Tense Thriller
20 December 2015 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The American engineer Jack Dwyer (Owen Wilson) is expatriated to Southeast Asia to work in the water plant of his company. He travels with his wife Annie (Lake Bell) and their daughters Lucy and Beeze and befriends the English Hammond (Pierce Brosnan) at the airport. Nobody from his company comes to take Jack and his family to the hotel and he accepts the ride offered by Hammond with his local friend Kenny Rogers (Sahajak Boonthanakit). Soon Jack notes that the television, telephone, Internet and cellular do not work and the front desk explains that they are facing problems. On the next morning, Jack walks to the market to buy a newspaper, he discovers that there is a revolution in the country and the rebels are executing foreigners. Now his only hope is to reach the American Embassy with his family. But the rebels are everywhere and Jack does not speak or read the language of the country.

"No Escape" is an extremely tense thriller with a great storyline of an expatriated family that are surprised by a rebellion in the country where they have just moved. The tension is intense and the viewer that has been expatriated along his professional life will probably be more impressive with this film. The cast has wonderful performances and it is easy to understand the reaction of the annoying Lucy if the viewer is a father or mother. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Horas de Desespero ("Desperate Hours")
