"I promised your mother that I would protect you."
It's jarring to hear Wade (Arnold Schwarzenegger) deliver that line long after his daughter has been bitten by a zombie. Many of us were raised on stories that depict Arnold as the ultimate action hero, saving the day, if not the entire world, over and over again.
It must have seemed enough just to have both Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger on the poster. For many film goers, these two kings of 1980's action cinema would be more than enough reason to buy a ticket for Escape Plan. And I think fans of films like Cobra and The Running Man will like what they see.
In need of a summer blockbuster that will put your brain on auto pilot for two hours, have some familiar faces, and put hair on your chest? Well then The Expendables will do the trick for you. This flick is jam-packed with past and present action superstars.
