Ideal for anyone who feels action thrillers have been too low-concept this millennium, Escape Plan unites genre icons Stallone and Schwarzenegger for a more substantial and satisfying team-up than their Expendables outings.
While not quite as slick as Arnie’s The Last Stand, this plays well to a nostalgic crowd longing for ridiculous pitches (professional prison-breaker banged upin off-the-grid high-security facility).
Director Mikael Håfström (The Rite) maximises the buddy thrills, while the supporting cast (Sam Neill, Jim Caviezel, Vinnie Jones), cut-price production design and shonky greenscreen only add to the pre-2000 feel.
