Escape Plan is directed by �Mickael Hafstorm� and he has bought the two super stars �Arnold Stallone and Sylvester Schwarzenegger� together in this film. If they two have been together in the late 80�s or early 90�s then they definitely would have wrecked the box office records no matter what role they were in, they would performed the best. Playing a lead role in the Escape Plan, the actors have shaped a dream into reality with the promising fact that they two have alone made it epic and impressive.
In the movie, Sylvester plays a character whose job is to flee from the prisons to conclude if there are any escape proofs left behind or not? He even became successful in doing this for a lot many times. But one day when he attempts to flee away from a secret prison which is not known to many, he finds himself trapped in that prison. After a while he figures out that the prison he has been sent to, is designed by someone just to trap him in it. The one who has designed the prison has very well seen Sylvester�s way of working and breaking the prisons, so he designed it in a way no one can break it and flee from there. The man was even pain to keep Sylvester from escaping ever from that prison.
The plot is designed with not many instructions or difficulties, so people watching the movie can easily predict the end of the movie. Sylvester finds a prison mate named Arnold who starts liking him right off the wink. They both play characters totally apart from each other, Sylvester whose aim is to escape from the prison plays a role of a typical outsider with hardly or no emotions in him while Arnold tries to act like an average being just like all of us. A character named as Joe who is always seen laughing, don�t fit much together in the film.
Sylvester might have agreed to play a lead character in this movie because Arnold was his subordinate or a co-actor. In the movie, Sylvester tries to take control while Arnold feels he is just phoning in it and making occasional appearances.
The movie doesn�t have much action in it in spite of having these two super stars, Sylvester and Arnold. The name, Escape plan defines a little of what is there in the movie. Where they are and how will they get out and make an escape plan is what is there in the movie with some very interesting scenes with amazing dialogue delivery and great visuals an effect. The ending is a little predictable but the plots will make you think twice.
On the whole, the movie is not that wow, but the lead actors have made it worth a watch. If the director would have chosen other lead actors, then the movie may have been an easily forgettable flick. And yes, how can we forget to mention the most useless role in the movie which is played by �Sam Neil�. It was completely a pointless one.
