NO ESCAPE is a thriller in which a US family relocating to South East Asia become caught in a violent coup against the ruling regime.

Violence

There are frequent scenes of strong violence in which people are shot, with resultant sight of blood, or attacked with machetes, clubs and other improvised weapons.

Threat

Scenes of strong threat occur throughout, as the protagonists are pursued by armed men. A woman is also subjected to sexual threat when a group of men rip open her shirt and hold her legs open, but another character intervenes before actual sexual violence can occur.

Language

There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k').

Characters take refuge in a building used as a brothel and opium den, with some sight of people smoking pipes and under the influence of drugs.
