Win Escape Plan: The Ultimate Trilogy on DVD from Signature Entertainment

Do you want to get your hands on all three Escape Plan prison break thrillers? Attack from Planet B and Signature Entertainment have a copy of Escape Plan: The Ultimate Trilogy available on DVD to giveaway (UK only).

The Escape Plan franchise offers the same sort of excessive, over-the-top action that we have come to expect from Sylvester Stallone, with enough hand-to-hand combat to satisfy fans of 1980s action fare. Directed by John Herzfeld, Escape Plan 3 sees Stallone return as security expert Ray Breslin.

Escape Plan 3 (2019, USA) Signature Entertainment DVD Review

Escape Plan 3 (2019)

Unlike Escape Plan or its sequel, Escape Plan 3 strips away all elements of science fiction and instead injects realism into this dramatic tale of revenge. And whilst Escape Plan 2 left us with certain expectations as to where the third installment was headed, the organisation responsible for “The Tomb” and “Hades” – now known to be Zhang Innovations – is not central to the plot of Escape Plan 3. That distinction is instead given to Devon Sawa’s character, Lester Clark Jr. Because of this, its likely that Escape Plan 3 – previously marketed as the final installment – will receive a fourth outing.

“I’m done with prisons.”

Escape Plan 2 (2018, China / USA) Review

Escape Plan 2 (2018)

Five years after the nostalgia trip that was Escape Plan – a dream team of 80s action muscle; specifically Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger – its sequel, imaginatively titled Escape Plan 2, replaces Schwarzenegger with former professional wrestler, Dave Bautista and Xiaoming Huang. Escape Plan 2 is a sequel that Stallone himself has called “beyond awful”, and yet I have to admit that I actually quite enjoyed watching it for the same reasons I enjoyed its predecessor: its excessive, over-the-top action; although this time there is a lot more martial artistry, courtesy of Xiaoming Huang.

“This isn’t a prison. It’s a machine.”

As co-owner of Breslin-Clark, Breslin specialises in testing the reliability of maximum security prisons. The weaknesses that are uncovered by Breslin-Clark can then be eliminated.
