Stallone has come up with so many Brilliant characters and scripts throughout our lifetime. Escape Plan is dramatic with intense scenes more than action packed scenes, which is fine; he does an excellent rendition of a Master Hoodini. We are with him, as the leading man, as he makes the escape of the millennium. Schwartzenegger partners with Stallone so well and convinced me that he was a prisoner and the XFactor. The ending I don’t think anyone sees coming and it is cool that we didn’t. I enjoyed the Islamic good guy’s role btw. I give the movie a 5 for its overall smart escape moves and difficult, to say the least, “Plan B” break-out plus figuring out where he was located is a creative challenging aspect to the movie.
