      Larushka Ivan-Zadeh Times (UK) The plot, as incomprehensible as it is uninvolving, has Stallone's utterly unmemorable crack prison-break team banged up in yet another off-the-grid illegal jail called Hades. Rated: 1/5 Jul 20, 2018 Full Review Leslie Felperin Guardian The whole film is as graceless, lurid and unnecessary as a Stallone painting - but without the winning naivety. Rated: 2/5 Jul 20, 2018 Full Review James Dyer Empire Magazine A waste of Stallone's talent and star power, not to mention 94 minutes of your time. Rated: 1/5 Jul 18, 2018 Full Review Kenneth Seward Jr. IGN Movies Escape Plan 2: Hades fails to recapture what made the previous film a decent watch. It doesn’t offer up any thrills, compelling characters or humor. Rated: 4.8/10 Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Andrew Murray The Upcoming Utterly nonsensical and incomprehensible, Escape Plan 2 is as mindlessly bland an action flick as they come. Rated: 1/5 Feb 6, 2021 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine The entire nostalgic appeal of the original Escape Plan is gone, replaced by something genuinely terrible and weirdly incompetent. Rated: 2/10 Jan 27, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Wallace L I think my brain turned into mush watching this. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review Adam E While 2013's Escape Plan was no masterpiece, it did tap into the dumb-fun action movie vibe of the two leads' heyday. The film was a simple and entertaining enough B-grade actioner with Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger making a good team. Although it's likely that most missed it, 2018 saw the release of sequel Escape Plan 2: Hades starring Sylvester Stallone and Dave Bautista. The film went straight to DVD in the US and yet, despite it being a flop overall, a third installment is still currently in the works. The plot sees some of Ray Breslin's (Stallone) new recruits get kidnapped and thrown into Hades, a maximum security prison not unlike The Tomb from the last movie except it's always moving and shifting, making its layout hard to figure out, and some of the staff are actual robots. Yes. Robots. Breslin attempts, with the help of his hacker friend Hush (50 Cent), former associate Trent (Dave Bautista) and others, to break his team out of Hades while Breslin's protégé Shu Ren (Huang Xiaoming), one of the prisoners, tries to understand the prison's inner workings. Eventually, everyone finds themselves in Hades and the real "escape plan" is finally put into motion. Escape Plan's premise should have been an easy one to bank on in continuing sequels. Essentially, you could have just had Breslin tackle different types of prisons with the help of Schwarzenegger or other big name co-stars with a new hammy, villainous warden every time. Somehow, however, Hades is a convoluted mess and neither Stallone or Bautista get much screen time. Both really come into play in the film's last third and, until that point, we're mostly spending time with Shu Ren and other new, far less charismatic and entertaining leads. This movie feels more like the fourth or fifth movie in a tired franchise than it does a straight-up sequel. The plot never really takes off, the new characters are dull, the writing is terrible, the twists are uninspired and the film ends abruptly, without any real ending. While Bautista, when he's actually in the movie, is likable, the cinematography is at least competent and the prison's concept is appealing, this is all frankly half-assed. What could have been a light-hearted and fun sequel turns out to be a surprisingly miserable experience that should alienate both newcomers and fans of the original. In the same way that The Expendables ran out of steam with its third film, this one completely deflates after just one movie. Awful. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review The title is a 'plan', but it is meaningless. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/09/23 Full Review Andre G I like the storyline better in part one. The only reason I rated part two better is only because there's fight scenes throughout the entire movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/25/23 Full Review Mondo C It's not as bad as other reviews say. It was entertaining. Some good fight scenes. Good tech. I've seen a lot worse. It's much more deserving than the low 8% on this movie sure for sure. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/04/23 Full Review Kastro D The most sleep inducing borefest. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
