Watched the preview. The movie is excellent and very thrilling.
The director has transformed from a good horror movie maker to commercial thriller movie maker.
There should be more marketing done for this movie.
Must watch for all set of audience but for those who wouldn’t ride into a roller coaster!
_**What if you’re a Westerner and get stuck in a political uprising in Southeast Asia?**_
An American family moves to a country in Southeast Asia that borders Vietnam but suddenly find themselves in the midst of a coup. Owen Wilson plays the father and Lake Bell the mother. Pierce Brosnan is on hand as a Brit that helps them out.
“No Escape” (2015) is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that tackles a real-life possibility. What happens if you’re unexpectedly thrust into a situation where you HAVE to protect your family? Would you kill to survive? This is like “The Killing Fields” (1985) in the modern day, albeit way more compelling and succinct.
It’s nice to see Owen in something serious; he plays the every-man role well. Meanwhile Lake ain’t no slouch and Brosnan kicks axx in a peripheral part.
The film runs 1 hour, 43 minutes, and was shot in Thailand.
A real surprise find – well worth a watch
NOTE: I’ve skirted around some of the key thrilling episodes that occur within the film, but I feel I’ve talked about them without actually giving anything away. I don’t think this review requires a spoiler alert!
I watched this having heard absolutely nothing about it, and having not even heard of it. I caught the picture of the cover art, and it seemed like it was Wilson and Brosnan, so thought I’d take a look.
Right from the off – it had the feel of something everso slightly different from the normal action film fodder. I won’t ruin the surprise beginning, and then it cuts to the Wilson based family heading into this unnamed Asian country for a job-move.
From almost upon arrival and for the rest of the film, it’s something of a thrill ride. I found myself particularly enthralled when Bell was trapped in their hotel room at the beginning of events – something about the acting and the filming really conveyed real fear and this totally hooked me in. It was clear that this was going to be a decent film from this moment on. It has a slightly “handicam” film-making quality about it, but in this instance, it absolutely adds to the feel imho.
From the hotel rooftop to the adjacent, again, it conveyed real fear. Would you do that with your family? Shocking from a parents point of view, but believable in that you’d have no choice. From a parental perspective – totally shocking and enthralling. My wife happened to walk into the room just at this point, and she was definitely mentally scarred by what she saw!
And there it goes on – for me, the only real slight let-downs in the movie are when Brosnan re-finds the family which in such a scenario really isn’t likely to have happened, and indeed what Bell does whilst they are hiding in the old man’s garden. I don’t feel that a mother, protecting her children would have done that.
Apart from these small elements of storyline which probably allowed a little too much implausibility, along with just how much difficulty with the local rebels Wilson’s character was realistically likely to overcome and deal with, particularly towards the end of the film – even with full adrenalin running were the only small faults.
Still, having said all that – I’ll be watching this again soon. It was quite a thrill ride and most certainly not wholesome family entertainment. There’s some really quite surprisingly graphic scenes of violence, which totally suited the film, but definitely not for young eyes.
A Non-Stop Heart Pounder!
There were scenes in this movie when I literally felt as if my heart was going to pound its way out of my chest. Among other scenes I’m thinking of the extremely quease-inducing one where the Dwyers have to leap from one building roof to another to escape those trying to kill them – and as part of it they actually have to throw their young children across the open space from one roof to another. I could barely watch that scene. And has there been a more horrific scene filmed than the one in which young Lucy Dwyer (who can’t be more than 10) has a gun put to her head and another in her hands and is told she’ll be killed unless she kills her father. There are several times in this movie where the title seems to be the only possible conclusion. Surely there’s no escape for this family.
“No Escape” is set in a fictional country in southeast Asia. All we know from the plot is that it borders Vietnam. Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson) has taken a job with an American company in that country, only to find that virtually the moment he arrives, a violent anti- American revolution breaks out and he and his family are being sought out along with every other American, and every other westerner. It’s sometimes a disorienting movie, set in a large city. Having visited the Chinese cities of Beijing and Changsha, the portrayal of the city seemed authentic. China is a peaceful country, but everything was chaotic enough that I didn’t venture out too far on my own for fear that I’d end up hopelessly lost. Jack and his family are running for their lives, disoriented and lost, with danger potentially lurking around every corner. The atmosphere was great. It’s truly one of the most intense movies I’ve ever seen.
The performances from the leads were all superb. I haven’t seen Wilson in too many serious roles, but he seemed perfectly cast as Jack, and I was very impressed with Lake Bell, who played Jack’s wife Annie, with whom I was previously unfamiliar. The children were fantastic. Played by Sterling Jerins (who was Lucy in the above- mentioned scene) and the even younger Claire Geare, they didn’t miss a beat. There was no “irritating child actor” thing going on here. Jerins and Geare hit the mark perfectly. Pierce Brosnan rounded out the main cast as some sort of British agent who helps the Dwyers in their desperate attempt to escape.
This is one of the best suspense/thrillers I’ve seen in a very long time. To the extent that it has weaknesses, perhaps it started out a little bit slow – but only for a few minutes, and once the action starts it doesn’t stop. It also might have been helpful if the revolution had been a little more clearly explained. All we know is that there’s resentment against this American company Jack has arrived to work for. But those are minor weaknesses. I haven’t really come across too many movies that have literally kept me glued to the edge of my seat. This one did. (9/10)
