Ray Liotta, Lance Henriksen, Stuart Wilson, Kevin Dillon, Ian McNeice, Michael, Lerner,
1994. 118 Minutes. Directed
by Martin Campbell
the director of Goldeneye. The year is 2022. A former marine captain has
been sentenced to life on a remote island prison where the most violent and
feared criminals have been secured. There is no escape ... or is there?
Unoriginal mixture between
Fortress and Mad Max as Liotta is
sent to an isolated tropical island where problem prisoners are left to their own devices.
The best moment in the
movie is when the chief bad guy declares "Gentlemen, I've eliminated the heads of
state" and then opens a bag containing the severed heads of his (former) opponents in
front of them.
For some reason the bad guys always have the better lines, but in this film
it's not difficult to see why: the good guys are a bunch of New Age wussies!
(Movie is better known as No
Escape in some countries.)
