Actors team up in Escape Plan

The movie Escape Plan is a compelling movie about Ray Breslin, played by Sylvester Stallone, a man who can break out of any prison designed by man. Ray and his partner Lester run Breslin and Clark Consultants as the world’s foremost experts for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Their job is to test the efficiency and the ‘escapability’ of America’s secure prisons. Ray has broken out of 14 of these high security prisons and is now looking to retire but Lester convinces him to do one more job.

They are approached by the C.I.A with a unique job proposal that comes with a $5 million payday. The job is for Ray to successfully escape a newly developed prison whose location, for the purpose of secrecy, is completely off the grid.

When Ray and his team go to the pickup point a tracking device is placed in Ray’s shoulder so they could keep track of him. But Ray is grabbed, drugged, and the tracking device is removed. He is then transported to the ultra-high tech prison called ‘The Tomb’.

Soon after his arrival, Ray learns that the Warden Hobbs does not care about the wellbeing of its inmates. Hobbs tells Ray he is never getting out, even after Ray gives the warden his safety code word. Ray then realizes that he has been deceived and has even more reasons to get out of the prison. The Warden Hobbs and his guards don’t hesitate to use extreme brutality towards the prisoners to get them to follow their commands to keep them completely obedient.

After spending the first few days of living in a suspended glass box observing the routines of the guards and not trusting anyone, Ray soon realizes the dark secrets of the prison and calls upon the aid of fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Escape Plan is a movie that is full of compelling drama and is a non-stop roller coaster of an action packed thrill ride starring two of Hollywood’s biggest action heros, Stallone (Rocky, Grudge Match) and Schwarzenegger (Terminator, Last Stand).

It also stars Curtis ‘50 Cent’ Jackson and Amy Ryan. This movie has a lot of twists and turns that will not disappoint.
