Who doesn’t love a good nail biting movie? A movie where you are literally sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting in anticipation for the next scene that is sure to bring a heart pounding experience. That is what I got to experience last night.
I was sitting at home and was looking through Apple TV to see what new movies were out when I spotted No Escape. I remembered seeing the preview for this movie a couple of months ago and thought it looked good! Well when I clicked on it and saw that is was a $.99 rental, I figured now was as good of a time as any!
Be prepared. This movie is an emotional roller-coaster that will leave you mentally and physically exhausted after you watch it.
No Escape was only 1 hour 45 minutes long and I can honestly say from about the 15 minute mark that I was a complete mess. My heart started racing from 15 minutes in and didn’t stop until the movie ended. Within that 1 1/2 hour time span I screamed at my TV and shed numerous tears due to the brutality and stress that these poor characters were enduring.
I am not sure if I am recommending that you should watch it or not. If you are emotionally unstable (like I am), beware. If you have children, beware. If you cry easily, beware. It was a great movie overall (in between all my crying). I will not be watching it again because I do not think I can’t put myself through that stress again, but I would still say that people should watch it. Don’t say I didn’t warn you though!
This is not the first movie that Owen Wilson has caused me extreme emotional duress with. Does anyone remember a little movie called Marley and Me? I was so upset after watching that movie that I broke the DVD and then threw it away. I think I may have just realized something. Maybe I need to stop watching Owen Wilson movies… Now that is something to cry about!
