Really Disappointing And Crappy Trailer for ‘Inescapable’ Starring Alexander Siddig, Marisa Tomei and Joshua Jackson
I was actually looking forward to seeing Inescapable when it was announced as the one of the films in the Special Presentations Programme for the Toronto International Film Festival. Being a huge fan of its star Alexander Siddig, it definitely got my attention. The rest of the cast is pretty great led by Marisa Tomei and Joshua Jackson and it is with this excitement that I was eager to check out the trailer that recently dropped.
Man does this look bad. It looks like the movie is basically a made-for-TV retread of the Liam Neeson starring Taken. I feel so bad for Siddig as it seems that he is putting in a valiant effort.
On the bright side, Alliance Films is distributing it up here so the chance of a lot of folks seeing it is low. That is great for the people involved in the film because this just looks really bad.
