Film Review: Probable Events is the Situation in Tense ‘No Escape’

26 August 2015 3:15 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – In a very unstable world, and in a sense that these problems are international, we all can be stuck in war at any time – there is no way to get away from it. “No Escape” takes this notion to the extreme, with an American family – led by Owen Wilson – caught in a war zone.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

How the situation relates to us all is the film’s strength, with more tense moments than the most improbable action film. The circumstance of foreign business intervention in a fictional Asian country’s water supply spurs the population to rise up against the prime minister and foreigners, which includes a mid level engineer portrayed by Wilson. It includes Pierce Brosnan taking a role as a mysterious British operative – sound familiar? – and the veteran actor makes the most of it with a rollicking and almost mocking persona. The pulse pounding action never lets up, »

‘No Escape’ worthy of ridicule, praise

No Escape

Written by John Erick Dowdle & Drew Dowdle

Directed by John Erick Dowdle

USA, 2015

How many foreign lives does it take to save a white American family? Thanks to the new chase-yarn, No Escape, we now have an answer. The guiltiest of guilty pleasures, director John Erick Dowdle has expertly crafted a taut action-thriller crammed with enough white privilege to make The Donald blush. Surprisingly, it’s the intense performance of Owen Wilson that might allow you to curb your conscience and go along for the ride. It’s undeniably fun… if you don’t think about it too much.

Watching No Escape is a decidedly schizophrenic experience. On the one hand, John Erick Dowdle and his brother, Drew, have written an earnest script that takes its peril very seriously. All of the primary characters (who just happen to be Westerners) are constructed with the utmost care; giving each »

No Escape (2015) – The Review

25 August 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Those far away places with the strange-sounding names”, that’s how the old tune goes, I believe. Well, that song’s title as been the theme for many a motion picture, mainly comedies. It’s a great way to exploit the old “fish out of water” fodder for laughs. There’s the foreign on our own turf, with the perplexed visitors in The Terminal and Crocodile Dundee. And, on the flip side we’ve seen the new batch of Grisswolds trying to adapt to unfamiliar parts of their homeland just a few weeks ago in the new Vacation reboot, while the classic clan were the standard “ugly Americans” abroad nearly thirty years ago in European Vacation. And earlier this year a trio of comic misfits led by Vince Vaughn invaded Germany in Unfinished Business. This new film puts a very serious twist on this premise, one that plants the film firmly in thriller territory. »

'No Escape' Review: A Terrifying, Brutal Nightmare

24 August 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

No Escape is a sensationalist film with questionable racial overtones. But it is also utterly gripping and visceral. There are moments of dread that will have your eyeballs glued to the screen. The nightmare scenario it depicts is so terrifying, even the most skeptical viewer will be enthralled. No Escape is brutal, no holds barred; with disturbingly realistic violence. The trailers only hint at the carnage that awaits. Writer/director John Erick Dowdle (Quarantine) takes his horror roots to a riveting new level.

Owen Wilson stars as Jack Dwyer, an engineer starting a new life with his family in Asia. His wife (Lake Bell) isn't happy leaving their lives behind, but she puts on a brave face for their plucky daughters (Claire Geare, Sterling Jerins). The film begins with the Dwyer family in flight and encountering a cheerful passenger (Pierce Brosnan). Who is kind enough to give them a ride to their hotel, »

No Escape Movie Review

No Escape The Weinstein Company Reviewed by: Tami Smith, Guest Reviewer for Shockya. Grade: B- Director: John Erick Dowdle Screenwriters: John Erick Dowdle, Drew Dowdle Cast: Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan, Lake Bell, Sterling Jerins, Claire Geare Release date: August 26, 2015 After arriving in Istanbul on a bright day in May 1998 we stepped into an unknown land. Since we did not speak Turkish and the locals did not speak English or French we had to rely on hand movements and facial expressions. After eating a few Borekes, Baklava and drinking black tea we realized that this was going to be a fun-filled week even without understanding the local language.  [ Read More ]

Film Review: ‘No Escape’

24 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If J.A. Bayona’s survival epic “The Impossible” seemed a bit callous in suggesting that the chief victims of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami were those well-to-do Westerners who chose the wrong week for a Thai holiday, it still looks like a model of human compassion and ethnic sensitivity next to “No Escape.” This latest thriller from director/co-writer John Erick Dowdle (“Devil,” “As Above, So Below”) is a technically accomplished, morally rank slab of cultural exploitation about an American family caught up in a violent uprising in an anonymous Southeast Asian country — one whose dark-skinned natives are on hand to kill and be killed, but who could otherwise scarcely be of less dramatic concern or interest to those behind the camera. Grittily propulsive filmmaking and solid performances from Owen Wilson and Lake Bell aside, there’s no escaping the movie’s hand-wringing manipulations and pandering sense of privilege — which might, »

Owen Wilson, Lake Bell, Pierce Brosnan Thrill at ‘No Escape’ Premiere

18 August 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Owen Wilson talked about his first conversations with brothers and filmmaking duo John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle during the Los Angeles premiere of Weinstein Co.’s new action movie “No Escape” on Monday at L.A. Live. “They said, ‘You bring the dad from “Marley and Me” and we’ll bring the turmoil in Southeast Asia.'”

In the film, Wilson stars as an ordinary father who moves his wife and two daughters to Thailand only to get caught in the middle of a violent political uprising.

As a comic actor, Wilson said that leading a thriller was a matter of tapping into authenticity. “I just think it was a character that I could imagine myself playing who wasn’t doing unbelievable action movie stuff,” he said. “It was all grounded in a reality and motivated by the stuff that you would genuinely (feel) — that primal stuff when your kids are in danger. »
