THE YEAR IS 2022. IN THE PRISON OF THE FUTURE ESPACE IS IMPOSSIBLE. SURVIVAL ISN’T MUCH EASIER.
The Year is 2022. John Robbins (Ray Liotta, Goodfellas), a former Marine Captain, has been sentenced for assassinating his commanding officer and is banished to a secret and remote prison island run by The Warden (Michael Lerner, Eight Men Out). In this prison of the future, inhabited by society's most violent and feared criminals, Robbins is left to the mercy of the elements and his fellow man. He finds the island divided into two camps: The Outsiders, led by the brutal and bloodthirsty Marek (Stuart Wilson, Lethal Weapon 3); and The Insiders, led by the strong-willed, benevolent Father (Lance Henriksen, Aliens) and his followers Hankins (Ernie Hudson, Ghostbusters) and Casey (Kevin Dillon, Entourage). Robbins doesn't care to join either - his one aim is to break free of an island from which there is no escape. To aid him, he steals a powerful and destructive weapon from The Outsiders, sparking off a major war between the two encampments. Now bloody battle and the brutality of hand-to-hand combat will take many lives before Robbins can think of freedom again. Trapped on an island where nature can be as deadly as man, there is only one thought which keeps Robbins alive... escape...escape...escape.

Captain J.T. Robbins (the late Ray Liotta) ends up put in prison for life after he murders his CO. His CO had his men commit atrocities in Benghazi. He ends up on an unofficial isolated private prison island where the prisoners have no guards and have to survive on their own. There are two groups-the Outsiders led by Marek (Wilson) and the Insiders led by “the Father” (Lance Hendrickson) Cindy’s rly at war. Robbins must choose a side if he wants to escape the island. Liotta makes a great action lead.
The film is flawed but still terrifically entertaining. Unearthed films uses a new 4K scan of the original negative for the film. The film has had extensively clean up and looks and sounds marvelous. I’ve seen some comments on the sound dropping out at the conclusion but I didn’t experience that with the original stereo mix and the 5.1 sounded fine to me. Perhaps it’s dependent on the player.
Ballyhoo Pictures provide the extras. They include audio interview featurettes with producer Gale Anne Hurd, director Martin Campbell, writer Joel Gross and an archival featurette (about 28 minutes). The alternate opening title card and a short original featurette from the time of production. A promotional gallery and trailers round out the special features.
‘No Escape” remains a entertaining science fiction film about a future prison. Unearthed has done a fine job of<presenting this. While it is also available in 4K from Germany, I’ve heard it is an upscale of this the same 2K presentation here.

Some of the other reviews have stated that the audio cuts in and out, but they don't state if its they have the blu-ray, or the DVD. The DVD has a known audio issue that causes audio drops, and a replacement program by the manufacturer is in the works. The blu-ray is fine.
