Reviews

Prison-break action film starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Structural security specialist Ray Breslin (Stallone) is paid to enter high security prisons and escape while highlighting weaknesses in their apparently escape-proof systems. But when he is framed and incarcerated in a prison of his own design which is run by the relentless Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel), he has to put his incomparable skills to the ultimate test. However, in order to escape this particular prison he'll need the help of another insider. Luckily he meets fellow prisoner and old-timer Swan Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) who agrees to help Ray in his escape, but only if Ray agrees to free him while doing so...

So, if you were born in the 80's or earlier, you are going to enjoy this movie! Not to say anyone else would not, but the newer generation who look at these type of movies far too critically will be disappointing, those of you who enjoy a good action movie without needing to study the finer details or pick holes in the plot line this is a movie for you!

Both actors play the part well, personally, I feel Schwarzenegger steals the show, there is one part of the film, I won't spoil it, but it happens near the end, and is in slow-motion, that is possibly one of the greatest scenes that Schwarzenegger has ever been in, that would pretty much make you want to applaud the screen, it encapsulates so many of those moments in the great 80's action movie era!

Jim Caviezel is excellent as the warden, playing the ice-cool part to perfection, Vinnie Jones is, Vinnie Jones, Sam Neill briefly appears and, as always, plays his part well.

So overall, if, like me, you watched the trailer and thought "I simply HAVE to see this" then you really should!

Ray Breslin is the world's foremost authority on structural security.

After analysing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test.

He's framed and incarcerated in a master prison he inadvertently designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars.....

It's been promised for over twenty years. The two greatest action stars of all time are now finally in a movie together, in proper roles, and thank goodness it wasn't as cops in drag as promised in 1992.

Mach people will, and have balked at the idea of two aged action stars still trying to command the big screen, but there are a few of us who know what to expect from a film like this, and it doesn't fail to deliver, in droves.

Stallone is as expected. He is the serious one. Out of all the films the two made in the eighties, Stallones movies were more, for a better word, real, than Arnies alien, cyborg, rekall type stuff.

Arnie on the other hand is having a ball in his role, which is nothing more than creating diversions for Stallone by going up to someone and criticising their mother, several times over.

Add a generic Vinnie Jones as the main henchman, and Caviezel doing his best Alan Rickman impression, and you get the movie fanboys have been waiting for for a long, long time.

For some, including myself, this movie is the equivalent of the coffee shop scene in 'Heat', not in quality, for sure, just for the whole nostalgia thing.

If you are not a fan of the two actors, this will be just another generic action movie, but for people who have had these two stars in their movie going life since the eighties, this is something special, and thankfully, its as good as you would expected it to be.

Plus it could open Arnie up to a new franchise. As the Divertinator, or the Distractinator if you would...

Good story line, easy to follow and a decent film to watch.

Plenty of Stallone Schwarzenegger action and for two ageing stars it was good.

Worth watching.

I found this film watchable and I don't regret that I saw it - but having waited sooooo long for a movie in which Stallone and Schwarzenegger would appear together (for real, not just in short glimpses) I was a little bit disappointed. It was definitely not even half as good as I hoped. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Ray Breslin (Stallone) is a highly paid specialist who offers a unique kind of services - he gets incarcerated in prisons to test their security. He usually finds a lot of flaws, including in the strictest high security facilities... One day he is send to test a very, very exceptionnal place, run by a sadistic warden (Jim Caviezel). Once inside, he quickly realises that there is something very wrong both with this place and his own situation. He also befriends another inmate, a certain Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger), who seems to be the object of particular attention from all the guards... And then the story begins.

Before going into the film itself, for once I decided to beef up my review with some bulls**t psychology, so here it is. Did you notice how often Stallone plays characters escaping or running away from something/somebody?

Format: DVD
Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) has an unusual job; he tests the security of prisons by getting himself put inside in order to break out. No one inside the prisons knows who he is - the man who wrote the book about prison security - except for his partner, Lester Clark (Vincent D'Onofrio) and colleagues Abigail (Amy Ryan) and Hush (Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson). When a particular job comes his way, to test a secret, privately funded prison for prisoners that no country wants on its books, Breslin agrees to do it. But it's a set up. Breslin, beaten and drugged, finds himself in a glass and steel cell and relies on the help of fellow prisoner, Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to devise an escape plan. Ruthless egomaniac, Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel) makes it his number one task to make sure neither of them get away.

Escape Plan (2013) is similar to a number of prison escape movies, with the usual cruel warden, sadistic guards, prisoners abused mentally and physically, the usual antagonisms between groups of prisoners, and violent outbreaks. This has a great cast with Vinnie Jones playing the usual nutcase/hardcase, Sam Neill as the prison doctor, and Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger teaming up. It's certainly entertaining viewing and something I will definitely, and happily, watch again if not just for the sheer joy of watching Stallone and Schwarzenegger interact on screen. Of course, there were silly bits. I mean, if someone is dangling from a helicopter ladder and being shot at, wouldn't the pilot just carefully fly the helicopter that bit further away, at least out of gunshot range? But that's Hollywood.
