    The initial scenes leading to the sex are ridiculously bad. Whoever wrote them did a terrible job. No 15 or 16 year old girl would talk or act that way. Those scenes are just preposterous and certainly affected my view off the rest of the film. The scenes where the mother found out and reacted were also preposterous and badly written. Again, no adult woman cuckolded like this would react in those ways.

    An interesting story in spite of the key scenes that made no sense. The actress in the lead role did a good job and was believable and likable much of the time. The 2 adult leads were pretty lightweight and their parts were quite undeveloped and 2 dimensional.

    Might be worth a trip to the cheap cineplex but not as a first run movie. And don't go for Kristen Wiig. She sleep walked her way through this one.

    A great movie. The cosmological and the human are mixed together in one long beautiful hopeful hymn to human being. The love in this movieA great movie. The cosmological and the human are mixed together in one long beautiful hopeful hymn to human being. The love in this movie felt genuine, not a mere Hollywood ingredient. Normally a movie about escaping the Earth that we have destroyed would make me sigh at the unrealism of such a vision, but that difficulty was acknowledged gracefully before the movie soared off into its exuberant flight. As in life, nothing is one dimensional, nothing is simply distant or simply close, nothing is done and dealt with. The "bad guy" is just a regular flawed man who unwittingly helps more than he ever could by being a good guy; love animates the characters' actions even when it is twisted. This is a deep and deeply moving movie that carries itself with great grace. Where it has to borrow it does so respectfully; where it has to bend realism it does so with narrative elegance and an eye on the deeper things. I'd say it's of the best science fiction movies there is. Full Review »

Finally the twists for the most part work even when they get ridiculous. B+ Full Review »

Bad movies like this don't come around often BUT then NO ESCAPE actually gets quite damn good. Another xenophobic B-movie in the tradition of TAKEN. BUT, yest another but, the whole things just falls apart and becomes an unwelcome bore. Totally bummed me out because I was really enjoying myself. Full Review »

The first half is quite lovely with Margot Robbie delivering a very genuine performance as someone who believes she is the last person left alive after a nuclear holocaust.But then two men enter the scene and the film becomes a dull love triangle with no purpose whatsoever. You'll want to go to sleep. Full Review »
