Oh for gosh sakes, don't miss the point of this enjoyable flick! The fighting was quite good, though swing and miss was a little overused. However, the main idea is that there is a damsel (or two) in distress. Who doesn't love this? Then there is the fact that the damsel is the daughter of a powerful Chinese business mogul....add to this her former bodyguard boyfriend saw through to Daddy's corruption which daughter doesn't yet know about. This bodyguard just happens to be a very good fighter we can enjoy watching. But above all we love his integrity. Add to this these lovers are separated once Daddy realizes his daughter has a suitor who is also on to him. This movie takes on a far broader political significance the post-Wuhan virus pandemic. What I love: It's not anti-Chinese. In every culture there are good, at least somewhat god-fearing people. We don't have to hate all the Chinese to denounce what's going on in their government. The poor Chinese people themselves are often captive to it. Stallone always puts some greater significance into his movies.

Great ensemble of characters. This movie has a solid story line. They do reflect back on the first movie but they include clips of the portion to help you follow and it keeps you pumped as they think back on an intense moment. I've never seen Him Zhang before. I was very impressed. Dave Bautista was great. And of course STALLONE... The reason I was interested in movie to begin with - Didn't disappoint. I was glued to my seat until the movie ended and I would love another addition to this series.
I watched it as I figured it would be like Expendables and usually like Stallone films. The acting was actually pretty bad by many players. The killing of certain people makes you scratch your head....maybe they just wanted to be different. Well, different it was, but it didn't add to the film, just took away from it slightly. I won't be watching it twice for the price I paid....which was my time.

I did enjoy the first two. This one seems as if there will be a fourth movie base on a quick foreshadowing in one particular scene. It's overall a search and rescue mission with some hidden romance between a former bodyguard and a hostage. It was ok. The prison is in Latvia where DR. Doom is from. Dr. Doom should have made a cameo in this.

the big what's his name in one of his earliest appearances, with little to do, but done well. as always, stallone spares us any attempts at nuanced acting. i give it a yes as a yet another reprise of an aktioner that has been done many, many times.

Liked the first installment of Escape Plan but my expectations were not that high for this sequel. It was even worse than I thought it would be, barely watchable. Terrible plot, no juice whatsoever...don't bother.
