    So chalk Escape Plan up as a pretty good action movie given an extra edge by the intelligent use of its two main actors.

  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Though this movie can’t match the formal qualities that made the pair’s most iconic films work, it goes a long way toward recapturing their sense of cheesy fun.

  • Chris Packham

    With its fun script and cheap visuals, Escape Plan evokes the halfwit cheesiness of 1980s-era Cannon films, but it also recalls the deft pacing and legibility of their action sequences.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    Here are two action stars having fun; watching them work together as a team is a lot more entertaining than you might have expected. Try not to think too hard about it, and Escape Plan is stupid, stupid fun.

  • Laremy Legel

    A Stallone / Schwarzenegger film that isn't completely beneath them. Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Escape Plan is so dumb it's adorable, as any movie pitting Sylvester Stallone's grunt against Arnold Schwarzenegger's accent should be.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Geoff Pevere

    A display of old-school muscle-buddy connivance that’s as flatly preposterous as it is shamelessly entertaining.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The heist-inspired elements aren't well thought through and it becomes a question of which is harder to swallow: the mechanics of the story or the idea that a couple of sixtysomethings can kick this much ass.

    Stupid but fun.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Any prison-break yarn that includes Arnold Schwarzenegger delivering the line “You hit like a vegetarian” is OK by me.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    The script never gives them the kind of memorable exchange that makes fans howl with delight. But all in all, Escape Plan does what it sets out to do.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Escape Plan is mostly a gray, thudding metal machine of throwback exploitation, but the goateed, goofy Ah-nold is so happy to be in the thick of an old-school bruiser again that he makes it feel like the dumb-fun flashback party it is.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    No new ground is broken, and viewers will, not unpleasantly, get everything they expect. It’s apparently morning in America again.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    As the unpredictable, mischievous inmate with the unlikely name of Emil Rottmayer, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s sidekick role in Escape Plan may make audiences weep for the films we missed out on while he made speeches in Sacramento.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Stallone and Schwarzenegger have all the gravity here, and keep pulling Escape Plan in the direction of an old-fashioned tough-guy action film, one filled with nods to their onscreen pasts and offscreen exploits.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Mercifully free of tongue-in-cheek meta-humor, Escape Plan is a likably lunkheaded meat-and-potatoes brawler that never pretends to be more sophisticated than it is.

    Variety Full Review
  • Andrew Lowry

    A highly enjoyable slice of in-one-eye, out-the-other nonsense. It may coast on the charisma of its leads at times, and it’s hardly deep, but there’s a Friday night to be had.

  • Chris Nashawaty

    Schwarzenegger, for one, seems to be having a hoot.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The plot itself is predictably divorced from reality, containing more holes — and smelling staler — than month-old Swiss cheese. All of which means that Stallone and Schwarzenegger end up having to do all the heavy lifting.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Bruce Ingram

    Sure, it’s fun to see the Governator and the Italian Stallion he-manning it up together feature-length for the first time — the screen is barely big enough to contain the two of them — but the prison-break movie Escape Plan is unworthy of the momentous occasion.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Scott Bowles

    Action fans -- particularly devotees of brainless '80s shoot-em-ups -- may find enough to like here, particularly the preposterous mayhem of the third act.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    In one amusing bit of dialogue, Stallone and Schwarze-negger kid each other about being smarter than they look. For a little while at least, we thought we might be able to say the same about Escape Plan.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The tempered violence, the nature of the villains, the easy bonhomie of our leads and a cast peppered with great supporting players make Escape Plan go down easier than the other “Rambo/Last Man Standing/Expendables” pictures that brought these two aged action stars back from the dead.

  • Mike Scott

    It won't stick to your ribs in the way, say, a shank will -- but it probably won't leave you looking for a way to escape the theater, either.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It’s not fair to either of these actors to want to see Rocky and the Terminator over and over again. But it is fair to want to see them in something better than this.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    With a tighter plot and slightly more knowing craftsmanship, this might have worked, but Swedish director Mikael Hafström (1408, The Rite) isn’t really the man to poke fun with any sophistication at his stars’ well-established personas.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Escape Pla’ 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.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    For a long stretch of the second act the film feels like doing a long stretch, but Schwarzenegger’s having a ball as Stallone goes through the motions.

    Empire Full Review
  • Steven Boone

    Yeah, it's a mishmash of good, strange ideas and generic nonsense, barely held together by Sly and Arnie. Full Review
  • Gabe Toro

    Escape Plan deserves some credit for gradually rising from abysmal to almost-mediocre, though it’s needlessly complicated in every step of the way.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Louis Black

    The film is eventful and full of suspense, but also obvious and completely contrived.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    They just don't make 'em like this anymore, and it's a good thing, too.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    A dim anti-privatization parable that preaches a familiar strain of cynical, unchallenged self-righteousness in the face of widespread abuse of civil liberties.
