Having seen a trailer at the beginning of another film, this movie looked like a bit of fun so it was worth the very modest expenditure, if only to see Stallone and Arnie together. Neither are the greatest actors in the world but you always know what to expect; non-stop action, a simple plot, classic one-liners and lots of general silliness making a hugely entertaining film.

We were not disappointed. Stallone plays a successful prison tester, spending his life escaping to highlight flaws in security. Arnie is a long term inmate of a secret, privately funded `escape proof' prison where the nation's most unwanted are housed. Jim Caviezel plays the warder and Vinnie Jones, surprise, surprise, is his thuggish sidekick while Stallone's shifty boss is excellently played by Vincent D'Onofrio. With the cast in place you have the ingredients for a cracking bit of entertainment; all that is needed is a half decent script and a director who knows how to shoehorn every action element into the approved formula and, hey presto, a very acceptable movie is born.

It was never going to win any Oscars. There are no outstanding performances, the characters are monolithic, the plot ridiculously simple and the outcome is never in doubt, but it is a great ride nonetheless. In this respect it perfectly fulfils its role; providing a splendid bit of brain-out entertainment while giving Sly and Arnie a chance to do what they do best. It is an easy film to sneer at but it doesn't pretend to do anything other than provide some real old-school classic 80's action. Splendid stuff; just open a bottle of wine, disengage those higher cognitive functions, get comfy on the sofa on a wet Sunday afternoon and let this entertaining nonsense take the reins. Silly, indeed, but most excellent and hugely entertaining.

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!

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?

It’s been amazing that these two – Sly and Arnie – have never got together on screen before (excluding the cameos in The Expendables movies), as they do work rather well together.

It focuses on the two men’s attempts to escape a futuristic prison which has been custom- built to prevent escapes. Guess what… it’s about to be put to its limits. So, baring in mind that the story takes place in a prison, there’s plenty of faceless thugs for our two action heroes to pound, plus a villainous warden and his henchman Vinnie Jones to sort out along the way.

This is Sly’s movie, so he does get more screen time and people to punch than Arnie, so Arnie fans may feel just a little short-changed. However, seeing as the two actors have known each other for many years, there’s a natural rapport between them which shines out. Arnie’s acting (yes, acting!) seems to have suffered since being in politics, seeming a bit stilted in The Last Stand and The Expendables, but he seems to be regaining his old late eighties/early nineties charm.

If you like either or both the aging escape-artists, you should enjoy this film, even if it’s just to watch them on screen (properly) for the first time. There’s your typical amount of action and mayhem as they figure out how to break out. My only gripe was that it was a little longer than I expected, clocking in at nearly two hours. Shave about 10-15 minutes off the runtime and you’d have a much tighter movie.
