Not great...but not horrible either.

Despite the fact I haven't been impressed with much of their work lately, you can't deny the fact that Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are the grandfathers of the action genre. So what's it like when you put the two of them together in a film (which should have happened a long time ago) and it's not one of those "Expendables" movies that play out like a bad fake, fan-made trailer on YouTube? Actually, you get a fairly decent film.

I wont' play coy here; "Escape Plan" isn't completely spectacular. The film has its problems. For example, Vinnie Jones is in the film and he's just lethargically playing the same character he's been riding on since his Guy Ritchie days (only, he's lost the unique wit and humor he had in those days) but at least he's not playing the Juggernaut in this film because that was just embarrassing for all of us. Secondly, the movie shifts tones during the climax and it was slightly jarring. The film goes from a movie about guys sneaking out of an inescapable prison to guys just deciding to shoot their way out. It goes from interesting to "eh, let's become a generic action film" very quickly. Finally, the movie has some unresolved plot threads towards its end and it make a mad dash like a demon is on its tail to try and get them resolved before the credits decide to shut the whole thing down.

However, despite the problems, the movie has its elements working for it and makes it a watchable film and something destined to be played numerous times on FX or Spike. Stallone and Schwarzenegger are terrific together and are giving performances that are probably the best they've done in the last decade. Plus, it's very clear Arnold is having a blast with his role and it was sorta infectious. Finally, Jim Caviezel is a decent antagonist as the film's evil warden to the high tech prison…that is, when you can hear him. Caviezel really enjoyed whispering all his lines.

"Escape Plan" may not be the most memorable film of either Stallone's or Schwarzenegger's career but the movie is mildly entertaining and worked for what it is.

Hi! My name is Rev. Ron and I love movies! So much so that I write a blog where I review whatever film I am currently watching (Old or new!). You can read a more in-depth review of this film (and others) at revronmovies.blogspot.com.

A forgettable but entertaining prison break

Prison Break had potential. A much awaited team-up between some accomplished action stars, shiny set pieces and an intriguing premise. The execution is sloppy, but still entertaining on occasion. Its premise is never fully explored and mostly glossed over and the plot is utterly predictable. Most of the action won't really make jaws drop, but Schwarzenegger and Stallone give dedicated performances. You won't remember most of it, but you'll definitely enjoy it.

Quintessential and entertaining action movie.

At last these two titans of the action film gender meet in a most entertaining movie. Rambo meets Terminator! And if you are keen to action films this will not disappoint you because it's charged with action practically from the first scene. With a quite complex plot in its structure, this movie takes you to an environment where our heroes require sharp thinking, quick, elaborated and many times courageous moves with the strategy of a master chess player in thinking and the skills of a samurai on the plentiful action scenes. I was delighted with the structure of the story where many diverse and apparently unknown elements come together to make the intricate plot so that both Sylvester and Arnold can develop their precious capacity in to the full and entertain us with what they can do best without an empty or boring moment. As extra positive bonus we have the likes of Jim Caviezel who delivers an astounding performance as the main villain of the film impersonated as a cold, calculating, cynical and bloody serious prison director and last but not least Sam Neill as the subdued prison doctor. We also enjoy the excellent performances of Vincent D'Onofrio as a treacherous and misleading agent, Faran Tahir as the religious prisoner and Amy Ryan as Stallone's sexy companion and colleague. This is top entertainment and you will be happy that your money was invested in seeing and enjoying this film.
