Escape Plan: Muslim @ CIA Prison is Hero of New Stallone-Schwarzenegger Flick; Prays to allah as He Saves Action Stars
How do you know America is well on its way to becoming a Muslim nation? When two of its most famous action stars agree to star in a movie in which a Muslim prisoner in a CIA prison is the hero of the movie and saves their lives by praying to allah and taking a bullet for them while declaring, “allahu akbar [our Muslim god is the greatest--greater than your god].”
Yes, it’s Post-Post-9/11 at the movies, this weekend, with the debut of “Escape Plan,” starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, a cockamamie, confusing statement against the CIA, rendition for Islamic terrorists, waterboarding, and capitalism.
The pair are well into their 60s, and most of their recent forays into the movies have been duds, both in plot and in box office return. So, apparently, they believe the way to rejuvenate (aside from Stallone’s HGH, steroids, and apparent botox use) is to inject a little jihad into their genre.
So, they turn the formula they once had in the ’80s–fighting the bad guys, many of whom were Muslim (as they are in real life in great numbers–see 9/11, Fort Hood, Westgate Mall, Undiebomber, Shoe Bomber, etc., etc. ad nauseaum). Instead, the villains here are those running a CIA prison where a third of the prisoners are Muslim. The prison adminstrators are evil and helped frame Stallone–an expert on how to build prisons that are escape-proof–and imprison him in the secret jail forever, along with Schwarzenegger. Oh, and the “evildoers” also waterboard Arnold Schwarzenegger (because the CIA only waterboards the good guys, not terrorists, right?).
The movie is long, dull, and boring, but, hey, the leader of the Muslim prisoners, Javed (played by actor Faran Tahir), agrees to use his opportunity to go outside and pray to allah to get intelligence for Schwarzenegger and Stallone and help them hatch their escape. He also gives his life and body–Rambo-style–for the pair, as they escape. And, again, he screams “allahu [FUBAR],” as he gives his life so the senior citizen action stars can be free and fight back against their CIA tormentors.
The “story”: Stallone, the prison expert, is hired by the builders of prisons to test their jails to see whether they are escape-proof. So, he gets himself put inside prisons as an inmate by pretending to do crimes, and then he escapes, showing the jailers how to improve their prisons and make them escape-free. But his latest foray is into a super-maximum-security prison, and he’s been kidnapped and framed, stuck in the prison forever. He doesn’t know where the prison is and is trying to figure out how to get out. The CIA jailers have read his books and they’ve made the prison virtually escape-proof. He befriends some kind of money man, played by Schwarzenegger, who is in the joint because the prison warden wants to know where Schwarzenegger and an accomplice stashed some major money.
Stallone and Schwarzenegger try to escape but it’s difficult. They need the Muslim and his fellow Muslims to stage a riot and otherwise distract the guards. And, then, of course, the Muslim uses Muslim prayer sessions and gives his life in the name of allah (the Moon cult god), saving their lives.
The tagline of the movie is, “No One Breaks Out Alone.” You see, you need a Muslim criminal in a CIA prison to pray to allah and help you get out.
While it’s true that neither Stallone nor Schwarzenegger is a producer of this movie, they are the only reasons the movie is in theaters. And they could have objected to the pan-jihadist, politically correct tone of the movie . . . just as a Schwarzenegger action movie, “The 6th Day,” was changed to turn Islamic terrorist villains into something else to satisfy Muslim grievance theater pimps. But they didn’t. Because they probably have a piece of the action of this movie in some way, shape, or form. And I’m sure they know this movie will do well in Muslim countries that see themselves as the heroes and America’s CIA as the villain. This fits their preferred narrative.
These two aging action stars far past their prime aren’t believable in anything they do in this movie. And that includes their need for Muslim criminals and prayers to allah to save them.
As I’ve noted on this site before, I interviewed Stallone when he was in Detroit promoting his last Rocky installment, “Rocky Balboa” (read my review). At the time, he was making his last Rambo flick, “Rambo” (read my review), and told me it would be set in Burma/Myanmar. I asked him if the villains would be Muslim, and he said no. He said I was right that they probably should have been for accuracy’s sake, but when I asked him why they were not, he didn’t give a satisfactory answer. And Stallone’s new versions of terrorists and heroes (including the devout Muslim in this flick) are twisted.
Stallone and Schwarzenegger, desperate to continue their ’80s box office success, sold out to political correctness. And the jihad. But it won’t change the fact that they are both long past their prime. And Schwarzenegger still can’t change our first thought whenever we hear his name – his affair and son with the ugly maid (or our second thought – his bloated, failed governorship of California).
Up next? I wouldn’t be surprised if they get awards at the annual HAMAS CAIR banquet.
Sadly, there’s no escape from “Escape Plan’s” PC burden. Or its schlocky, preposterous, predictable story.
