NO ESCAPE, NO RETURN is a fairly unique entry into the subgenre of
police-themed action-thrillers, and it is worth checking out despite my
average rating. This well-written adventure is engaged in a fight with
producers trying to shoehorn it into the form of a throwaway adrenaline
piece. Concessions appear to have been made that result in some
sloppily-presented scenes and heavy-handed drama, but you're still
looking at an interesting and engaging alternative to the usual PM cop
The story: Three police officers played by Dustin Nguyen, Denise
Loveday, and Maxwell Caulfield are targeted for internal sabotage
after interfering in the plans of a drug baron.
The movie's strengths begin with its three leads, who do collectively
well with their roles. The film gives Maxwell Caulfield top billing,
but this is in fact one of the few times wherein all three of a movie's
leads play equally prominent characters. Too much of their background
and motivations are revealed via exposition and the strongest of their
dramatic scenes are mucked about with attention-pleading editing, but
the performers seem to genuinely feel their roles and have a natural
chemistry that make their relationships believable. Additionally, the
extended storyline is equal to these characters for its
unconventionality. The plot against the characters begins as an
assassination attempt but morphs into a cerebral attack, leading to the
stars making some genuinely surprising decisions throughout the film.
The action is a solid mix of shooting, fighting, and explosions. It's
not the best stuff ever, but a little more of it would have bolstered
my rating. Some of the gunfights are nice, and the PM studio lives up
to its reputation by including a couple of cool car crashes, but the
clear star of the action scene is Dustin Nguyen. Nguyen is choosy when
it comes to his action roles, supposedly having turned down films for
years to avoid being typecast as a karate man, and a feature like this
makes you value the parts wherein he does demonstrate his aptitude for
the martial arts. He leads four of the five fights, and while I would
have given a lot to see him take on some credible opponents, it's a
thrill to see him cut loose, particularly in the three-on-one brawl.
Problems with the jumpy pacing occasionally give the feature an oddly
experimental vibe, and its passive justification of police brutality
rings particularly foul nowadays. Nevertheless, for all its faults, the
movie is entertaining in more than a mindless way. It would be great if
writer-director Charles Kanganis' screenplay had instead been filmed by
someone like Dwight Little, but even in its current state, I recommend
this one for viewing by action fans.
