No one breaks out alone.

Ray Breslin is a structural analyst, the best in the business when it comes to designing high security prisons. Breslin is approached by a woman from the CIA and offered a multi-million dollar deal to test a top secret prison and see if it is inescapable.

However, things go unexpectedly when it becomes obvious that he has been betrayed and there is no intention of him ever being let out again. Breslin finds himself trapped in an allegedly inescapable prison without help, until he befriends Emil Rottmayer, another inmate. Together they hatch a plan to regain their freedom.

The prison is an unconventional one and there is more to it than meets the eye. Even Breslin will be hard-pressed to escape from here.

Schwarzenegger misses no opportunity to be hilarious. How many actors can make you chuckle even when they're being waterboarded? (New York Post)

While predictable and silly, “Escape Plan” is by far the most enjoyable Stallone film in years – it's pure, dopey escapism. (New York Daily News)
