A joyless exercise in prevailing generality. Full Review

The movie could just as well be set in Islamabad, Nairobi or any city Westerners find threatening. (It was filmed, in fact, in Johannesburg.) It would look about right on a cable channel at 9 p.m. Full Review

Rating: C -- Doesn't have the juice normally associated with such violent entertainment. Its interest in characterization is admirable, but there's little firepower where it counts the most. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- One hopes "Inescapable" is only a momentary stumble for this promising filmmaker. Full Review

Clearly meaning Inescapable as an act of love, Ms. Nada, a Canadian filmmaker with Syrian/Palestinian parents, has instead done a great disservice to her gene pool and our film-loving sensibilities. Irksome would be a more appropriate title. Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- Muddled and inert despite the best intentions, this inescapably dull thriller plays like a Middle Eastern take on Liam Neeson's "Taken." Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- The movie suffers from the conflict between its potboiler instincts and the filmmaker's understandable need to acknowledge the brutality of Syria's secretive regime. Full Review

Product Description:

A Syrian expatriate in Canada learns that his daughter has gone missing in Damascus, and returns to his home country for the first time in 20 years to find her in this thriller from writer/director Ruba Nadda (CAIRO TIME, SABAH). January, 2011: As the Tunisian government crumbles, protestors fill the streets of Cairo. Meanwhile, in Canada, successful Syrian emigrant Adib Abdul-Kareem (Alexander Siddig) receives word that his daughter Muna has vanished while traveling through Damascus. Left with no choice but to return to Syria and follow every lead he has, Abdul-Kareem enlists the aid of Fatima (Marisa Tomei), his long-lost love, and a Canadian embassy official (Joshua Jackson) in locating Muna at all costs. But by the time Abdul-Kareem realizes that the official may be acting on his own agenda, it may already be too late for both the desperate father, and the daughter who disappeared without a trace.
