Critic Reviews for No Escape (Escape from Absolom)
A synthetic pastiche of sci-fi, action movies (borrowing feely from the superior Mad Max movies), and routine prison drama that's a sensless, incoherent mishmash that even a reliable pro like Liota cannot salavage.
A throwback to the energetic sci-fi films of yesteryear. Frantic and Fun.
A watchable futuristic prison flick. Decent B-movie thrills.
Martin Campbell's generally an underrated action director, but this is just okay, not one of his finer efforts
Audience Reviews for No Escape (Escape from Absolom)
This came out the same time as Fortress, the later is a much better film but this works as a modern B-movie action film.More
Fun, action packed 90's movie that was overlooked and under appreciated. The story is about a highly decorated Army cadet who assassinates his general officer for moralistic reasons. His punishment is life in prison on a deserted island called "Absolom" where the deadliest of prisoners are forced to live in a brutal society controlled by vicious warlords. The graphics, for the time, were good. Ray Liotta puts in a great performance, which is something I don't usually find myself saying too often.
This movie pales in comparison to current eye candy blockbuster action movies, but this is still a great 90's action movie that you should check out.
