Tanner Reviews No Escape

No_Escape_(2015_film)_posterSo on the opposite side of the coin, after seeing a movie that I thought was going to be bad, but turned out to be good. The next movie I saw was a movie that I thought was going to be decent, but turned out to be festering shit. That may be giving too much away on that one, but I have never been one to be the master of subtlety or waiting for the perfect moment to drop the critic bomb. But in either case, let’s talk about the strange anomaly that is No Escape. I didn’t think a movie like this could exist in this time, but I’ll be damned if I was wrong on that one.

Well I suppose you don’t have to hypothesize anymore because early this year, Olympus Has Fallen was able to deliver on your inquiries. I suppose I was destined to hate this movie. As impartial as I try to be when watching a movie I am going to review for this site, when you combine the fact that I am not a fan of Gerard Butler’s work in the slightest and also take away all originality… You pretty much are guaranteed to be on the top of the ‘Things I Can’t Stand to Sit Through’ list.
