What happened to Guy Pearce? This guy used to be in exceptional movies. Does he not remember that he was the star of The Count of Monte Cristo, LA Confidential, and damn Memento? Lockout is a fast paced action movie with no substance at all. It is like Taken with no heart. Lockout is so generic and cliched that it is embarrassing. The sad part is Guy Pearce is so good, that his acting and overall charisma almost saves this movie. However, between terrible acting (Maggie Grace), an even worse plot, and downright sickening bad direction, Lockout fails badly.
