The Austrian Oak and the Italian Stallion. Two mighty mountains of musclebound man-meat with mouths full of marbles, meeting for one final job... Oh, but it should have been better than this. The first feature-length buddy-up between Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger could have been a cause for global celebration, a last hurrah for two ageing icons sliding gracelessly into their late sixties. Instead, it’s a predictable, shoddy-looking beat-’em-up.

Sly plays Ray Breslin, a consultant hired to break out of US prisons to test their security systems. But when a job turns sour, Ray is forced to turn to grizzled fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer – guess who? – for assistance. Precisely why director Mikael Håfström was picked for this gig remains a mystery: his CV is packed with stodgy horror flicks, and he has trouble marshalling a convincing action sequence. ‘Escape Plan’ would have made a perfect vehicle for, say, a Chuck Norris or even a Jean-Claude Van Damme. But these two redoubtable, enormously watchable old-school heroes deserve better.

No usually into these kinds of films but I really enjoyed it. Action packed!

It was an EXCELLENT film. If you enjoy watching Stallone & Schwarzenegger films, this will NOT disappoint. In that respect, of giving the paying fans what they want, it was - extremely well done.

Every bit as average as the review states. If it didn't have the two stars in it would head straight to DVD. Really not worth the effort. Wait until it is available on demand.
