An instant classic. It`s Escape From New York in space, a film with lots of ideas and great homages to other pictures. A spectacular and pulse-pounding great-time at the movies. It`s slick, wickedly funny and loaded with eye-popping action. A non-stop, action-packed adrenaline-ru...

Putting aside some truly shocking special effects, Lockout is a perfectly acceptable action film. I quite liked it in fact, the initial interviewing scene was really well done and even though the story was familiar, I liked what they did, and the characters/performances were all ...

Over the years in which they've been churned out i've grown a weird fondness towards Luc Besson's exploitation B-Movie production stable. Though they have always prefered to carry plots free of realism a...

A half decent almost comic book action film, with a slight feel of Escape from New York about it. Plenty of action to keep you entertained with a decent cast to, Joseph Gilgun has come a long way since Emmerdale! A bit cheesy but you know what to expect from this and it delivers.

"This is one of those films where you can just shut your mind off and watch it in a numb state with drool running down your chin. It's not exciting or thrilling. It tries for some humor, but it ends up trying to hard which ends up being cheesy. I'm not sure if I've seen Guy Pearc...

Snow: That'll freeze the nerves in this spot for 24 hours. You want some in your mouth?
"Take no prisoners."
Lockout is just another low brain, high action movie; and for what it is, it's watchable. The movie moves at a quick pace, substituting intelligence for speed; but it a...

Not sure why it took two people to direct this film, but James Mather and Stephen St. Leger conjure up some amusement with Lockout.
Just reaching 90 minutes, the plot for Lockout is straightforward, paced with high velocity, and contains very little in twists and...

"Lockout" is a futuristic story where the government sends an ex convict, Snow(Guy Pearce) to a maximum-security prison to save the Presidents Daughter(Maggie Grace). I saw somewhere where this was compared to "Die Hard" and I can see that. The biggest difference is "Die Hard" ...

A generic mishmash of sci-fi films enlivened by a tongue in cheek performance by Guy Pearce. The story really has a cool premise, but they only use it as a backdrop for some action set pieces that are rather normal really. The special effects aren't the greatest and really show t...
