No Escape Movie Review

An intense international thriller, NO ESCAPE centers on an American businessman (Wilson) as he and his family settle into their new home in Southeast Asia. Suddenly finding themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, they must frantically look for a safe escape as rebels mercilessly attack the city. Directed by John Erick Dowdle and written together with his brother Drew, NO ESCAPE stars Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell.

Watched No Escape with Gary at Downtown East Cathay Cineplex earlier in the afternoon!

This film was fast-pace and compact though its plot could have been fine-tuned. The story flow was decent but its introductory appear rather brief without much depth. Not only that, certain occurrence appear not only coincidence but predictable as well.

Nevertheless, the intense scenes depicted kept me on the edge of my seat. It also educated me the importance of kinship, team spirit and inspire one to posses that positive attitude in such situation. 

Ratings: 3.2/5
