Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) has escaped from fourteen high security prisons. But he's not a criminal--he runs a company that tests the security of prisons. He's hired by a woman from the CIA to break out of a secret, hidden prison that houses the world's worst criminals and things immediately go wrong. First, they remove the locater chip he has in his arm. Then, he's targeted by the evil warden (Jim Caviezel), who knows who Ray really is. In fact, he constructed this modern prison after reading Breslin's book. Ray can't escape on his own so he has to escape by getting help from a prisoner, Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger). At one point Ray believes he breaks out of the prison only to realize it's much more difficult than he imagined.
I thought this was a great premise for an escape from prison movie--and the banter between the two actions stars is entertaining enough, though I kept on thinking how old these stars are getting, which was rather distracting. I liked this movie better than A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD.
