"Escape in the Sun" is just an average adventure film of the fifties. Most of its charm is made by the nice location in eastern Africa, where the film takes place. It has not too much, but enough of suspense. It's not really thrilling, so if you expect something like that, you should not see this film. The characters are a bit easy drawn, you could have some problems to become friends with them. Each of them are, in their way, understandable, but nowadays of course could seem a bit "antique".
I recommend to see the film with some distance - don't expect a masterpiece. But if you expect a solid, typical fifties British adventure movie, with a lot of Africa and safari flair, the film will entertain you.
