Escape Plan
If this were 1988, the world would stop for “Escape Plan,” which finally pairs Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger as above-the-title talents. The duo haven’t been able to keep themselves from looking backwards in recent films: both seem in denial of their advanced ages, with Schwarzenegger taking on roles fit for someone two decades younger, and Stallone content to play his greatest hits, sometimes in duet form with the “Expendables” movies. Appropriately, “Escape Plan” also doesn’t feel as if it’s made for this era, but amusingly seems like a relic of the early aughts, when Stallone was fronting dubious direct-to-video schlock, Schwarzenegger was a declining attraction, and getting 50 Cent in a supporting role seemed like a major coup.

Need someone to direct your second or third-tier thriller with absolutely no voice and only the most perfunctory sense of style and execution? Look no further than Mikael Håfström.
