The dialogue between the two leads and Guy Pearce's pleasant performance make this sci-di drama worth seeing.
Audience Reviews for Lockout
A Sci-Fi action thriller so fast you don't even notice how flawed it is. Pearce's one-liners are way too entertaining and the pace way too breathless to notice how many other (and better) films were influencing this. It's not particularly engaging, what with the cartoonish bad guys and somewhat predictable plot, but somehow it's still a lot of fun and over sooner than you can blink, erm....think.
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.
