Escape Plan

PLANNING FOR RETIREMENT They're old, but does that mean they can't kick ass anymore?
Alan Markfield

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone shared the screen in two Expendables flicks, but here they both take lead roles. Stallone plays a prison expert who’s locked up in a high-tech facility of his own design; Schwarzenegger is a mysterious fellow inmate. The escape plan somehow involves a confrontation between the action icons (and sometime Planet Hollywood investors). ”It felt really important to have a fight,” director Mikael Håfström says. ”We grew up with these guys. You can’t make a film with Arnold and Sly and not give them that kind of moment.” To translate so your 12-year-old self will understand: This is the movie where Rambo punches the Terminator.
