Sadly not even a well-established cast of action heroes can turn this into anything more than a dull, predictable action-thriller. For this third installment in the franchise, Stallone is once again joined by Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson as members of his crew, as well as top martial arts talent from Asia, in the form of Max Zhang. Despite this pedigree, the fight scenes in Escape Plan: The Extractors are poorly choreographed and much of the cinematography is too dark to really follow the action. Furthermore, the villains don't do much more than threaten, kill, and talk in exposition in an attempt to explain the movie's convoluted ransom and revenge plot.

As a result, it is very difficult to care about any of the characters. Fans of the first two Escape Plan movies -- particularly the first one, which co-starred Arnold Schwarzenegger -- will likely feel short-changed by this low-budget attempt to keep the franchise moving. It would certainly seem like a challenge too far to churn out another installment after this.
