Escape Plan 
A lethargic action film that goes haywire
1/4 stars

The route to escape failure is by either tightening your budget or use top actors in your film to attract the audience and make money. Well, director Mikael Hafstrom, has done the same. But the surprise is that he has done both here. Despite having such talents like Stallone and Schwarzenegger, he chose to tighten the budget. It is evident in every frame whether it might be the explosions, gun fights or the easy wrestling kind of duos, everything looks tight. If such a cheap act of gimmickry is employed for big scale action stars, all left is only their tiresome and rusticated voice. Stallone is old and evident here. Schwarzenegger looked dumb throughout with his lame excuses of one liners and little forced barrel gun fight. What about the antagonist of this film? Oh Jesus. Save me from trashing him down. He just orders and orders and finally he gets the prize we expected. A bad choice offered to Jim Caviezel. He can do better than that. Who cares what Stallone plans? We need only hard hitting action for such stars. Where was the action I expected in this film? It goes down the wire and by the time real action kicks in, I am already down with sedation. There is no motive in plotting and the whole lot premise becomes a clichéd version of all breakout films. If this would have been a TV episode of nearly ten episodes, then I might soak some patience to understand the plan, but for a film of two hours, I couldn’t resist more. Nearly I am bored until the break starts. All the drama, lame dialogs and clichéd action does not make me smile, but rather I am ready to trash this film as a worst of Stallone. Even Bullet to the Head was better. Come on Stallone, choose wiser films. I am excusing you this time. Ardent fans out there! Hell bad! Escape Plan is a tiresome and lethargic action film, that needs more patience. Not my type. The combo I’ve waited for goes hell wrong. Plan no good, escape guaranteed. Rent for your satiation.
