Overall, the acting is abysmal.

I'm not looking for revelatory performances from actors in bad action movies, but I do need to feel like they're participating and not phoning it in.

You might find it to be thoroughly clichéd and utterly predictable. But it's not boring. That's largely thanks to Guy Pearce.

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.

struggles to overcome the many disparate clichés thrown together by the filmmakers.

It's the cinematic equivalent of Paris Hilton.

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.

If you're going high concept, you do it to the max. The guys behind this one, however, only get halfway there, losing too much energy, attention and budget to lame story frills.

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.
