A Prison Break Masterclass with a Twist
The Irony of the Escape Artist
Imagine being an escape artist so good that you can break free from any prison—except the one you're thrown into without any heads-up. That's exactly what happens to Ray Breslin (played by Sylvester Stallone), a structural-security authority who finds himself incarcerated in a high-tech facility called "The Tomb." It's the escape artist's worst nightmare: a prison designed to be inescapable. The film turns the prison-break genre into a brain-twisting Rubik's Cube, and Breslin teams up with fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to do the twisting. It's a bit like asking Houdini to escape from a lock he's never seen before.
Not Just Muscles, but Brainpower
"Escape Plan" cleverly circumvents expectations by not relying solely on the beefcake bravado of its two leading action stars. The film weaves in elements of mystery and suspense, asking its characters—and its audience—to think their way out of the puzzle. If you enjoy feeling like the detective and the fugitive simultaneously, then this is your playground.

With an amalgam of muscle and mind, the movie gives us a prison escape plot we didn't know we needed but can't help enjoy. After all, who can resist a good escape story? Especially when breaking free involves not just brawn, but also a lot of brains. So sit back, and let yourself get caught up in "Escape Plan"—breaking free has never been this entertaining.
