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!

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.

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".

This is what movies are about to me.All action,good guys and bad guys,duking it out with no women to slow the plot down whatsoever.I mean it,not a single female character is seen in the whole film.There is mention of one,when Ray Liotta's lead character refers to 'sleeping with the owner' of his majorly destructive weapon,but that's all.Everything else is just complete perfection.Superb action,great director Martin Campbell who went on to direct the James Bond film Goldeneye and Vertical Limit,a wonderful leading man in the kind of unappreciated Liotta,and all done at a length that stretches out to just under 2 hours,adding a sense of completion and of full potential being reached.This was briskly followed by the almost equally good Christopher Lambert Sci-Fi/Actioner Fortress,and it might be a good idea to watch both films as a double bill one night as they are both brilliant Sci-Fi/Action prison movies.But this one's slightly better because unlike Fortress,it's an entirely boy's own flick.

This is an action adventure that pays much homage to all the other action adventure films that came before it. And there lies its problem. This is a futuristic tale of a Marine officer sentenced to life in a maximum security prison (actually ending up on an island with warring "tribes" of convicts) for murdering his commander. Of course you get the obligatory evil warden, along with the obligatory "really-bad bad guys" and the "not-so-bad bad guys" (straight out of the Mad Max ROAD WARRIOR movie). Not to stop there, you also get the obligatory hero with a guilty conscience, along with a young man who is in awe of our hero, and we can't leave out the obligatory traitor in the midst. I'd also be remiss for not mentioning the obligatory father figure who leads the "not-so-bad guys", and of course there is always the tough, second in command, but gee whiz, who's counting.
The really sad thing about all this is, the movie turned out to be pretty darn good in spite of itself. Ray Liotta plays the exiled Captain, and his performance is very intense and believable. Stewart Wilson plays Marek, the leader of the "really-bad bad guys" and has some of the best comic dialogue and one-liners in the film (ala Alan Rickman of DIE HARD fame). Those two performances are memorable, but alas, it's just not enough to carry the film for its full length. The actions scenes also vary. Some are appropriately intense and done well enough, but some are just...well...obligatory.
Between 1 and 10, I give "No Escape" a solid 5. Had the script writers dared to be a little different, this could have been a very entertaining movie. As it turned out, it was just okay. Enough to fill in a dull afternoon or a sleepless evening, but in the end, you may feel as I did. Cheated.
