Watch while in theaters! Adib Abdel Kareem (Siddig) had made the perfect life for himself in Toronto: beautiful wife, two grown daughters, great job. He is a confident man, at ease in any setting - his Syrian background betrayed only by a slight accent and his daughters’ names, Muna and Leila. Adib is a man who has successfully built a life from scratch – a man who had left his past behind. Until his daughter, Muna, disappears in Damascus and his past catches up to him all at once. Twenty-five years ago, Adib, a promising young officer in the Syrian military police, suddenly left Damascus under suspicious circumstances. He left his entire life behind, including the love of his life, Fatima (Tomei). He made his way to Canada and wiped the slate clean. He never told anyone about his past. In order to find his daughter, he must confront the past that he left behind. INESCAPABLE is both a tense mystery and a character drama held together by the universal theme of undying and uncompromising love between a father and a daughter.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A Canadian nonthriller that plays like a heavily sedated hybrid of "Taken" and "Not Without My Daughter" ...
Rotten: One hopes "Inescapable" is only a momentary stumble for this promising filmmaker.
Rotten: Inescapable isn't a terrible movie, but absent its ripped-from-the-headlines setting it's unremarkable.
Rotten: Inescapable is Nadda's first foray into thriller territory, and her inexperience shows in awkwardly mounted fight scenes and clumsy car chases, not to mention an almost fatally explanatory script.
Ok so Alexander Siddig is no Liam Neeson but this one is better and makes more sense than TAKEN2 - locations are fantastic and MarisaTomei's presence elevates everything. Definitely worth a look!
Ok..but not worth for money..
Very slow movie..not fast
Well done thriller!
Inescapable was mesmerizing. I thoroughly enjoyed the even-pace, the lack of gruesome imagery, and the wonderful Marissa Tomei. I thought the movie was well written and look forward to watching another.
