Escape Plan: The Extractors Synopsis:
Escape Plan: The Extractors is the 2019 movie and it is the story to rescue the kidnapped daughter of a Hong Kong tech mogul from a formidable Latvian prison, security expert Ray Breslin is hired. Breslin’s girlfriend is also captured. Despite the critical and commercial failure, the end of this most unlikely franchise, Escape Plan 2: Hades was shot back-to-back with a threequel, Escape Plan: The Extractors. Bizarrely, Sly keenly went out of his way to bash the previous movie ahead of this third film’s release. The Extractors, shot in just 17 days.
Ditching the pure prison break set-up of the first two films, the third go-around finds Ray Breslin tasked with breaking into Devil’s Station, a Latvian prison where the daughter of a Hong Kong tech mogul has been stashed.Like the overwhelming majority of these cynically junky “star-studded” VOD Actioners, his film makes every possible effort to keep its budget as low as possible.
At least those wooden actors are present, mind. Anyone lured to this on the promise of some Dave Bautista head-cracking action has been forewarned; he’s barely in the movie and looks bored even when he’s there, clearly just filling time between more fruitful shooting assignments.
As for Stallone himself, He’s in maybe 40% of the movie if we’re being generous, and doesn’t even enter the actual prison itself until late in the game. In what’s surely a laughable attempt to save money, Breslin spends about 15 minutes navigating a dark tunnel on his way into the prison itself.
The one vaguely promising performer here is Devon Sawa, for while it’s easy to scoff at his casting given that he’s hardly carved out a Filmgoraphy suggesting himself an imposing villain stood next to Stallone, he works fine with what he has. Sawa has filled out appropriately since he was Final Destination‘s skinny protagonist, with age adding a sure weathered grit to his face, even if it’s ultimately a bit depressing to see him in a role like this.
On the most elementary technical level, however, this film is quite repulsive.The third act does at least deliver a few surprisingly brutal deaths – including a memorable one involving a crowbar and the central third act fistfight has basic, rough-hewn effectiveness to it, even if it’s ultimately tough to care about of it.
