(de) wrote: A successful exercise of style. Knight manage to raise tension, discomfortand pity in the viewer. The directing, the sound, the lighting and the music are such that we identify with the character, played by Tom Hardy more than convincing, that shows us how a man happy can lose everything in an instant. Very good movie, both simple and original.
(mx) wrote: Starts off great but slowly turns into an unfunny parody of itself. Watch 'Basket Case' instead, the movie that this is clearly ripping off. Stormare steals the show.
(au) wrote: 3 stars only because Paul is in it. The acting in this movie was TERRIBLE!! I could hardly stand to watch the gangsters. The only reason I could convince myself to finish the movie was to watch Paul perform. The story, the message and the ending is not all that bad but the poor acting makes it almost impossible to enjoy even that.

(ca) wrote: I liked the 1965 version a lot and this one is a remake that makes the cut well. Fine cinematography and a high standard of acting make this very thought provoking. Music is of the primitive style which makes for a complimentary style adding some excitement. Some twists and turns to keep your mind on its toes which was fun. Nibbles: Fig Rolls.

As you watch the movie, you become aware of just how this effected him and why he is still doing it. Chilling. That being said, this movie is similar to many others on the same topic. Vigilante justice by teachers fed up with the crap they have to put up with to reach the few students who want to learn... nothing new here. You don't sympathize with the characters, even the ones you are "supposed" to in the story because the movie doesn't give you enough to make you care. It is padded with scenes to show you the plight of the violent students and what makes them that way. Again, this is supposed to invoke sympathy for their situation. I didn't feel it. Violence is a choice someone makes, not a means to right the wrongs of society. Average movie with some good performances (Jackson and Arroyove - the young lady who plays Rita - come immediately to mind). You wrote this on 5/28/09.

(it) wrote: Here's a movie with a great title, a great movie poster, a great trailer and a great pairing of legendary action stars. The two "Escape Plan" (R, 1:56) co-stars have made (as of 2013) a combined total of over 100 films. This movie is perfectly named because it tells you what the story is about without revealing whether the setup results in a successful conclusion for its protagonists. You may think that you know how this movie will end, but nothing is guaranteed in this intricate and twisty action thriller.Sylvester Stallone stars as Ray Breslin, a man who makes his living breaking out of maximum security prisons to show prison officials the flaws in their designs, procedures, personnel or some combination thereof. Breslin is the best at what he does. He wrote the book on prison security - literally. As the film opens, Breslin is executing his latest escape plan by making a series of very curious preparations. When he's out and his boss (Vincent D'Onofrio, playing nicely against type) tells the prison's warden why Breslin was really there and allows Breslin to explain how he escaped, the payoff is clever and impressive. All this leads to his most challenging (and lucrative) assignment yet - testing the security of a new type of prison, one designed for individuals who various governments around the world want... disappeared. Breslin's ego and greed lead him to take the job, but he soon finds out that he's got more than he bargained for and he may not be there for the reasons that he was told when he was hired.The warden is played by Jim Caviezel who makes a deliciously dry villain. (It's also a fun bit of casting, considering that his first starring role was in 2002's underrated "The Count of Monte Cristo", in which he plays a man unjustly sent to a remote prison by people who want HIM disappeared.) Breslin is soon befriended by Arnold Schwarzenegger's character, Emil Rottmayer, an inmate who has some information that the warden seems determined to get out of him (ironically, similar to the situation we see with a prisoner who befriends Jim Caviezel's innocent man in "Monte Cristo".) It's not long before Rottmayer is using his considerable strength and knowledge of the prison to help Breslin engineer his escape, in exchange for Breslin's promise to take him along. Meanwhile, Amy Ryan, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Sam Neill and Vinnie Jones lend their considerable talents in important supporting roles.This is a thinking person's action thriller... for the most part. The prison that Breslin finds himself stuck in is uniquely designed and looks to be impossible to escape, and the reveal of its location is pretty wild. Breslin is brilliant and resourceful (call him the MacGyver of prison breaks), while Rottmayer is an indispensable ally with an intriguing level of mystery to him. Breslin's plans and tricks are highly original and fun to watch play out. This is the best film and some of the best acting that I've seen out of both Stallone and Schwarzenegger is many years. Unfortunately, towards the end, the movie falls back on well-worn action film tropes that are very familiar to long-time fans of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, and the story's resolution feels a bit cheesy and similarly reminiscent of the two stars' heyday. In addition, some of the questions the film raises about the main character's backgrounds aren't as clearly answered as they should have been. As great as most of this film was, as a whole, "Escape Plan" is only able to make off with a "B+" from me.

Love the cast too - Mads Mikkelsen, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Eric Cantona are all excellent entertainment, and the stunning Eva Green is sexier than ever (even with her tongue cut out and scars across her mouth)! Class Western.

But this movie portrayed a sense of caring for the infirm that we seldom see. Those who can do it truly are "saints." But it is not an easy or even particularly enjoyable movie to watch.
