3.0 out of 5 stars Old School, 11 July 2014
This review is from: Escape Plan [DVD] (DVD)
Stallone and Schwarzenegger seem determined to bring old school 80's style action flicks back to the masses. Escape Plan is another fun but by the numbers entry in this recent series (see also - The Expendables, Bullet to the Head, the Last Stand etc).

Sly plays Ray Breslin, an expert at breaking out of prisons - it's his profession and he's quite literally written the book on it. His latest assignment goes slightly awry as he ends up in a futuristic high tech prison that even he's gonna struggle to bust out of. Inside he meets Arnies character, a fellow inmate and they form a bond of sorts as they attempt to hatch an Escape Plan (wink).

Plot wise that's pretty much all you need to know going in - it's a cool set up and the stylish prison is a good setting to see our two old boys lay some serious smack down on guards and inmates alike. There's the odd twist in the tale as things move along, plenty of action and the stars coast along on their natural charm.

You probably know exactly what you're getting into here and if you've enjoyed the recent renaissance of these guys then this will surely float your boat. Like I said, it's a bit of fun and you get the added rare bonus of hearing Arnie speaking in his native tongue.
