Storyline

Husband and wife doctors Paul and Kim Jordan need a drastic change. Distraught by the inexplicable death of their baby, Paul (C. Thomas Howell) convinces Kim to abandon their American lives and join a medical mission in Thailand. It seems to be just the distraction they need, until the day Paul is kidnapped by human traffickers who need a surgeon to operate on their wounded leader. Kim is left alone in a strange country, trying desperately to find her husband with no proof of what happened. While captive on the gangs' secluded island, Paul is caged with Malcolm Andrews (John Rhys-Davies), an Englishman being held for ransom. With nothing to do but talk, the two men quickly clash over philosophy, as Malcolm relies on a bold faith in God and Paul believes no god would allow these evils to happen in the world. Paul takes another hit when he finds his patient's condition much worse than he can handle on his own in such primitive conditions. With his value to the criminals plummeting, the ...

Interesting and quite decent movie
16 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While it could have been better and wasn't a great movie, Escape does have a fair bit to like. Escape's far from perfect, it does raise some very intriguing questions that did encourage some thought but too many of these questions are not resolved very adequately. The spiritual/Christianity aspect on the most part is thought-provoking and powerful but it can be laid on a little too thick as well sometimes, not to the extent that it was religious propaganda but it was a touch heavy-handed in places. The story mostly works but does have a rather predictable and cliché-ridden ending and can be too reliant on coincidence. And Anora Lynn's performance is stiff and lacking in emotion.

In the acting stakes however, John Rhys Davies and C. Thomas Howell do fare far better, Davies is lots of fun and does bring a dignity to his part while Howell gives one of, in recent years that is, his better performances(his character's anguish comes across very movingly) in one of his better movies(again in recent years, after doing a lot of very bad movies that made him look like a bad actor when actually he has shown he can be good when with good material). The villains are quite scary too. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and complimented by photography that looks like a lot of effort went into it. The music is stirring not once losing pulse or overbearing the drama or the dialogue. The dialogue is audible at least and is actually worth listening to, it does make sense and does stir some suspense and emotion without getting too overwrought. The story is imperfect of course but it had a good idea to start with and at its best it's emotionally charged and suspenseful with appropriately measured pacing and decent action. The direction is efficient enough and the characters while not fully developed are likable enough as well. The message is well-intended and while not exactly subtle it does make its point.

In conclusion, Escape does fall short of being great but it held my interest and was a decent movie. 6/10 Bethany Cox
