot outs, explosions, prison shanks, and all sort of bad ass action.

I really hope this does well at the box office because it is an entertaining film that's way better than "The Last Stand" and "A Bullet To The Head". But I wouldn't be surprised if those films have turned some movie goers off. A real action fan will love this flick though. Go check it out! Get to da choppa!!!!

Clash of two titans ...
He he. You hit like a vegetarian!

Now this was a movie to sit back and enjoy watching two old action veterans doing it all over again. Who thought these two gentlemen would be completely extinguished and only live on their well-deserved reputation of the past, was definitely wrong. Forget "The Expendables", "The Last Stand" and "Bullet to the head", and don't assume that this movie is comparable. Stallone and Schwarzenegger once again prove that they are still able to present a movie that's entertaining, action-packed and dressed with a touch of humor. There is even a glimpse of a story. How is that possible ! Obviously you can see that some years have passed after they have been rolling their biceps frightfully in "Conan" and "Rambo". But they still look tough enough and are able to kick some butt.

Admittedly the topic "Escaping from a prison" isn't very original. The fact that Ray Breslin (Sly) is an expert in this field and volunteers to be locked into such facilities to find the weaknesses and always manages to escape , I found a brilliant idea. The ultimate test he has to take is on an unknown place for his team and turns out to be a hard mission to deal with . Emil Rottmayer (Arnie) is also locked up in this prison and eventually helps to ensure that Ray can escape and catch the person that set him up in the first place.

Stallone plays a convincing role as an expert and I'm sure he kept training hard in all these years since he still looks stunningly muscled. Schwarzenegger also still has rock hard muscles, only his facial features betray his upcoming retirement. To my surprise he tries a rather successful attempt at acting. It's not just a mumbled English with a heavy Austrian accent. No way. Sometimes there are full dialogs, sometimes surprisingly with a comedic twist. The moment he starts whining in his own mother tongue while in the isolation cell, is actually hilarious but also admirable convincing. The scene on the stairs where they make a snapshot made me laugh so hard I almost had tears in my eyes . I repeated that fragment probably five times ! The action part is similar to the better films in which both men have acted and not the dumb violence as used in "Commando" or the latest "Rambo" movie which apparently was intended to get the score of shot opponents as high as possible. I thought the end was perhaps a bit exaggerated and over the top. But that didn't really bother me at all.

The supporting roles weren't that bad either. Jim Caviezel played convincingly the ice-cold prison director Hobbes . Even 50 Cent didn't irritate me this time and wasn't that bad.

Are you in for a decent and nicely put together action movie, then "Escape Plan" is a must see. It's filled with guaranteed action scenes and humorous one-liners . Sly and Arnie thus prove that they really are the crème de la crème in this genre . Hopefully there will be even more enjoyable movies like this in the future !

Yes, another prison escape movie, but it was actually enjoyable
How could a film with both Stallone and Arnie be bad, well it is possible, but not this time. I won't reveal too much because it may ruin the intro to the movie, but suffice to say, Arnie appears a little later in the movie. Stallone's face looks like it's made of silly putty, but Arnie's actually not looking too bad, neither are into the naked topless thing these days, which is understandable considering their age. There is a great balance of humor and intensity in this film, there moments of genuine suspense, and a few surprises. The sets were great, story had original elements to it. Plenty of punch ups, good body count, lots of action, and a few remotely possible gimmicks...possibly a whole mythbusters season worth of investigation in this one movie. Nice to see some direction in the fight scenes without using so many angles and shots, that it's almost dizzy to watch, it was more old skool, much more enjoyable. Ending was slightly confusing for me,few tiny holes I thought, but still worth a strong 7.
