The dialogue between the two leads and Guy Pearce's pleasant performance make this sci-di drama worth seeing.

Audience Reviews for Lockout

Not a great movie, but interesting and fun enough to watch.

I see this Euro sci-fi-action brought Guy Pearce shifting into action-man mode.
Action specialist and co-writer/producer Luc Besson has fashioned another slick thriller - with a twist of sci-fi - to rank alongside this Transporter franchise; while a buff Pearce does his best in a role more suited to Jason Statham. Fans of John Carpenter's Escape from New York will immediately recognise the premise although its safe to say that Snow is no Snake Plissken!
Maggie Grace is as good as ever as the damsel in distress and the supporting actors do a bang up job as well. Guess what this is one of three Grace-Besson films including Taken sequels.

Lockout is a surprisingly good indie science fiction film that delivers a thrilling adventure. Though it claims to be based on an original concept, it's really just Escape from L.A. in space: the president's daughter is trapped on a prison space station and an ex-CIA operative is sent in to rescue her. Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace and Peter Stormare form a solid cast that deliver surprisingly good performances. Pearce and Grace work well together, and Pearce's character of Snow is charismatic and fun (in that cheesy, B-movie kind of way). The special effects are weak is some areas and the characters aren't fleshed out, but Lockout delivers an intense, riveting adventure.

Luc Besson is the Writer/Director of The Fifth Element and Taken. Usually when you sit down to watch one of his films, you're in for a treat. When he said he was making a new film that combined elements of both popular movies, I was excited, and then sorely disappointed. Lockout introduces us to a new kind of a prison, one that is in outer space, and holds it's prisoners in cryogenic stasis. The daughter of the U.S. President (Maggie Grace) was set to tour the facility, to make sure the prisoners are being treated fairly, when all hell breaks loose. Wanting to restore order with a minimal amount of casualties, the President sends in one man, his best C.I.A. operative, Snow (Guy Pearce), whose job it is to save the hostages. For starters this film is so full of cliques and references to other things that it almost becomes a farce of itself. Guy Pearce is the star and he was very good, however his character plays like John McClain in Outer Space. Snow is full of jokes and is this huge tough guy, who was almost a mirror image of Bruce Willis in Die Hard. The only thing missing was a catch phrase and lets all be thankful for that. Pearce is paired with Maggie Grace, who as in Taken, finds herself as a hostage once again. To her credit, she was a lot less whiny than in Taken and even fights back a little bit, but she basically played the same character that she always does. I don't know about you, but I have a hard time feeling sorry for a beautiful spoiled blonde girl who gets into trouble because she traveled to Europe or had to take on the cause of prisoners rights. Overall, there was a lot of action, but not much of a story to play on. Guy Pearce does a pretty good job, but Lockout is honestly a predictable, paper thin story, with special effects that aren't anything to write home about. It's another big budget film that tries to wow audiences with a unique setting and lots of explosions in the previews, but the only surprise here is that the usually reliable Luc Besson fails to deliver a worthwhile film.
