Escape Plan Movie Quotes

"Escape Plan" movie quotes bring the action in the film following a professional escape artist tasked with breaking out of a high tech prison for his own freedom. The film was directed by Mikael Hafstrom using a screenplay by Miles Chapman and Jason Keller. "Escape Plan" opened in theaters on October 18, 2013.

In "Escape Plan," Ray Breslin (Sylvester Stallone) is a structural engineer who specializes in prison escapes. He has a specialized and proven three-step plan that allows him to break out of even the most secure facilities. He's recruited for a new job, testing the security at a high tech facility that he himself helped design. Ray agrees to do the job and is taken into the prison.

Ray soon learns that he isn't in this facility to test the security but rather someone paid handsomely to keep him locked away for life. Under the watchful eye of Warden Hobbes (Jim Caviezel), Ray teams up with fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to plan their escape. They won't be able to do it alone though with Ray's staff of Hush (50 Cent) and Abigail Ross (Amy Ryan) joining in his escape.

If "Escape Plan" makes you want to escape the theater, there's plenty else to see including movies like "The Fifth Estate," "Captain Phillips," "Gravity," "Machete Kills," "Runner Runner," "Don Jon," "Rush, "Prisoners,", "Enough Said," "The Family," and "Riddick,".

    Ray Breslin: "The mind of a man confined works differently than someone on the outside. He sees things in a different way. A successful breakout depends on three things: Knowing the layout, understanding the routine and help from outsider in. If you now the layout, the weak side is obvious. In Ben Water's case, it's the secure housing unit. It's located next to an unsecured fire garage. Knowing the guards routine was the next step. After I knew the routine, all I had to do was pick the date. The carton contained a thin layer of wax laminate. Lay it over the keypad, the impression will indicate which four keys were pressed. After I cover my tracks, I had one minute to make it to the fire response shed before the team did. Before you know it, I'm right where I want to be, just in time to catch my ride. Then your men drove me right off the grounds."

    Ray Breslin explains his thinking when it comes to breaking out of prisons. He has a specific set of steps to evaluate the location, the staff and the outside help needed to be successful.
