CJ Johnson
ABC Radio (Australia)

In this car ... an entire story is richly told, whole characters are indelibly portrayed with nuance, ambiguity, precision, foibles, heroics and devastations, and we are thoroughly engaged, carried along as by the superior mechanisms of Locke's Mercedes.

"Locke" is NOT a thrill ride. But, it is compelling.

August 29, 2014

Fabulous, mesmerising one-man movie, Tom Hardy puts in a tour de force performance [as] a man desperate not to submit to desperation.

Herald Sun (Australia)

This is not 2014's most inviting movie experience, but it will stand as one of the year's most successful movie experiments.

Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

The screenplay by writer-director Steven Knight ("Eastern Promises") shows a keen insight into the psychology of the sons of alcoholic fathers. Tom Hardy, one of the best actors working today, shows his versatility in this subtle performance.

Movie Talk

You would not think a film in which a man simply drives at night from Birmingham to London could possibly be gripping, but Tom Hardy proves spellbindingly hypnotic in this decidedly unusual road movie.

It is well-written and professionally constructed and guided by a powerful performance by Hardy, who is starting to become one of the most promising actors of his generation.

Paul Byrnes
Sydney Morning Herald

If there has been a better cautionary tale for men since Fatal Attraction, I can't think of it, but Locke is about more than fidelity. It's a thriller about the horrors of modern life. All that technology, but who can save him?

I think Steven Knight's done a terrific job of direction. It's a very intelligent, very austere film.

Margaret Pomeranz
At the Movies (Australia)

It is the most extraordinary feat this film, and it's not just an exercise in pyrotechnics, it's an exploration of existential angst.

Under the Radar

For a movie set entirely inside a car, Locke is an impressive and engaging feat.

Projection Booth

Hardy's introspective intensity helps to achieve and sustain and level of intimacy that's more thrilling than many films with 100 times the budget.

Times-Picayune

Thanks largely to the involvement of actor Tom Hardy, it manages to become more than just a gimmick film.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Steven Knight has delivered not only a powerfully minimalistic picture, but a morally attuned one as well, that portrays how one immoral act can bring about a lifetime of affliction.

2UE That Movie Show

Thanks to Knight's direction, precise scripting and Tom Hardy's formidable talent, Locke is an emotionally devastating time capsule of a man riding the wave of his life collapsing.

Steven Knight's Locke makes us ride 'shotgun' with Tom Hardy for 85 minutes and doesn't let us out until the final credits roll. There are worse people to be stuck in traffic with. Carrot Top. Piers Morgan. Literally any Jenner.

Simple in concept but complex in its detail... engrossing and suspenseful.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

What seems like a limited stunt concept turns out to be one of the most intense -- and cinematic -- experiences of the year, anchored to a brilliant performance by Tom Hardy.
