If everything we watched at the cinema was intelligent let’s be honest our brains would be frazzled, so it’s nice to give the brain a rest and dumb things down with some silly fun romp. Who better to provide the nonsensical action than none other than Sly and Arnie who head behind bars in first trailer for Escape Plan aka The Tomb.
Escape Plan stars Stallone as security expert Ray Breslin who makes an living designing inescapable prisons but he is framed and finds himself behind bars in one of those high tech prisons. Determined to find out who framed him as well as save his life he finds himself an unlikely ally than ageing inmate Swan (Schwarzenegger) who wants to taste the freedom of the outside once more.
Whilst guys the age of Sly & Arnie back home may spend time enjoying the luxuries of life, a flutter on the horses, quick pint at the local these old crooners maybe grey bones may ache but cinematically they still feel 25 not 65. Escape Plan reeks of old school awesomeness, don’t expect substance here, it’s fun all the way but how long can the pair survive in this intense and at time overcrowded genre? Hey Kids enjoy it while you can, learn from two of the best, pioneers of over the top action thrillers, just remember to pick up your brain at concessions on the way out.
Only 3 months to go until Escape Plan arrives in UK, 27th September, you might recognize this lot too Jim Caviezel, Curtis Jackson (aka 50 Cents), Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Amy Ryan.
