“No Escape, No Return” is a fairly unique entry into the subgenre of police-themed action-thrillers, and it is worth checking out despite my average rating. This well-written adventure is engaged in a fight with producers trying to shoehorn it into the form of a throwaway adrenaline piece. Concessions appear to have been made that result in some sloppily-presented scenes and heavy-handed drama, but you’re still looking at an interesting and engaging alternative to the usual PM cop fare.

The story: Three police officers – played by Dustin Nguyen (21 Jump Street), Denise Loveday (Phantasmagoria: A Puzzle of Flesh), and Maxwell Caulfield (The Colbys) – are targeted for internal sabotage after interfering in the plans of a drug baron (Kevin Benton, White Men Can't Jump).

The movie’s strengths begin with its three leads, who do collectively well with their roles. The film gives Maxwell Caulfield top billing, but this is in fact one of the few times wherein all three of a movie’s leads play equally prominent characters. Too much of their background and motivations are revealed via exposition and the strongest of their dramatic scenes are mucked about with attention-pleading editing, but the performers seem to genuinely feel their roles and have a natural chemistry that make their relationships believable.

For this uninvolving action piece, the director's eye is more upon pyrotechnic effects and stunt work rather than narrative flow, and following upon its violent opening minutes, the work simply skids into predictability, a viewer being able to foretell even the details of dialogue. The setting is Los Angeles, where this movie is filmed, its plot relating of three members of the Los Angeles Police Department, assigned to an undercover narcotics detail, during which deadly complications occur, as a DEA operative and two uniformed officers are killed, this while a very large amount of drug sale money disappears, about which none involved appears to have any knowledge. The three surviving undercover officers are subsequently under suspicion, leading to a Department personnel investigation that alleges they are secreting the missing cash, whereupon the trio become fugitives as they attempt to discover who is answerable for the aborted operation. The police official heading the investigation, Captain Mitchell (John Saxon), and a sergeant working under him, Dante, played by Michael Nouri, are aware that the longer the renegades are on the lam, the more serious their situation will become, yet the officers remain in hiding, although each alienates the others during the course of their search for the elusive drug dealer. Any possible inner aspects of the officers (Maxwell Caulfield, Dustin Nguyen, Denise Loveday) are neglected while they behave as rampaging steamrollers while seeking the narcotics kingpin. An additional matter of significance appears from within the Department, as a possibility exists that a police official is linked with the Forces of Evil.Read more ›
