Editorial Reviews

Doctors Paul and Kim Jordan are struggling to find peace in their lives after the tragic loss of their baby's life. Paul (C. Thomas Howell from The Amazing Spider Man, ET) persuades Kim to escape reality and flee to the exquisite islands of Southeast Asia. Paradise becomes a nightmare when he is kidnapped by human traffickers in need of a skilled doctor.

Faced with a fight for survival, Paul finds himself captive alongside the wealthy Malcolm Andrews (John Rhys-Davies from Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings). He quickly realizes there is no hope for his captors dying leader and is forced to examine his eternal fate. With life and death in the balance, Malcolm challenges Paul to stop running from God. Will Paul realize that trust in God is his only hope for escape and reunion with his wife?

Received a free copy of Escape with C Thomas Howell and John Rhys-Davies.
first here is what the distributers had to say:

Pure Flix has had many films over the past few years from Brother White to Encounter to Jerusalem Countdown and many more.
this film was another step up in every area.

First thing that caught my eye was the great photography. This movies production value took a giant leap in quality.

Second was the actors. From a LOTR actor in John Rhys-Davies to Pony Boy Curtis from the outsiders tthe films actors did a great job.

Finally the script was very solidly written as well.

Our main characters find themselves after a tragic loss leaving everything they have to do doctor work in the villages of Thailand.
One day a young boy comes to the clinic and Howell follows him to a so called emergency. He soon finds himself kidnapped to help some local pirates.

The story carreans from there into a suspensefil drama that is not the norm in Christian cinema.

Be sure to pick up a copy and help support GOOD christian Films!

First off, I watched the Blu-Ray and I found the production quality and acting relatively decent all things considered. This was a "Christian action" movie (even writing that seems a little odd). It kept me entertained and engaged throughout and did not bore me.

This could have been a truly great movie. Unfortunately it has a major problem with it. The main character personally witnesses no less than 4 deaths - including 3 people he really didn't want to die. That's not the problem per se (though this fact alone tells you that this movie is NOT really a "feel good" movie) - the problem is that throughout this movie with these deaths and other suffering, all these questions are raised about God's goodness, but are never really resolved. And in fact, shortly after 2 more people die, the main character finally "gives in" to God in surrender and begs him not to take his wife too - basically portraying that God was killing people to get his attention so he would surrender to Him - it portrayed a very skewed view of God IMO. This guy didn't turn to God because He heard all about Jesus' love for Him and God's kindness (i.e. it wasn't God's kindness that drew him to repentance). He turned to God out of fear of God because he was afraid that God would continue killing people close to Him. At least that's how they portrayed it. It seems to me this would make it hard for such a person to ever have any real, loving, deep, intimate relationship with God.

The film basically just gave a message that bad things happen in this world - they quoted Jesus in the book of John (though sadly didn't mention it was Jesus saying it) that talked of how in this world, we'll have tribulation but to take heart. But that's about the extent of really trying to come to grips with everything.

Even before I watched the movie for the first time knew it was going to be a good one.. Just did not know just how great it would be. One of the best movie I have seen in a long while. The film is great visually with it's shots, and locations of the film including the water shots. Both C Thomas Howell and John Rhys Davies were amazing in the movie. Escape is the best film that I have seen Davies in.

It's a Christian film, with Christian stuff at the same time in script. But yet it didn't feel like a Christian film/ a Pure Flix film. At least what I think. Blown away with the film def a must see

This is not what you'd consider to be a "landmark" film. The acting was pretty good. This would be just above a B film and would make for a a pretty good church movie night. The photography and scenery was believable. It makes for a good family film. My older teens didn't complain after it was over and their comment was "not bad".' I'd loan it out but pick a better Christian film for a gift. We own it but probably wouldn't watch it again.

I was so disappointed in this movie. My son rented it and since it was a "Christian Movie" I assumed it was going to be ok for our family but I was wrong. I would encourage you to read the longer review by Chris but my short review is simply that someone 'coming to God' at the end of a movie does not make it ok to watch violence. Especially violence that is brutal and against women. Other than a few attempts at a Christian message, the movie was mostly about the violence of human trafficking. It did create some conversations with both my teenage sons but they weren't in favor of movies such as Escape; and we'll be watching the reviews more carefully.
