Looking for an action-packed thriller to bring some excitement into your week? Netflix recently started offering an intense (not-so-new) film starring Pierce Brosnan and Owen Wilson.

Called No Escape, the 2015 flick follows an American family that relocates to Southeast Asia and finds themselves in the midst of a violent coup that has them fighting for their lives. The movie is currently ranked number eight on the streaming platform’s top ten most popular movies list. And after watching the trailer, we aren’t exaggerating when we say the film is pure action. Exploding helicopters! Fires! A violent war! Literally, there’s too much to unpack.

Watch the full teaser below and you’ll see what we mean.

The film’s official synopsis reads, “No Escape centers on an American businessman (Wilson) as he and his family settle into their new home in Southeast Asia. Suddenly finding themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, they must frantically look for a safe escape as rebels mercilessly attack the city and execute any foreigners in their path.”

In addition to Brosnan and Wilson, the film also stars Lake Bell (No Strings Attached), Sterling Jerins (World War Z), Claire Geare (Inception) and Sahajak Boonthanakit (The Beach). 

While the flick didn’t receive rave reviews from critics (it scored a 47 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), it did manage to rake in an impressive audience score of 62 percent. 

Maybe we'll save this one for a rainy day.
