What the Critics say

Cape Times
Stephen Dalton quote iconThere's no escaping this pedestrian, but modestly gripping nerve-jangler.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconWhile not perfect (the girls as tension bait, Brosnan's opportune arrivals, and the filmmakers' questionable decision of using slow motion footage from time to time all earn some demerits), I found there to be little escape from the tension and suspense in No Escape. It's a trip you might want to take if you're into such thrillers.

Tomatometer quote icon No Escape's talented cast and taut B-movie thrills are unfortunately offset by its one-dimensional characters and uncomfortably retrograde worldview.
