Lockout (Unrated) Reviews

Kristal Cooper
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.

It rattles along at an appropriately frantic pace. It's just a shame that so much cheese has been allowed into the recipe.

A collage of futuristic landscapes and big screen 1-vs-100 scenarios, the "space jail" thriller tests your patience for stupidity and cookie cutter filmmaking.

Shallow, silly yet infectiously good-natured, this is as guiltily pleasurable as dystopia gets.

Guy Pearce goes into low-Earth orbit to get his cool back in "Lockout," a silly sci-fi B-picture made fun by his star turn.

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

Snow is an overwritten hero who talks like a sitcom character. Every line is a wisecrack, a gag, or what he fondly thinks of as a witticism.

I kept waiting for Nicolas Cage to show up. Or Katherine Heigl. Or, god forbid, both.

The editing by Eamonn Power and Camille Delamarre appears to have been handled while running from one gate to another in an airport somewhere.

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

So it's the future. And the President's daughter is being held hostage in an outer space prison. And the only guy brave/tough/smartass enough to go get her just happens to be the ex-government agent who might be a murderer.

Big dumb fun is the chief objective of Lockout, so it's a pity that this sci-fi action flick only consistently delivers on two-thirds of its promise.

What could have been a smart Kubrickian enterprise, or at the very least a top-of-the-line sci-fi piece, instead aspires to little more than stock C-grade action schlock.

Shoddy special effects and the surface-level sass of the president's daughter leave this one spinning in low orbit.

With the exception of Guy Pearce's old school anti-hero Snow, Lockout is a pointless exercise that's bereft of originality in both its plotting and direction.

If nothing else it's a strong argument for Pearce to take on more charismatic leading roles-- he comes so close to rescuing Lockout that who knows what he might do in an actual good movie.
