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.
First-time directors James Mather and Stephen St Leger ... keep the tension at boiling point with a series of bloody but deftly staged shocks, which help to obscure the occasional incredulities of the plot.
Yes, it's a guilty pleasure. And, I really don't think there's anything original about "Lockout." But, Guy Pearce is a very decent action hero and there's plenty happening in this outer space adventure.
