Sylvester Stallone Looks Bored In Unnecessary Sequel 'Escape Plan 2: Hades'

He lets Huang Xiaoming do the heavy-lifting.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Dave Bautista, Huang Xiaoming

Directed by Steven C Miller

The modest 2013 prison break hit Escape Plan has spawned a sequel no one wanted. Sylvester Stallone reprises his role as security expert Ray Breslin, and this time he’s springing his protégé (Huang Xiaoming) out of a high-tech jail that looks like a tacky discotheque.

Stallone and Dave Bautista (phoning in as Breslin’s old pal) may have top billing but it’s Huang who does the heavy-lifting in this choppy tosh.

The action is uninspired, the dialogue cringe-worthy (Huang’s stilted English made some scenes even harder to watch) and the pacing plodding. You want to escape to the cinema for this? (**)
