Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is, Escape Plan.

Escape plan stars two movie legends: Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Ray Breslin (Stallone) is a structural engineer who has spent his life on the insides of prisons. He spends his days testing the reliability of maximum security prisons. He goes inside as a prisoner and learns the guards habits, the structure of the prison and exploits any weakness it may have.  He has always escaped. He's found a way out of every prison he's ever went on the inside... until now.

When Ray is hired by a secret branch of the government to go into an undisclosed facility at a location unknown to him he finds himself in a place where all his plans have gone wrong. His safe word to get out isn't working and he can't find a way out. He befriends one fellow prisoner (Schwarzenegger) who helps him as much as he can to find a way out. They fight together to learn where they are being kept, who put them there to rot and why. They also have to trust each other which isn't something men in jail are too fond of doing. Definitely when one is a criminal and the other known for helping keep people in prisons.

Will Ray (Stallone) get back out and into his real life? Or will he be stuck in this prison forever because of a job gone wrong? Also if he does get out will he help a real prisoner escape? Watch and find out! It's two legends together in one action movie! It's almost as if the 90's are back!
