No EscapeWhen Jack finds an opportunity to move to Southeast Asia to head his water manufacturing company's new plant there, he immediately jumps at the opportunity and moves his family there. When they get there; they seem to be having problems, the electronics don't work and rarely any cars are seen in the streets. When he goes to the market the next morning, he finds himself caught in the middle of a violent rebellion headed by armed rebels executing foreigners. Jack must get back to the hotel and with the help of a mysterious British 'tourist', must get his family to the American Embassy in the midst of the chaos. But is there any escape?

Critic Reviews of "No Escape"New York Magazine/VultureDecember 30, 2015
No Escape takes the casual xenophobia of something like Taken, crossbreeds it with something altogether more noxious, then asks us to kick back and enjoy the ride. We don't. We can't. And the ride isn't that great to begin with.Village VoiceDecember 30, 2015
No Escape is as accomplished as it is vicious.GrantlandSeptember 04, 2015
No Escape is bare-bones, shameless, and too obnoxious to stay suspenseful for long.New York PostAugust 28, 2015
Writer-director John Eric Dowdle makes the street action propulsive, bewildering and terrifyingly real, and things are just getting warmed up.Wall Street JournalAugust 27, 2015
I won't make a case for No Escape being a good film; the first half is pretty good and the second half ranges from pretty bad to truly awful.Chicago ReaderAugust 27, 2015
Dowdle sticks closely to the family's perspective, for better and for worse; though fairly effective at conveying their terror, he fails to establish any sort of social or political context for the story.Washington Free BeaconJuly 14, 2016
You're unlikely to see an action-thriller this summer that is as intense as No Escape.The Straits Times (Singapore)May 24, 2016
This work manages to dehumanise an entire region while providing little entertainment value.CinemixtapeApril 15, 2016
"No Escape" plays like an "Argo" rewrite by someone who heard about "Argo" from a friend who never saw "Argo."South China Morning PostApril 06, 2016
This appalling escape movie takes racism towards Asians to an extreme not seen for many years in mainstream films.Cairo360April 05, 2016
Seems to suggest that these American lives are more valuable than anyone else's and that's a message, regardless of how unintentional, that many are becoming increasingly wary of. Political correctness aside, it's just bad filmmaking.
