Trivia

The passage that Rottmayer quotes in German is the Parable of the Madman from "The Gay Science" by Friedrich Nietzsche, making this film one of less than a handful of films in which Arnold Schwarzenegger is heard speaking in his native language. See more »

Goofs

When Rottmayer first meets Breslin, Breslin introduces himself as his cover name, Anthony Portos. Rottmayer says, "The fourth Musketeer." Porthos (different spelling) was actually one of the 3 Musketeers in Alexandre Dumas' famous novel. D'Artagnan was the 4th musketeer. See more »

About time the two giants of cinema come together!!
14 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Let me start by saying that the fact alone Schwarzenegger and Stallone are in their 60's doing a film like this is the ultimate reason to watch this. I can never understand why people claim they are too old. If anything they put people half their age to shame with their physical abilities and they should inspire people to want to stay energetic well into their senior years. This movie is absolute Gold! We finally have the two biggest movie stars of all time headlining a movie together and believe me you get what you pay for! The action and visuals were what I expected, very clear and stunning. The prison was almost a character itself in making the audience feel apart of the setting. My hat goes off to the director who was able to balance the off-screen chemistry between Stallone and Schwarzenegger and fuse it into the story. No joke these two guys were made to star in a movie together. The nostalgia is off the roof!! Every movie has its flaws and no doubt this one did but in saying that, I was able to automatically ignore them here because of the story, it was well paced. We see Stallone's character introduced as a prison security expert who is set up and put into the worlds most secure prison. Here he teams up with none other than Schwarzenegger who plays another prisoner, pretty much "the one you don't mess with". Together they plot their escape and it is done superbly! Overall I think this movie is a well made action thriller and will surprise audiences with something they haven't seen before from both Arnold and Sly. I will be surprised if this film doesn't get much attention at the box office because this movie goes back to a time when Hollywood was larger than life and gave us memorable characters and memorable action scenes. 10/10
