ESCAPE PLAN is the first pairing of action legends Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in leading roles, and co-stars Jim Caviezel, Curtis "50 Cent"… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hafstrom tries to pretend his stars are about 40 and, for the most part, it works."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Schwarzenegger misses no opportunity to be hilarious. How many actors can make you chuckle even when they're being waterboarded?"
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Diverting but ultimately disappointing, considering how often the prison genre has produced movies of nail-biting tension or irresistible campiness."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"This is all completely ridiculous and sensationally entertaining."
‑ Robert Levin, Film School Rejects
"'Escape Plan' may finally unite Schwarzenegger and Stallone in co-starring roles, but it hardly seems like this is the story that makes the wait worthwhile."
‑ Drew McWeeny, HitFix
"Escape Plan is the newest vehicle for aging action stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger and, in this case, it's a lemon or possibly an Edsel."
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"As Hollywood vehicles for aging action stars go, it's at least serviceable. Of course it's ridiculous, but what else would you expect?"
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"To paraphrase Roger Murtaugh, they're not too old for this s**t."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"...a disappointing yet sporadically engrossing throwback to the violent actioners of the '80s and '90s."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Stallone and Schwarzenwegger deliver the action, drama and most importantly humor in this escapist entertainment"
‑ Jackie K. Cooper,
"Try not to think too hard about it, and Escape Plan is stupid, stupid fun."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"A mildly amusing, if ultimately pointless prison-break thriller from Mikael Håfström."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"And so, as was inevitable, Stallone and Schwarznegger are together again and starring in their trademark (putatively) action flick"
‑ Andrea Chase, Killer Movie Reviews
"The most surprising thing about this movie, outside of its length, is just how unsurprising it really is, especially regarding its tired climax."
‑ Louis Black, Austin Chronicle
"There are some surprises in this modestly budgeted action film, but not many. This is more about the fun of watching these two experienced action stars work these roles, and this plot, to perfection."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
