Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Escape Plan didn’t need a sequel. It certainly didn’t need TWO sequels. That said I kinda didn’t hate Escape Plan 2 (most people did) and, for me at least, The Extractors (filmed back to back with Hades) was perfect train ride movie. Literally – I watched it on a train journey! It’s all bullshit machismo from start to end that you’ve seen a million times before and the story is so lean it could be vegan but Stallone delivers as always and the fights/action are just about up to scratch enough to enjoy. Look most will hate it… for me it passed the time on a very boring day. Make of that what you will….
