"Old-man action" I get the term, but I hate it. I grew up watching Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Seagal, JCVD, and many other greats. So when The Expendables hit I was overjoyed. It lead the way forms old favorites to come back to new films. Real action films. Two of the best ever Stallone and Schwarzenegger made a few then brought their star power together for Escape Plan.
Stallone stars as Ray Breslin. His family was murdered by an escaped convict so now he tests maximum security prisons to make sure they are escape proof. He gets imprisoned, finds a weakness and breaks out. Usually only the warden and his team know he is undercover. No one else.
He gets a job checking out a CIA prisonthat is off the books. Problem is it's a set up and Ray has been sent there to rot. Luckily he meets Emil played by Arnold Schwarzenegger and the two team up to break out of this inescapable prison.
The movie is action packed with loads of suspense. And Lionsgate has just released it on a 4K disc.
I own the Blu-ray, which looks fantastic but I have to say this 4K transfer is nothing short of amazing.
The transfer is remarkable, every color aspect from the dark and dreary scenes to a few of the more colorfull ones just pop of the screen. The sound and visual aspects are so well done that all the action scenes, and yes there are tons, seem almost real hn watching it on 4K.
Released to coincide with Escape Plane 2 this is a must own. If you have never seen it this is the version to buy. If you already own it trust me, pick this one up now.
Overall 4 out of 5 Stars
