Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) is a master escape artist. He is employed by the Federal Bureau to make sure that all the Maximum Security prisons remain escape-proof. He is so good that he has written the textbook on Prison security. So he is planted into every state penitentiary and he has to find a way to get out. He does it like clockwork, until a mysterious private company asks him to find out a way to escape from a secret prison. The problem, no one in the outside knows where it is located and he has no contacts inside. Somehow, he finds an able and willing foil in Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger!) Will he be able to break out this time or has he finally met his match?
Arnold and Stallone. Do you need any more reason to watch this film? And they give you exactly what you expect from them - dumb fun! Yes, the film has a harebrained plot but is breezy and watchable. Arnie has some cool one-liners and Sly still packs a mean punch. Together, they have enough charisma to help you through!
The popcorn worthiness:
Well, these are the kind of movies for which popcorn was invented! Yep, just roll up your sleeves, get a big bucket and gobble it up. Mikael Hafstrom of 1408 fame, thinks up a flimsy plot, writes up some decent dialogues and creates a good enough vehicle for the 2 legends to have some fun. To over analyse this film would be to insult your own intelligence.
Breslin has a 3 step routine to get out of a prison - 1) Know the layout 2) Understand the routine of the guards 3) Get help from inside or outside! If you like the 2 action veterans, you can follow these 3 simple steps - simply Hit ESC to logic, get CTRL of some popcorn and SHIFT to your nearest theater today!
A hopeless FILMantic, a sit-down comic, a cereal killer, chicken lover, who Copys for a living, really!
