Not particularly a good film, but it's just as great as any of Jean-Claude Van Damme's B-Rated goodness. The film, if to be judged from the perspective of not taking it seriously, is nothing but a Luc Besson's production. 'Fast-paced, high-octane and extremely entertaining' might just be the precise phrase for the film. With a context served more like a generic action-packed video-game flick, the film begins in a hurry, not to mention the crankily done special-effects (maybe it's European-influenced, oh wait, green screen) and Guy Pearce's smart-ass verbal remarks that both might just be as good as any direct-to-video action flicks, Of course, the movie ended abruptly with a bang. Don't get me wrong, Guy Pearce owned the whole movie with his consistent charm as a joke-vomiting special agent, Maggie Grace is hot. Comedic essence were thrown around along the way. It's like an amusement park roller-coaster, you buy the tickets, you go for a dizzy yet reasonably purposeless ride, yet you feel thrilled after the whole messed-up upside down scenario. Since the film took place in outer space, the visuals created were acceptably beautiful in a style utopian of its own way. At the end of the day, such film was made to be not taken seriously, but instead delivers the usual rote of bullets-firing gun and loud explosions for a specifically testosterone-charged bunch who are looking forward for an entertaining show.

This movie was awesome. It was creepy with some romance.

Not bad as it seems for guy pierce but this one marks a outer space adventure with mediocre cast and acting but still enjoyable flick. 3 out of 5

I really enjoyed Lockout. It was a thrilling film and Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace's performances were amazing. On the down side it took a little time to get whats going on. This movie is also very funny thanks to Guy Pearce. GRADE:A-

I had enough fun with the action scenes in the movie but there are definitely multiple flaws to be addressed. The effects are not very good, the movie is almost too implausible, and the acting is passable at best. Its a good movie to just turn your brain off and have a good time but its not up with the best action thrillers. Also it doesn't really use the whole "space prison" concept to its full creative potential. Nonetheless, I had some fun and was on the edge of my seat in this sci fi action movie and think its fine to watch once.

this movie is the quintessential one liner action movie. per usual Guy Pearce does not dissapoint with a better than most performance. I think i appreciated the fact that the movie was exactly what it advertaised it would be, nothing more, nothing less, just a fun rollercoaster ride in space.

Very cool but some cheesy techniques are used.

Exceptional idea but lacked plot and the follow through. Tons of action but mainly just felt like an outer space prison break action montage. If the plot was better and the character development was more dynamic it would've been a great movie.

A little bit of Die Hard. A little bit of Escape from New York. A lot of Arnold Action Film craziness. Mix together and cook at 1000 degrees in space for a good time. Fun old fashioned popcorn action. I liked it.

Yes, the whole product was trashy but it was a lot of fun. A good trash indeed.

Remember how Batman & Robin was a script built entirely out of one-liners? Now imagine if that had actually worked out... Now set it in space.

On a basic scale, Lockout is entertaining with some of the most enjoyable action cliches. The plot isn't too original, but the setting helps. The characters aren't the most developed, but they're fun to watch. The CGI ranges, with some shots looking pretty unfinished. All in all, the movie hits most of its marks.
