Yet another comedy staple (Owen Wilson) takes the action route, as an American businessman who moves his family to an unnamed, poor country in Southeast Asia. Their first day turns into a nightmare when a violent political uprising imperils their lives. Wilson effectively plays a regular guy (and sweet father), who fights back without becoming an action hero. Director John Erick Dowdle has managed to keep each encounter and every chase tightly wound, although he and his brother (Drew) have forced the script’s logic into some pretty tight corners. If you’re willing to accept the highly improbable situations that keep piling up, you’re in for a tense and often riveting ride.
