Escape Plan: The Extractors - Wikipedia

Viewing Date: Aug 12, 2021

Starring: Sylvester Stallone, Dave Bautista, Jin Zhang, Harry Shum Jr, Devon Sava, 50 Cent

Plot: The daughter of a Hong Kong tech executive goes missing in what appears to be a routine ransom job. As Breslin and his crew delve deeper, they discover the culprit is the deranged son of one of their former foes, who also kidnapped Breslin’s love and is holding her inside the massive prison known as Devil’s Station. (via IMDB)

Rules

  • Product Placements
  • “Zhang”
  • “Wong” (also applies to bad puns from the viewers)
  • “Chine”
  • Stallone goes full Rambo

Viewer Quotes

  • “You messed with the Wong guy.” (and about 10 more like this)

What We Learned

  • Body guards don’t need to be armed, only Ray Breslen
  • 80 year old Sly Stallone is still jacked and can kill people with his bare hands.
  • Not to watch a 4th ‘Escape Plan’, if they decide to make one.

Final Take: This was just a bad movie, but not in a good way. Not much to write about because it was another formulaic, thin plotted action movie where Sly and friends took a pay day for a movie targeting the China market. I think 50 Cent was in one scene, although had one of the top billings of the cast (in the US at least). Dave Bautista was reliably entertaining as the one man wrecking crew, and Sly did have a decent final fight scene. Beyond that… terrible. I did see that this movie may have set a record for having so much of the film as production information (90 seconds of production company logos and nearly 9 mins of credits), so 11.7% of the run time of the film. That’s got to be something- right?
