No Escape (2015)
Genre: Action, Thriller
This film had been recommended to me plenty of times and I can say they were not wrong to do so 😛 . This film hits all you except from an action movie and more 🙂 ! There are plenty of action scenes and it does not let you sit easily. Too many times I was shocked and on the edge of my seat! Owen Wilson is pretty awesome as the main character (Jack Dwyer) and shows that he can act serious as well (not just comedy roles 😛 ). His supporting cast of Lake Bell (Annie Dwyer) and Pierce Brosnan (Hammond) were also great. The beginning scene was done quite well as it set up the situation efficiently, entertaining and kept you captivated 🙂 . Even, when we have to learn where the main characters are we are desperate to see when the situation will hit them. Personally, during that wait (when we get to know the “important” characters) was a little too long and not the most entertaining. Plus the ending could be seen as a tad cheesy and doesn’t live up to the scenes we had just witnessed. However, when we did see the action they did not lose their initial level of tension 🙂 . My favourite scene was when they have to jump to the next building (I won’t say no more as I don’t to spoil 😛 ). Plus, the constant death and uncertainty throughout was good. Not knowing if anyone was going to survive worked in the film’s favour 🙂 . It began well, has some shocking deaths and shocking moments (one near the end with the daughter) and ended cool 🙂 . As mentioned before, the end is kind of cheesy but the scene with boat (trying not to spoil) was very tense and awesome 😀 . This is a very good movie that may not be the most action packed but when the big scenes actually happen it makes it worth the watch 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
