Number of Times Seen – 1 (15 Jan 2014)
Brief Synopsis – When a professional security technician gets double-cross and gets stuck in prison he must team up with another convict in order to try and escape the most secure prison ever built.
My Take on it – I had expected that after more than 30 years as competing action movie stars Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger would be able to find a fun and interesting vehicle in order to work together.
Alas, it is not so….
This movie is a cross between the TV show Prison Break and the movie Sneakers (1992) (one of my favorite thrillers), but doesn’t work as well as either of them.
There are a few interesting plot ideas here, but overall it is pretty much a complete waste of time. There is no reason to care about any of the characters and I was just hoping that it would end sooner than it did.
I truly hope that the next time Arnie and Sly decide to team up, I suggest they read the script first to see whether it is a worthy movie, cause this one surely isn’t.
Bottom Line – Expected something much better when Sly and Arnie teamed up, but it was not meant to be. Not even an above average action movie.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
