No Escape

No Escape

Action, Thriller

In their new overseas home, an American family soon finds themselves caught in the middle of a coup, and they frantically look for a safe escape in an environment where foreigners are being immediately executed.

The critical consensus

At times the tone becomes so apocalyptic you swear you’re watching a zombie movie in flip-flops, as if the mob’s been infected by an anti-American rage virus.

Owen Wilson and Lake Bell lift an inconsistent and unimaginative actioner.

Can't decide whether it's virulently racist or just wilfully ignorant...

Adam Woodward, Little White Lies, 02/09/2015

An exploitation movie in every sense of the word, this politically dubious, entertainingly ludicrous action film stars Owen Wilson as an American engineer who moves his wife (Lake Bell) and two young daughters to an unnamed country in South East Asia at the exact moment that a genocidal revolution turns said country into an apocalyptic war zone.

No Escape offers solid entertainment.

Bravura thrills cannot rescue this tale of a man struggling to save his family when they are entangled in a bid to overthrow a south-east Asian state.
