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...

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.

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.

Ray Breslin' (Sylvester Stallone) is a partner in a business that studies prison
security, in recent years he has put his experience to the test by exposing the
frailties of the prisons he is assigned to by escaping.
He has successfully escaped from fourteen hi-security prisons in recent years,
the prisons benefit from his findings.
He accepts just one more incarceration, however he finds himself imprisoned
after being framed, he has no idea where he is.
The prison is a hi-tech and well fortified unit governed by a brutal regime, the
prison, a secret establishment is known as 'The Tomb'
Breaking out of this one isn't as straightforward as prisons he's put to the test
in the recent past.
To return to normal life he's going to need help, during a scuffle a guardian angel
steps up, known as 'Emil Rottmayer' (Arnold Schwarzenegger')
'Ray' recruits 'Emil' to help him devise a plan of escape, however the task appears
almost impossible an attempt could prove fatal.
There are things in store that even escape expert 'Ray' could not of envisaged.
*The film also stars 'Jim Caviezel' (Passion of the Christ) as ruthless prison governor
'Hobbes' and 'Vinny Jones' (former Wimbledon and Wales football star) as 'Drake'
a brutal prison guard.
This is a cleverly crafted exciting and intense drama with scenes of brutality and
torture along with fight scenes and action sequences.
This is a superb role for 'Sylvester Stallone' with great support from fellow action-film
hero 'Arnold Schwarzenegger'
A MUST SEE FOR 'SLY' and 'ARNIE' fans.
Special Features:
* Audio commentary with director 'Mikael Ha'fstrom' and writer 'Miles Chapman'
* Executing the plan.
* Clash of the Titans.
* Deleted Scenes.

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!
