This is a movie with a twist and turn with a pleasant surprise to all that watch it. The action and concepts are fantastic with the fast pace of ideas that create this a marvellous movie that it is worth adding to the collection. The cast played it to a tee making you feel uncomfortable in the jail detention with them, while plotting the ideas of escaping and looking for the bright outdoors once they do escape. The prisoners are waiting to see it happen, very slim chance they will succeed and what is waiting for them after they do escape is another thing, Well it's there only hope so they must try anyway. Very different must see and saying to much will only spoil it. So no more clues now its time to go and collect your munchies for a fabulous night of entertainment that will rock you, now put your feet up and relax, well try to anyway, Plenty of action and suspense so I rated this an A grade plus for an unusual show to keep the entertainment flowing and not boring. Enjoy!

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...

Sylvester Stallone plays a security expert who breaks out of prisons for a living testing their security systems and gets approached to break out of a high tech top secret security prison that holds the worst criminals in America to test its security. While there he soon realizes that it's a set up and has to break out of the prison for real teaming up with another wrongly convicted prisoner played by Arnold Schwarzennegger. It's a fammiliar story and while both Stallone and Schwarzenneggar have done better much of the fun of this action film is seeing the 2 of them work together and they prove to be a good double act which was previously hinted at in the Expendables films. Jim Caviezel from tv series Person Of Interest, Vinnie Jones and Vincent D'Onoforio from tv series Law and Order Criminal Intent provide good support and while fun the film isn't anything you haven't seen before.

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.
