One of the world's foremost authorities on structural security agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra-secret, high-tech facility called "The Tomb.” Deceived and wrongly imprisoned, Ray Breslin (Stallone) must recruit fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to help devise a daring, nearly impossible plan to escape from the most protected and fortified prison ever built. ESCAPE PLAN is the first pairing of action legends Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in leading roles.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
All in all, "Escape Plan" does what it sets out to do.Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, 10.17.2013
Schwarzenegger seems to be the only one here who correctly takes the film as a lark.Scott Bowles, USA Today, 10.17.2013
"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.Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 10.17.2013
While it's fun to remember '80s popcorn-movie thrills, fully recapturing those thrills might be impossible.Tom Russo, Boston Globe, 10.17.2013
