Perhaps it’s a sense of nostalgia, or fatigue
over the CGI-laden blockbusters being released today, but No Escape is a
perfect example of the underappreciated action films of the 1980s and ‘90s. It
may not be a masterpiece, but it is a fun and predictable bit of entertainment
with committed actors and practical effects. I would take this over a majority
of the blockbusters released in recent years.
