"I killed someone."

Wow! A political-thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat and my hands rustling my hair. Interesting subject: An american, with his family, moves to a South-East Asian country and find themselves in the middle of a coup with them being the target on the on the F*CKING SECOND DAY! I love how this film is rich with multiple perspectives, having the rebels crying "Blood For Water" and an innocent American family who happened to be there just for "work". I see it as (1) a message to the violent rebels that they are [at times] crossing the line victimizing the innocent ones, and (2) a message to people who simply thought that their invention will help people, but in reality, manipulated by their government and capitalist giants to cause suffering to more vulnerable pe...

No Escape-from what country I wonder?

The biggest complaint being leveled at this otherwise well made mid-level thriller is any of the following phrases associated with cultural insensitivity. These words include xenophobic, retrograde, bigoted, and yes even racist. No Escape's flaws are more indicative of a messy script than actual racial prejudice motivating its depiction of nonwhites. We don't even know what country the action takes place in.
Despite this stigma, I'm not gonna lie about No Escape. It did have me entertained and engaged for most of the time. There are a couple bits which are meant to be serious or suspenseful but the direction doesn't make it work (again it's otherwise well done). Owen Wilson and Lake Bell are believable as the American couple abroad with their children that happen to arrive right when th...

Owen Wilson for once not in a comedy.

"Look I came here more for the women…
Well … partially for the women.
I came here to pave the way for you."

"No Escape" puts the spotlight back again on the undervalued discipline of dwarf-tossing. This favorite bar sport, as practiced by Aragorn in "The Lord of the Rings" (first in the mines of Moria, and then at the Battle of Helm's Deep), is also used here in the most nerve-provoking moment. Let me briefly mention that this film is definitely not suitable for heart patients and pregnant women. You can expect this movie to be extremely exciting. Up to a certain point that is. Because ultimately this film evolves into an implausible story. The number of desperate situations are shown one after the other in such a fast pace, that it feels like an ultra...

Tense gripping edge of the seat stuff

Great film finally i get to watch something that's actually good. starring owen wilson in a serious role who does a great job while remaining very likeable and real. This centres on a family who move for a new job overseas but trouble breaks out and there is a uprising and his family and all tourists become targets, they then need to get out of the country alive while protecting their kids.
its a edge of the seat gripping movie from the moment the trouble starts its non stop tense and edgy.
good direction and story its a very good surprise movie. also starring pierce bronsan who is also cool in this ( he gets better with age it seems )
only one quibble the acting of the wife wasn't always as good as it should of been . but she had her moments but a better actress would of really been...

No Escape (2015) - Regal Beagle Review

To be honest, I had absolutely no desire to see this film. Owen Wilson and action films do NOT seem like a winning combination. Surprisingly, he was not the problem(s) I had with the movie.

Let me preface what I’m about to say with: I enjoyed this movie. It made me sit on the edge of my seat, it made me root for success, but above all, unfortunately, it made me confused because this film tried too hard to be a movie that it wasn’t. If you’re going to make an action film, you have two ways to go:

Road #1: Nothing but action. Little to no emotional connection. You want the hero to succeed and that’s about it. Die Hard, First Blood, Mad Max: Fury Road. These films come to mind.

Road #2: Amazing action sequences, but you genuinely care about the hero and his/her relationships. Taken,...
