I loved this movie. Great fun.

Wife not so much, but nothing wrong with that. She didn't grow up with Arnold and Sly at the movies so she just didn't appreciate it.

I had a few minor gripes however overall 4/5.

I don't think that would ever happen, Arnold is an action star and fans seeing him in a drama wouldn't go down well at all. He could pull off comedy because back 20 years ago he made fun of his action star image and was known for hardcore action films and seeing him in a comedy was funny. I think the closest we may ever see him in a drama is "Maggie" if it sticks to the original script.

Schwarzenegger should win a best actor Oscar for this.

What a year 2013 has been. I think good cinema is finally making a comeback. We have Escape Plan, Oblivion, Riddick, Gravity, and Rush. I'm actually enjoying myself at the movies again.

We also have Prometheus 2, the new Star Wars movies, and Avatars to look forward to.

RIP 1997-2012. The most hideous, boring, lame, lacking in any and all creativity, garbage, pathetic cinematic period. I crap on you.
Can someone lend me one of those "Not Sure If Serious" pics?

Really? Could they not think of a better line? I thought the film had the potential to be better than what we got, every scene Arnold was in he stole the show. Also the CGI was really good. Hopefully we get another film with Arnie and Sly sharing the screen for most of it's runtime again.

4/5
I'm Shocked you LOVED an Arnold movie


Seriously though, I might try to see this film this week - if not, will have no problem waiting for the blu-ray. Have seen some video reviews, read some online ones, & have a feeling it's one of those somewhat like movies. But, who knows, maybe it'll be more enjoyable (for ME) than what I've seen or read, for others.

I am seeing this in about an hour!

Edit: Back, enjoyed it. Arnie was more supporting character to sly which was surprising..Best and favourite part was when
[Show spoiler]Sly hacks the cameras so they all show the same image and all the guys pose and make funny faces haha

It could have been better but what we got was a good action thriller. In my opinion I enjoyed it a lot more than The Last Stand and even more than Bullet to the head. I was surprised at how much screen time Arnie had.

2/4 (3/5 here)

Was going for 1.5/4 till
[Show spoiler]the twist at the end.


Mostly the plot was not believable.

[Show spoiler]The reason why Stallone’s business partner sold him out was not clear. Why not murder him? If he was offered a job why not just take it & leave.

The reason why Arnold’s Daughter lied to Stallone & his partner & staff as to the true nature of his assignment (To rescue her father with her father’s help). Why not just be upfront with him to maximize probability of success?

Also, breaking 2 people out of a max security prison is harder than a solo escape.

A bit too cheesy with the lingering shot of Arnold’s eyes as he unmounts large machine gun & begins to kill all the bad guys.


Some good humor:

Saw this tonight, very good movie, gets 3 to 3 and 1/2 stars (4 is excellent, 5 is classic status) I appreciated the fact it was something different, I dug the story, and Stallone/Arnold still have what it takes...Check it out if your a fan of either of these guys...

Just got back. I've been wanting to watch this but was worried that it wouldn't be that good. I was wrong, I really enjoyed it. Stallone and Schwarzenegger were great together. I've been hearing the Arnold is the best part, but I thought Sly was just as good. My wife enjoyed it too.

3.5/5.

Great film, really enjoyed it, was so excited to see Arnie and Sly on the screen together. Good to see it wasn't just your typical action film, enjoyed the thriller aspects of it, the whole prison escape theme was great, the climax was really fun with a good twist. Let's hope to see more films with these two!

I liked it a lot. It was more fun than Machete Kills, which I saw right before this. 4 stars!
