Day 21. No Escape (2015). Directed by John Erick Dowdle.

No Escape (2015) score: 59%

Everything is extreme in No Escape. Everything. Not a single thing is understated or subtle. While this does reduce the plausability of the potentially realistic events of the film, the conviction in the performances made me keen to finish watching it to make sure Owen Wilson and his family survived.

And despite the crass and disparaging generalisations the film makes of its fictional Thailand-like Asian country and its people, I can’t deny that No Escape is one very exciting film with a commitment to keeping the momentum up to unbearably tense levels. You just need to turn your brain off.
