The first Escape Plan movie was far from top tier entertainment, but it had enough action and thrills in it to make it fun at the very least throughout the running time.
This sequel on the other hand is an absolute bore, which probably explains why it was released direct-to-DVD.
There’s no Arnie this time, so it’s just Sylvester alone as he returns to prison to break out one of his task force members.
Nothing of note really happens and it all feels like a 90 minute+ marketing trailer for the third film.
This is one film to let elude you.
