Good old school action with featuring elderly action-men.

I was actually expecting an Expendables type of movie, where these two old timers would go head to head in insults and jokes about their age and history as Hollywood actors... But luckily the movie is quit serious.
At least as serious as a 1990's era type of action can be.
The plot starts out very promising, with whole backstory of why Ray Breslin(Stallone) "works" as security consultant that breks out of prisons, to prove their securitys flaws, for a living.
But soon the plot is all twisted with global agendas, agencies and high value prisoners. This clutters things up too much in my opinion. It's an prison escape movie above all, and they should have kept more focus on that.
The bad guys are sadly super stereotypical, as is most of the characters.
Emil Rottmayer(Schwarzenegger) is introduced rather late in the movie, but he sure makes for a good adition. Stallone and Schwarzeneggers co-op acting is actually funny and good at times. And it's not Commando slap stick style(maybe a tiny bit).
For me the worst part about the movie was the unrealistic setting of the super prison they're trying to escape from. I mean, they could easily have made some decisions on this that wouldn't have influenced the plot at all, but still keep the intecraty of the more technical side of a prison brake...
I was worth seeing alone for the above avarage performace of Stallone and Schwarzenegger.
But plot and stereotypical'ness was just bad! (some of the effects was shitty as well)
