When I was a teenager I used to watch Stallone's and Schwarzenegger's movies:... who could say no to series like Rocky, Rambo or Terminator? In that period I kind of wanted an action movie whith more " big" players. The Expendables movies satisfied in some degree that wish, what's left of it after 2 decades of waiting... but the surprises keep coming: Escape Plan (formerly known as Exit Plan and The Tomb) is an upcoming action thriller film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jim Caviezel and Vinnie Jones.
I've never heard about this movie until tonight, but it's something I'll watch. I am not expecting an Oscar nominated movie, but I'll try not to waste too much time on it.
Ray Breslin is the world's foremost authority on structural security. After analyzing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test. He's framed, wrongly convicted of a crime and incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars. He is aided in his escape by his cellmate Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger).
During his time in prison, Breslin has analyzed every high security prison and gained significant survival skills, but faces his biggest challenge in trying to break out of an ultimate high-tech prison that he himself designed to be escape-proof.
