Lockout (Unrated) Reviews

Page 1 of 7

They don't make 'em like this anymore, except when they do and you remember why they stopped. Daft, but broadly enjoyable if you're in a charitable mood.

Lean, fun, smart without overthinking things and always equipped with a one-liner, Lockout is refreshingly free of the bull**** that plagues so many genre films.

Lockout succeeds as a result of Pearce - who delivers an enjoyable, albeit snide, performance as a government agent turned one-man-army.

We Got This Covered

While Lockout matches Luc Besson's other film projects in its devotion to being nothing more than a slick, uncomplicated spectacle, the film's ridiculously botched execution and lazy action sequences make it ultimately fall short.

[Seems] like the kind of exciting low-concept action schlock that producer Luc Besson could have engineered in his sleep. Maybe he had indigestion that night.

Lockout is a film derivative of several notable genre classics, but the film does offer some entertainment value.

Lyles' Movie Files

Whenever Guy Pearce's Snow is on screen, the film's a fun, brainless, action flick with a main character that deserves a better movie.

The Ooh Tray

What surprises is how much guilty pleasure directors Mather and St.Leger, who sound like islands off the coast of France, rather than filmmakers, wring from Lockout's 95 minutes.

Even once it has run its course, Lockout is no knockout.

The only thing this film was missing was the New World Pictures logo to come up at the beginning of it.

What Culture

Sometimes, it is all about tone, and while Lockout has enough flaws to shake several sticks at, it is a film entirely in the vein of the silly, riotously fun John Carpenter sci-fi forays of the 80s

The first disappointing movie that concentrates too much on character and not enough on action.

SFX Magazine

James Mather and Stephen St Leger's debut feature isn't smart, it doesn't have anything to say about the human condition and it never takes itself remotely seriously, but none of that matters with a film this much fun.

At the screening, in between laughing fits, people around me whispered, in awed tones, "B movie, 1956."

The action beats, while decently handled, actually lingers shorter in the memory than the force of Pearce's surprisingly light and lively personality.

The most interesting feature of Besson's film is that the outer-space jailbirds are led by a Scot with a striking resemblance to George Galloway.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Loud, longing to be rated R and at times just plain silly, 'Lockdown' left me wanting to see another 'Transporter' flick.

"Lockout" has a very minute amount of cheesy comedy that will have you laughing at it, but maybe that is the point.

This is London

It's laughably over the top but Pearce, a decent actor, anchors it somewhere between Escape From New York and The Transformers.
