5.0 out of 5 stars A little-known classic action flick! Dec 14 2002
Format:DVD
What a cool movie! I didn't think much of "No Escape" when it hit theaters, and didn't pay any attention to it until seeing on TV one night when nothing else was on. What a surprise! This is a great action flick, just alot of fun to watch. It's a great DVD to watch with a bunch of your buddies, heck, even my wife loved it.
Ray Liotta stars as a former marine with a hidden, dark past, so dark in fact, that he kills his commanding officer and is sentenced to life on a tropical prison island filled with rival gangs. He lands in the bad section of town first, dukes it out with the baddies, and ends up with the civilized tribe, becoming a leader & inspiration for them to fight for what they have and to get off the island. Pretty standard plot, but the action is fast-paced, there's plenty of it, and the actors really shine.
Liotta does a stand-up job as our hero, Lance Henrikson is very good as The Father, and the supporting cast turn in admirable performances as well. But the true reason to see this film is the absolute tour de force performance of Stuart Wilson as the arch-villain Marek. Never have I seen an actor deliver a better mix of humor & nastiness; he's completely brilliant here. Wilson pulls off the best antagonist I've ever seen in an action flick. I guarantee you'll enjoy the movie for, if nothing else, Wilson's performance alone. His work here is a must-see for any action fan.
A good cast, a phenomenal villain, and a load of fun; that sums up "No Escape". Don't let this underrated action film slip by you. It's so much better than the typical Stallone/Schwarzenegger action movie, and Wilson's brilliant performance must be seen. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting 20 years to find! Sept. 9 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Last time I saw this movie I was in University and I watched it 3 times over the 2 day rental period. Been looking for it ever since but couldn't find it. Ray Liotta kicks butt in this "Lord of the Flies" wanna-be. Tons of action, some funny lines and the inexplicable desire to know what it's like in prison.... and this prison's on an island! Sweet.

Good movie for guys. About men put on a prison island and left to their own devices, having to adapt and do whatever they have to to survive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull and Uncreative Sept. 30 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Unimpressive film with a rather predictable plot. Ray Liotta has been wrongly convicted of a crime and is sent to an island-prison colony divided into two camps: unreformable criminals and reformed, peace-seeking, criminals. It is evident by Ray Liotta's character and his predicament that this is a good guy vs. bad guys movie. The dialogue is, for the most part weak, and the film is too long. For a movie of this sort, I would recommend watching "Escape from New York" or "Running Man" instead: they're shorter, have better stories, and better actors all together.

By Lucas
Format:DVD
Excelente film, con actuacion de calidad como suele ofrecer Ray Liotta.
Solido guion, apropiada banda sonora e inmejorable fotografia, hacen que esta pelicula atrape de comienzo a fin.
Vean este pelicula para dar cuenta de cuantas otras son burdas copias.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Escape from terrible dialouge Feb. 23 2003
Format:DVD
This movie was just stupid. While I think the whole concept of the movie is creative and had potential, that hope shattered about three minutes into the movie. I loved Ray Liotta in "Goodfellas", but his descendance into bottomless pits such as "Copland", "Operation Dumbo Drop", and now this...lead me to question whether or not Liotta has some real-life serious debts to the Mafia for which he urgently needs quick cash to pay off, and is willing to sacrifice his professional credibility to save his kneecaps.
I struggled to stifle my yawns as Liotta sheds forced tears for all the women and children he bombed in some former war, and my indifference grew by the nanosecond as the special effects (so called) of that bombing frightfully paralleled those of "Battlefield Earth".
The evil warlord is, like in "The Postman", some washed up, over the hill, unshaven hippie whom everybody is terrified of. As he pits Liotta, a veteran special forces commando, against a fellow tribesman in a fighting pit, he threatens them both to start fighting before he "jumps in there and kills them both". So these two men, one a young man and the other the special forces soldier, instantly take to each other's throats to avoid the wrath of this crusty old prune.
When the warlord and his men storm the peaceful villiage and find it empty, Liotta pops up from a watchtower and screams the devastatingly-insulting, ego-shattering, insomnia-inducing war cry, "You want it? Come and get it!" Oooooh. The teeth-gritting warlord, so furiously enraged by this terrible, unbearable taunt, attacks with full force and, of course, loses. Liotta pulls an RPG out of the sky and uses it to blow them all away.
Two stars for potential plot and my thread-lingering respect for Liotta. Minus five stars for this mangling of "Lord of the Flies With Assault Weapons and Air Strikes".

3.0 out of 5 stars Just fun to watch Jan. 30 2002
By Trotski
Format:VHS Tape
This is a movie to watch just for kicks. It possesses no Oscar merit, but it definately fills that warm spot in a B-movie man's soul. One must admit Lance Henrikson is definately one sci-fi/fantasy/thriller acter who is just plain interesting to observe. I just have one disturbing question about originality. Why steal the classic arena scene from Spartacus? Were we that desperate for something that demands great merit? All in all, a fun watch.
