Escape Plan (2013)

pinoy top sites

The film features some of my favorite stars: Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Neill, Faran Tahir and Jim Caviezel plus the very endearing 50 Cent and the beautiful Caitriona Balfe.

MY THOUGHTS ON THE FILM

Designing something unbreakable or impenetrable, like a prison for the worst criminals in the world, is close to impossible, but after being able to do so, why would you want stay there? To make sure that the prisoners won't have a chance to escape? Don't you think that by doing so, you have already made yourself reside in Gehenna?

Willard Hobbes(Caviezel) idolized Ray Breslin(Stallone) and even bought the book he authored: Compromising Correctional Institutional Security.  With that book, Breslin inspired Hobbes to design THE TOMB, also known as BABYLON, his hell on earth(Correctional Institutions or State Prisons are like purgatory)

Being immersed in the story

If you want to know the story before hand, just search for ESCAPE PLAN 2013 wiki and you would be able to read the WHOLE story, but if I were you, go watch the movie from start to finish, not expecting anything.  I assure you that it is better to watch the movie with a clean slate.


The actors are very good.  The music is very moving and the scenes look so real.

Schwarzenegger and Stallone are both past their prime, but they are still so fit.

The movie is male dominated, but the two ladies (Amy Ryan and Caitriona Balfe)  that are highlighted in the film were well chosen, I believe.

Morality aside, this is a spectacular film, but I must say, this is not for the faint of heart.
