Separately, Arnold and Sly made some solid but not great action movies with The Last Stand and Bullet to the Head earlier this year but hopefully together they can deliver with Escape Plan (formerly The Tomb). The movie finds Stallone as an escape expert, who goes into prisons and breaks out to show them the weaknesses in their system. He accepts a job to be placed into a new, extremely high security prison but he’s setup and is actually trapped in the prison. He gets some help from a fellow inmate, played by Arnold, and the two plan an escape. Jim Caviezel is the evil warden and Amy Ryan and 50 Cent are Stallone’s team on the outside. Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio and Sam Neill are also in the movie. The prison looks insane with suspended glass cells, guards in 300 style Immortal masks and high tech security devices. It reminds me a bit of the crazy oil rig prison from Face/Off. The movie is out in October and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
