  • [New – 1/30/14] | Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]
  • Marina Antunes @ Quiet Earth
  • José Arce @ [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: El bombardeo de producciones que recuperan a los titanes de la testosterona de décadas pasadas prosigue con un castañazo con poco que destacar más allá del cariño que le podamos tener a los dos mamotretos protagonistas.
  • Edwin Arnaudin @ Ashvegas
    • Excerpt: The film’s highlight is Schwarzenegger’s sketch of a butt with an arrow pointed you-know-where. For audiences who choose to see this mess, the arrow is unfortunately turned in the opposite direction and aimed right at them.
  • Patrick Bromley @ F This Movie!
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Having grown up with the action movies of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, “Escape Plan” was a real treat. It was nice to see the guys back in action, and it reminds me of what popcorn movies were made of.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: This paean to 80’s action movies…may not always make the most of sense but it’s pairing of Stallone with a joyful, even twinkly Arnold Schwarzenegger is a real kick for those who remember those films and their stars fondly.
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: …an unashamedly exciting and surprisingly smart thriller.
  • Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: The film has a clever premise and, until a predictably generic climax, follows through on it with a neat if faulty logic.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Creaking and chugging with testosterone-laden, tough-guy violence, they’re lumbering lunkheads.
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ [Ukrainian]
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
    • Excerpt: If this were twenty years ago, Escape Plan would be pretty awesome. Oh wait, no it wouldn’t.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Nothing here is as clever as it is desperately trying to be, but Stallone and Schwarzenegger are game to give us a good time.
  • Glenn Lovell @
    • Excerpt: Stallone continues on the comeback trail … a brawny action thriller with lively supporting turns by Schwarzenegger and Caviezel.
  • Jason Pirodsky @
    • Excerpt: The star pairing does pack a punch: Escape Plan might not have much else to recommend it, there’s an undeniable appeal to seeing Sly and Arnold together onscreen.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Apart from the curious political subtext, it’s mostly a standard-issue innocent-man-breaking-out-of-jail movie, enlivened primarily by Schwarzenegger’s sense of abandon.
  • Phil Villarreal @
    • Excerpt: A relic of the 80s, an action flick era well into its fourth decade.
