No Escape: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson) together with his wife Annie (Lake Bell) and their two young daughters (Sterling Jerins, Claire Grace) just landed safely in an unnamed asian country. Into their dismay, they cannot locate the assigned driver to fetch them from the airport. Good thing that they met Hammond (Pierce Brosnan) who is also staying at the same hotel with them. After arriving at the hotel, rebels began to spark a riot to the city and killing every American in sight. Soon, Jack and his family try to find a way out and escape the dangerous city to survive.

The intensity and the thrills of the film escalated quickly. It already got its rhythm from the start and never looses the steam while building up the tension all the way to the end. It is a palpitating ride  in which you simply hold on to the edge of your seats. There are just some questionable scenes that we find a bit imprecise, especially when Pierce Brosnan's character shows up. They also didn't explain further on why the rebels make these vicious attacks but they surely effectively sell the horror and violence of the entire premise. 

They've done great with their cast, pushing Owen Wilson and Lake Bell to their limits. The two are much known for comedy, but they effortlessly sell their characters well for you to root for their safety. Pierce Brosnan made a slight impact due to limited screen time, but he made his presence felt whenever he is around. 

Overall, No Escape is an engaging thriller from start to finish. It is a fast pace heart rising tension film that is solid for a popcorn entertainment.
