Here's my movie review and commentary about No Escape, 2015 with Luke Wilson, Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell.
First the trailer if you haven't seen it yet. It's actually a great trailer. Just enough to get you hooked and give you a sense of the story but not too revealing.
This was a really intense movie. I would give it a high 6/10 or maybe 7/10 rating. The acting is fine, I even like Wilson in this.
But there is no comedy here. This is a serious, adrenaline pumping thriller. There were at least a few scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat.
Pierce does a great job too as a political corporate mercenary role that saves the day a few times before he meets his demise
You see one of the scenes in the trailer for a moment. Yes, tossing the little girl in the air. Wait until you see the full thing. #OMG
It's not necessarily a masterpiece, but it's better than a textbook thriller. The storyline is plausible and the intense action makes up for some of the plot holes. It is violent and gory but I think only as much as it needs to be.
Would I recommend you watch it? Sure. If you like action, escapes, shooting, political turmoil and don't mind some intense violence and civil war-like situations then yes, you must watch this. Is it going to win an Oscar? probably not but it will probably be on Netflix within 6 months.
