Editorial Reviews

Ivan Locke (Hardy) has worked diligently to craft the life he has envisioned, dedicating himself to the job that he loves and the family he adores. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. All taking place over the course of one absolutely riveting car ride, LOCKE is an exploration of how one decision can lead to the complete collapse of a life. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Steven Knight (EASTERN PROMISES, DIRTY PRETTY THINGS) and driven by an unforgettable performance by Tom Hardy, LOCKE is a thrillingly unique cinematic experience of a man fighting to salvage all that is important to him.

SPOILER Alert. I am not going to tell you what the story is about because everybody else's review does that and spoils it for you.

So I will just say that if you are a Tom Hardy fan, you are going to see arguably his best career performance to date. If you are not a Tom Hardy fan, this film will make you one. Originally conceived as a stage play, Steven Knight and Tom Hardy, Knight's only choice for the lead, came up with this unique way of telling a story.

Hardy drives in real time. In real traffic. On real phones. The supporting cast are holed up in a hotel room on the other end. Tom's head cold is real. He is really driving, and the teleprompter is where the visor would be. Tom said he had to watch the road traffic so there was a bit of improv going on at times. LOL The shooting was done every night for a week, over and over, so Knight could select the best one. Cameras were attached to the vehicle to get every conceivable angle.

The technical aspects of this film will astound you. Tom Hardy's performance will astound you. The supporting actors, all only voices on the phone line, will astound you. The story is bittersweet and sad and uplifting simultaneously. You will love Ivan Locke, or despise him, or judge him, or admire him. He gives you an opportunity to feel all of those.

A thundering horn-blowing Five Stars for this masterpiece of film.

The night before the largest project of his career, Ivan Locke, a respected Birmingham construction foreman and a loving husband with two sons, does not go home. He instead drives nonstop to London. He has made a complicated and profound decision: seven months prior, in a rare ethical lapse, he slept with an older woman while traveling, and she is now delivering his child. He will be there for the birth. During the 90-minute drive south, he is on the phone, readying the next morning's events—there are machines to be tested and road closures confirmed—while also arguing for and trying to protect the warm home life now evaporating in his abrupt absence. The title character is the story's only physical presence (his family members and colleagues are represented by their diverse, distraught, frustrated, inquisitive voices) and invites or even demands a major performance capable of riveting the audience without fail. The magnificent Tom Hardy is the right choice then. With his measured, Welsh-accented voice and demonstrative face, he reveals the soul of a previously-in-control man on the verge of despair and destruction whose only option is to combat each emerging crisis with logic and a practical touch. This is the story of a man whose iron sense of moral purpose is bruised, teased, and otherwise upended at every turn by circumstance, memory, and the volatility of the people upon whom he relies even as he hurts them, and Hardy conveys the internal ache in a way both majestic and subtle.

Also deserving of significant praise is writer and director Steven Knight, who made a fantastic directorial debut last year with Redemption (also known as Hummingbird), a dramatic action film far too few people in the United States saw.

'Locke' represents drama stripped down to essentials, and film-making that is willing to take huge risks in order to create a profound character study; it is also an examination of the consequences of being a flawed but deeply moral person. It forces the viewer to ask very hard questions about their own values. Is there a point at which you will abandon the very beliefs that define a person, in order to avoid causing pain to both yourself and your family?

Taking place in real time, 'Locke' follows the title character on his long ride to the hospital, where he is hell-bent on witnessing the birth of his child and supporting the mother -- who is virtually a stranger. With a wife and two sons at home, Locke is determined not to abandon the lonely woman with whom he had a one night stand, and more importantly, to be there for the birth of his 'bastard' child; he grew up without a father himself, and has vowed to not repeat his father's mistakes.

The entire film takes place in the vehicle, not a single scene or shot beyond it's claustrophobic confines. The car itself could represent the uncompromising ethics that become like a prison, or a coffin, forcing him to take actions he knows will cause pain and damage to everyone around him. But operating within those tight parameters, it is impossible for him to act any other way.

Locke speaks to a number of people via hands-free cell-phone, and the closer he gets to the maternity ward, the farther away his family and his career become. In order to attend the birth, he deserts his post as a highly respected structural engineer, despite the fact that the cement is to be poured for the foundations of a huge, record-breaking project the next morning.

"Locke" is Tom Hardy in a car sifting through his Rolodex of contacts and being on the phone for 80-minutes straight. It's the type of concept similar to what Rodrigo Cortes was going for in "Buried." "Locke" may be a low-budget film that's simple in execution, but it allows its audience to rely on the actor's performance to get them through the film.

Hardy's on-screen presence in Steven Knight's dramatic thriller is riveting. Ivan Locke is ridiculously calm and composed with the life altering decisions he's made at the beginning of the film, but the events that transpire over the phone on Ivan's strange but determined journey not only pluck at his emotions but his sanity as well. Locke's arguments with his reflection in the rear-view mirror as he targets his neglectful father are disturbingly outstanding. Those powerful sequences show that Hardy needs nothing but a working camera pointed squarely at him in order to showcase his exquisite talent as a leading man.

The resolution of "Locke" leaves a lot to be desired even with Hardy's strong performance. The drama that unfolds is very realistic and believable. It seems like it could happen to anyone. While the plot is intricate, the plot points remain within the realm of reality and nothing stands in the way of the film's energetic pace. But you expect more when the ending rolls around. While certain things are wrapped up, the film feels a little short as it could have allowed another 10 or 20 minutes to be fully satisfying.

Witnessing a man being pushed to his breaking point is the best part of "Locke." Tom Hardy delivers an emotionally exhausting and attention demanding performance that's one of the best of the English actor's career.
