Action makes a comeback - for a change, with a plot

Don't ever expect the movie to be bigger than the star cast - they are and unapologetically the centre piece of the movie. Am glad the director didn't choose to cast them as super heroes or something and they both play their roles to suit their real age.

Movie moves fast though the 2nd half could've been crisper. Action is real, believable and rarely over the top, given the premise.

All in all, don't go by what the critics say. If you are an action fan, born late in the last decace, you'll enjoy the ride.

Breaking out is an inside job.
The most secure prison ever built.
No one breaks out alone
Audio/Video Mismatch
Just minutes into the picture, Breslin finishes a phone call: he hangs up, and is just exiting the booth when we hear the distinct sound of a coin hitting the coin return slot and NOT falling into the phone company coin bin, as it would if the person had made a successful outgoing call.

Character Error
To locate their position, they are pointing the sextant to the polar star. When they got the partial result "latitude: 30 degrees", they are still wondering if it is the northern or the southern hemisphere. However, since you cannot see the polar star from the southern hemisphere, it is quite obvious on which hemisphere they are.

Character Error
Javed is supposedly Moroccan, yet he speaks fluent Urdu (Pakistani) when he says, "Ye Jahannum kay darwazay hain," (These are the gates of Hell) during a scene with Breslin.

As Ray is hanging from a rope ladder, in close up, one of the ropes is torn by a bullet. In the following wide shot, the ladder is fixed.

When the doctor is stitching up Breslan's leg, there are xrays of the lumbar spine hanging in the view box. The lateral view is hung upside down.

Caitriona Balfe is listed as "Jessica MILLER" in the credits, but her character's name is actually "Jessica MAYER" in the movie.
This is the first time that both action legends Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, are paired in leading roles in the same film.

Bruce Willis was once to star in this film, with Antoine Fuqua directing.

Sylvester Stallone injured a tendon of his right foot during the filming of a fight scene. He required 70 stitches.

This is only Jim Caviezel's second time playing a villain.
