Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that No Escape is a thriller about an American family that comes under fire in an unnamed foreign country. Some viewers might be interested in it as a "turn off your brain" roller coaster ride, but its blatant xenophobia makes it difficult to recommend. Plus, there's a lot of strong violence, including a scene of a woman being beaten and nearly raped. Children are in peril, and dozens of people are shot and killed, with blood spurts, bloody wounds, and pools of blood, plus beatings and explosions. Language is infrequent but includes more than one use of "f--k" and "s--t." There's a mention of a strip joint and a scene that takes place in what appears to be a brothel. Characters smoke and drink in a social setting, with some playful drunkenness, and an opium den is briefly shown.

Sexual Content

Reference to "hitting a strip joint," with joking innuendo. Scene set in what appears to be a brothel.

Violence

A woman is beaten and nearly raped (her clothes are torn). Many characters are shot, with blood splatters, bleeding wounds, and pools of blood. Children are thrown from a roof (with the intention of being caught). A man is beaten to death with a blunt object. Dead bodies are shown. Suicide. An angry mob beats people with rocks, sticks. Helicopter crash and explosion. Tank shells explode. Truck runs over people. Much of the violence occurs in front of children.

Language

A few uses of "f--k" and "s--t," plus "bastard," "goddamn."

Social Behavior

The movie's xenophobic message seems to be "don't go to any foreign countries, and don't trust anyone who's not American (or white)." After the bad guys start attacking, the good guy can -- and does -- do anything to survive, without consequences.

Consumerism

The main character wears Nike shoes. He later trades them for something he needs.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters smoke and drink (beer and whisky shots) in a social setting, getting playfully drunk in one scene. Opium smokers shown in passing.
