Escape Plan - Oct 20, 2013
There are two people in the world, people who like action movies and everyone else is just wrong. Give me a movie with two or more of the guys from “Expendables” and I’m sold on it already. Bring in Jim Caviezel from “Persons of Interest” and Sam Neill from “Jurassic Park” and I’m there opening weekend.
Ray Breslin is a man who breaks out of maximum security prisons to show their flaws. He gets an offer from the government to break out of a prison they have built for the worst of the worst in the world. They want to make sure that nobody gets out of this prison so they hire Breslin. They don’t tell him where the prison is or anything about it. He gets taken to this facility and realizes that this might be the prison he can’t break out. With the help of another inmate name Rottmayer, they try to create an escape plan.
Unlike “Expendables”, you won’t get bogged down with one liners or gratuitous blood and guts. They give you enough storyline to care about the main characters then everyone else just falls into the background. Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Caviezel and Vinnie Jones are your main players. They add in plot twists to keep you interested throughout the movie. Overall the movie was what I thought it would be a little action and a little story. If you are jonesin’ for an action flick, go check this out! Below is my friend Tim English review of the movie
