The Action Junkies : Escape Plan

So with a bit of a break of over a month but we’re back with the Christmas period behind us and Jade (@CelluloidAK) gives her run down of her top movies of 2013, not before discussing her number 1 film Escape plan.

Escape Plan is the monutenus film where Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone co headline the same film. Stallone plays Ray Breslin, who gets hired to be put in prison to escape out of them to find the flaws within the system. He gets offered a multi-million dollar deal  to break out of a top secret prison that is supposedly escape-proof.  Things go south when the warden (Jim Caviezel) is not who he seems and must turn to fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) and plan to escape together.

Chris (@CinemaTronix) also chips in on some of the films he likes in 20013. It’s great to be back a hopefully a lot more will follow.

Follow us on twitter @Action_Junkies

See you next week with Enemies Closer.


The Action Junkies : Bullet to the Head

So it’s another episode of the Action Junkies Podcast. The podcast where Chris (@CinemaTronix) and Jade (@CelluloidAK) talk about the recent Walter Hill action film starring Jade’s number one crush of all time Sylvester Stallone.

Sly stars as a hitman who is trying to get rubbed off by some shady people after doing a job for them. In order to stay alive he must team up with a cop (Sung Kang) who’s is out to find the people responsible for killing his ex-partner.

This is a good as we really differ on this film, (no prizes for guessing where Jade stands on this) so sit back and enjoy.

Next week will be the new Van Damme film Enemies Closer, also look out for Escape Plan and Supercop coming soon.
