The eighties are back, apparently. Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are back in over-the-top action films, so I suppose they must be.
This isn’t really the sort of film I’d usually go for, but we all need a change now and then. And there’s space for OTT action. Not The Expendables, that’s just the genre masturbating, but Escape Plan caught my attention because it has aspirations. It’s not an action film, it seems to claim, it’s a prison break film! Like that TV show a few years back…what was it? Prison Break!
So what the hell. Let’s give Rocky and the T-800 another bite at the apple, shall we?
