Movie Review: "No Escape"

There are movies that are not for the faint of heart, and director John Erick Dowdle's No Escape is one such movie.  In it, an against type Owen Wilson portrays a husband and father who has to move his family to a never named Asian country for work, on the eve of a massive political coo where rebels are killing Americans in the streets.  The whole movie is simply about Wilson trying to get his wife and two daughters safely out of the country, which is no easy task.  Dowdle really portrays everything in a very realistic fashion that has you gripping your arm rests the entire length of the film.  It's the fact that things like this are actually happening out in the world now, that makes this perhaps the most terrifying movie I have seen in a long time.  With that said, it is an exceptional film that should be seen if you feel your nerves can take it, because it's a great drama about a man who will protect his family at all costs.

I give No Escape a 9 out of 10!
