ESCAPE PLAN - Disappointing thriller offering quite less than what was promised. [TTP (To The Point) Review by Bobby Sing]

22 Oct, 2013 | Movie Reviews / 2013 Releases

A prison break or heist plot is always an exciting one full of thrilling, nail-biting and entertaining moments right till the end. So if there is supposed to be a prison break film featuring two of the most famous world heroes Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger together on the screen forming a team. Then there are bound to be loads of expectations and millions of die-hard fans eager enough to watch this rare ensemble at the earliest. The theatrical trailer of ESCAPE PLAN also had many promising scenes & dialogues which further added to the excitement factor a lot and the film did have some great energetic vibes before the release.
But unfortunately, the end product fails to meet the expectations raised and all we get to see is a pleasant glimpse of Sylvester and Arnold standing together in a single frame doing nothing significant or great. The pace is pretty slow for an action thriller having such a dream cast and even the fight sequences are not impressive enough as per the standards of the two veterans. Thinking about its basic storyline, ESCPAE PLAN had some great potential, but the writers couldn’t exploit it to the best coming up with an easily predictable and mediocre script followed by an average direction by Mikael Hafstrom.
In short, in a film revolving around world’s greatest prison breaker featuring Stallone and Schwarzenegger together, you don’t get to see either any exciting, edge of the seat prison break or any powerful, breathtaking fight sequence presenting them as a team. The film begins promisingly introducing the unique skills of Stallone but then has nothing great to offer in the entire middle hour till the finale (wasting a deadly duo). And that is the reason why even a fast paced climax is not able to make any kind of solid impact on the viewer as it ends. So apart from the two macho heroes standing together on the screen, you don’t have much to enjoy or cheer in the film and that should easily give you a clue to take your individual decision of watching it in the theaters or not.

Rating : 2 / 5
