... [Guy] Pearce makes it fun.

Even once it has run its course, Lockout is no knockout.
April 26, 2012
The only thing this film was missing was the New World Pictures logo to come up at the beginning of it.
April 25, 2012
Sometimes, it is all about tone, and while Lockout has enough flaws to shake several sticks at, it is a film entirely in the vein of the silly, riotously fun John Carpenter sci-fi forays of the 80s
April 25, 2012
The first disappointing movie that concentrates too much on character and not enough on action.
April 23, 2012
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.
April 23, 2012
At the screening, in between laughing fits, people around me whispered, in awed tones, "B movie, 1956."
April 22, 2012
The action beats, while decently handled, actually lingers shorter in the memory than the force of Pearce's surprisingly light and lively personality.
April 22, 2012
The most interesting feature of Besson's film is that the outer-space jailbirds are led by a Scot with a striking resemblance to George Galloway.

Loud, longing to be rated R and at times just plain silly, 'Lockdown' left me wanting to see another 'Transporter' flick.

"Lockout" has a very minute amount of cheesy comedy that will have you laughing at it, but maybe that is the point.
April 20, 2012
It's laughably over the top but Pearce, a decent actor, anchors it somewhere between Escape From New York and The Transformers.

They don't make 'em like this anymore, except when they do and you remember why they stopped. Daft, but broadly enjoyable if you're in a charitable mood.
April 20, 2012
Furiously forbidding, filled with a great deal of sinister action that makes little sense.
April 20, 2012
Shallow, silly yet infectiously good-natured, this is as guiltily pleasurable as dystopia gets.
April 20, 2012
Even with the bonus of Pearce's sardonic performance Lockout is still little more than a soulless, slapdash computer game.
April 20, 2012
The space prison set-pieces get the job done; only in the film's terrestrial bookends does this nuts-and-bolts action film show its rust.
April 20, 2012
It rattles along at an appropriately frantic pace. It's just a shame that so much cheese has been allowed into the recipe.
April 20, 2012
Whether you call it rip-off or homage, Lockout's guilty-pleasure mix of explosive action and tongue-in-cheek humour is mightily enjoyable.
