The Good- The script is surprisingly well-written. Stallone's methods of escape are explained in intricate detail, all of which are believable and logical. Stallone is still likeable as a lead actor and as usual, you find yourself rooting for him. The action is done old school, not much in the way of CGI (with the exception of a pull away shot of the hi-tech prison). The hits are brutal and when people are shot it looks real. Jim Cavizel is great as the soulless warden of the Tomb. He shows menace without raising his voice, but using his eyes and chillingly even tone to show he is a threat. He also has some good humorous villain moments. The plot is again, surprisingly tight. Everything intertwines and is explained in equal detail as Stallone's escape methods. Schwarzenegger is great in this movie. I can't remember the last time he was so solid. Most of his jokes hit and he even shows some decent acting chops.
The BAD- '50 cent' and the blonde who play Stallone's team come right out of a B-movie with their acting. There is also no chemistry between Stallone and his group. Fortunately, they are not in the movie very much. I guess between natural aging and plastic surgery, Stallone has lost some of his facial expressions. At times, especially when he smiles, you really can't tell. Not much, but some the dialogue falls flat.
THE DEAL- This movie is a pleasant surprise. A lot of critics are incorrectly labeling it as 'dumb fun' eh, no. The Expendables is dumb fun, Escape Plan is not. While there are a few B-movie moments, this movie is a top-notch action film that will have you engaged in the story. Stallone and Schwarzenegger play off each other well and the action is in your face and realistic. Even though they are older, when Sly and Arnold slap people around you still believe it. This long awaited team-up is everything an action fan could hope for.

Sylvester Stallone is Ray Breslin, a man wrongly incarcerated in a top-secret prison. I should rather not tell you much about the story and his character, except that he gets a help from one of his fellow inmates Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger), to escape from the jail run by a sadistic warden named Hobbes (Jim Caviezel). But Ray and Emil (and viewers) soon realize that this is the “most secure prison” in the world.

“Escape Plan” is an old-school prison-escape movie. It is fast-paced and action-packed, made with solid direction (by Mikael Håfström). While the basic idea of “the most secure prison” may be stretching credibility, it is fun nonetheless watching two stars teaming up for the big screen (though, as the story is basically about Ray, Stallone’s screen time is longer.)

The supporting cast includes Vincent D'Onofrio, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Amy Ryan and Faran Tahir. Except for Faran Tahir’s role, none of the characters are fleshed out enough, especially Jackson and Ryan’s that are underwritten and even pointless.

So finally Stallone and Schwarzenegger are in one movie together (and not in a cameo role). Acting-wise, both stars deliver more than satisfactory performances, and there is an impressive scene where Schwarzenegger (speaking in German) shows his acting skills. And of course as an action movie “Escape Plan” is very enjoyable.

Fast, raucous, adrenalized fun at its finest. If you're a fan of 80's style action movies, this will not disappoint.

Ray Breslin (Stallone) is a top notch security consultant that must break out of the depths of "The Tomb", an uberwicked security fortress/prison complete with futuristic translucent cells, a smart, sadistic warden (Jim Caviezel) and sci-fi costume inspired guards (Brit Vinnie Jones). Breslin (Stallone) teams up with another inmate, smack-talking Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) and the escape of a lifetime ensues, via torture, pursuit and the usual high stakes are on the line; their lives.

The greatest fun in this movie derives from Stallone and Schwarzenegger zinging each other. Here's a small sample:
Emil Rottmayer: "Who were you before you came in here?"
Ray Breslin: "I break out of prisons for a living. Someone wanted this place tested."
Emil Rottmayer: "You don't look that smart."
Ray Breslin: "You don't either."

There's plenty more where this came from and it makes you wish California hadn't hogged the big guy (Schwarzenegger) all to themselves when he did his stint as the their Gov.

Darn entertaining and Stallone's best in a while.

Enjoy!

Escape Plan is a fun action movie with two great stars: Schwarzenegger and Stallone. Ray Breslin is incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself and he needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars. You get a Blu-Ray, DVD, and a Digital Ultra Violet HD copy of the film in this release. The picture quality is great and the audio quality is terrific. There is 70 minutes of total bonus content plus an audio commentary. The supplements are solid and entertaining too because Arnie and Sly had a great time working together. Escape Plan (formerly known as Exit Plan and The Tomb) was a huge success overseas since it opened at number one in many countries outside the US.
