Format:Blu-ray
I wasn't really sure what to anticipate from the Norwegian film "Escape." The marketing artwork, packaging and description make it seem like this might be a cheesy kid's adventure film. So I strapped in and hoped for the best. And as is often the case with relatively low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised. There isn't a whole lot of plot in this spare 80 minute film, but the action sequences were well executed and the movie held my interest throughout. The title really explains the entire film premise. It's about an escape with not much back story or explanation either before or after the event. By keeping things simple and straightforward, however, the movie succeeds in telling a concise little story. It may not be a great movie, but it is entertaining. The DVD/Blu-ray has the option of an English dubbed soundtrack, but I watched the film with subtitles. I can't, therefore, comment on the quality of the dub which is oftentimes distracting and annoying to my personal taste.

The movie is set ten years after the Black Death has decimated the population. A lone family traveling the desolate countryside is attacked by a gang of outlaws. After the bloody encounter, the teenaged daughter is taken back to the savage's camp and kept as a prisoner. She forms a tentative bond with another young girl, but her fate seems all but sealed unless she can take matters into her own hands. What must she do? She must escape, you guessed it. Never mind where she's going, she has to assert independence, courage, and ingenuity if she plans to survive this ordeal. Most of the movie has our hero on the run, and her pursuers following closely. That's about it!

The look of "Escape" is quite impressive. The scenery is spectacular and the action sequences are well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of those diamonds in the rough June 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I usually don't bother writing reviews, but I do like to leave at least some feedback when I come across that rare budget movie that actually turns out to be fairly good. Well, this is one of those diamonds in the rough even though the plot was simple. The acting was good, and the script was well written. I was pleasantly surprised :) Sorry for the simple review, but again I don't usually care to write reviews.

Cheers!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Hidden Gem June 10, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
It's not the best cinematography ever, it is a foreign language film with English subtitles. A very good story, actors were good (especially the two young lasses).
I'm surprised to find this gem hidden back on page one hundred something. It should be up front, at least ahead of "I spit on your grave" & "Godzilla vs Megagodzilla"
Hunger Games, Hanna type movie, action, drama. Dagmar is Hawtt! In a Johnny Winter sort of way.

Like the way they film this. It is not as action packed as Pathfinder the older version but has that feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps you cheering and on the edge of your seat July 7, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I liked the way the director and writers kept the movie reasonably credible - once you got past the absurdity of a warrior woman with no warrior upbringing (it takes years of practice from a young age to develop the martial skills she was displaying) ruling over the men around her. I liked the fact that the older farm girl does what can be expected and that when she wins she does so believably; she doesn't suddenly possess magical skills nor does fate intervene like winning the lottery. Her character, courage and determination win out. More like a 3.5 movie than a 4 but still enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed it very much June 29, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The picture on the website is misleading, probably trying to draw comparisons to Centurion. At least they both show the antagonists.

The story was well told and the action believable for a young girl to be able to accomplish. It is a very beautiful country and the scenes are gorgeous.

The movie has sub-titles so if you are someone who finds it hard to follow a movie and read at the same time, you might want to stay away.

Nothing tremendously bloody except for one head wound, but he totally deserved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars moving, brutal, tender July 19, 2013

A spare but enthralling story set in plague times in Scandenavia. Unflinchingly brutal and suspenceful but also moving and tender. Very well acted throughout - one of the best movies Ive seen in some time.
