No Escape is an all around entertaining film perfect for a Saturday movie night. No, it doesn’t make you think or have any profound performances but the acting isn’t bad with Owen Wilson serving as a fine everyman type of character and Pierce Brosnan in his small part is a lot of fun.

This is a no-brainer and blind-buy if you haven’t seen it, purchase especially if you already own the first two movies.
