4.0 out of 5 stars Stallone and Schwarzenwegger deliver the action, drama and most importantly humor in this escapist entertainment, 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Escape Plan [DVD] (DVD)
Finally, a Stallone / Schwarzenegger film that isn't completely beneath them.On the plus side, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are canny survivors who know a thing or two about commanding a screen. They make Escape Plan a guilty pleasure for much of its running time.Fans of '80s and '90s action films should revel in its awesome nostalgia.Stallone's third-wind career isn't damaged while Schwarzenegger's comeback is certainly helped, playing burly second banana to a cagey ape, the George Kennedy for Cool Hand Sly.Far more rib-stickingly satisfying than either Expendables or The Last Stand.There are some surprises in this modestly budgeted action film. This is more about the fun of watching these two experienced action stars work these roles, and this plot, to perfection. I was shocked but this Sly/Arnold combo package flick is far more entertaining as an action film than you might expect. Thanks to a clever twist, it's actually a lot of fun. A throwback to the violent actioners of the '80s and '90s.
