Thrillers

No Escape (Channel 4 Fri 8 Mar 2019, Premiere)


Writer-director John Erick Dowdle’s action-thriller starring Owen Wilson, Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan. Texan water company executive Jack Dwyer (Wilson) is relocating, with his wife Annie (Bell) and his daughters Lucy (Sterling Jerins) and Beeze (Claire Geare), to work for a US conglomerate in south-east Asia.

The family arrive jetlagged at their hotel, where the internet, TV and phone are down. In the morning, Jack goes out to get a newspaper and sees clashes between the police and weapon-wielding protesters. Anti-western revolutionaries, who are angry that the water system has been handed over to a US company, have overthrown the government and murdered the prime minister.

When Jack returns to the hotel, he finds rebels rampaging through the place, killing foreigners on sight. Can he save himself and his family from the slaughter? Given the extent and fury of the uprising it seems unlikely, until a mysterious British man (Brosnan) appears on the scene.

Premiere.
Airdate: Friday 8 March 2019 at 12.40am on Channel 4.
