[a movie watched on 12th October]

This was an old story being retold in a new movie - how prisoners planned to escape from jail, hence the title. Of course, the heroes would always succeed in doing that - no matter how sophisticated and modern the prison is. One reason why this movie is interesting: two veteran actors starring as the main roles (or could it be the other one was only playing the supporting role?). Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger looked old but of course they were strong enough to have numerous fights and eventually, escape from hell. If I were to rate the level of violence for this movie in the continuum of 1 to 10, I would award 6.5. In other words, the fighting actions would be tolerable for younger viewers. So you can watch kids, my recommendation. I am sure you have all seen worse than this.
