I was excited to watch No Escape I like Owen Wilson and the trailer looked amazing.  The movie is not what I expected. It was a B movie (what I call low budget) although it somewhat kept my attention it is not an action packed edge of the seat movie.

It's a totally predictable movie but at some point I didn't even care to guess what would happen next. It made no difference to me.

I would give it a 2 out of 5 stars and recommend waiting until it comes out on DVD. It's not a rush to watch type of movie.
