Product Description

Luc Besson (Director of The Fifth Element) presents this futuristic thriller about a renegade CIA agent (Guy Pearce, PROMETHEUS) who is betrayed by his government and sentenced to 30 years frozen in a cryonic chamber 50 miles above Earth. The only way to avoid serving time is a suicide mission – overcome a gang of ruthless prisoners and rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace, Taken).

A hostage crisis--in orbit!--allows writer-producer Luc Besson (The Transporter, Taken) to spin yet another of his irresistibly pulpy action flicks: Lockout tosses a disgraced secret agent (Guy Pearce) into the middle of a space station/prison that houses the planet's worst criminals. Oh, and by the way, the key hostage in the inmate rampage just happens to be the daughter (Maggie Grace) of the US president, visiting the facility for an official visit that spirals into a major malfunction. It goes without saying that Pearce's badass is a cynical, wisecracking jerk, with an intro scene that sets up his character in a hilariously visceral way. And sure, you can say this movie borrows liberally from the likes of Escape from New York and Die Hard and countless others, and that the characters are stock figures, and you'd be right. But the plot is tight and simple, the setting adds a nice wrinkle, and the muscled-up Pearce is just offbeat enough to lay gleeful claim to the overly familiar role. The bad guys, too, are truly loathsome (most of them have British accents, which makes them seem like refugees from a Guy Ritchie picture). Lockout isn't rocket science, but its spritzy B-movie energy is undeniable, and on those terms it operates more than adequately. --Robert Horton

Format: Blu-ray
After all the negative reviews, I almost avoided this little gem altogether. I rented it, watched it, and enjoyed it so much I purchased it on blu ray and watched it again. For those looking for a light-hearted action flick that pays homage to classic 80's action films like "Escape From New York" and "Die Hard" while never taking itself too seriously- "Lockout" is incredibly entertaining.

Plot in a nutshell: covert government agent Snow is falsely accused of murder and sentenced to 30 years in a maximum security prison set in outer space where the prisoners spend their time in a cryogenically frozen sleep. Just before being shipped off to serve his time, the President of the United State's daughter (who conveniently happens to be doing humanitarian work at that same prison) is taken hostage by the inmates. Snow must go in and rescue the President's daughter before time runs out...

While there's little to nothing original about "Lockout," it is a very enjoyable movie with a terrific comic book atmosphere and tone. Our anti-hero is "Snow", wonderfully played by Guy Pearce. Snow is a wise-cracking smartass whose one-liners are biting and humorous. When he's not kicking someone's ass, someone is probably kicking his. He always gets into situations that are over his head and he never walks away unscathed. Fight scenes always go back and forth- he dishes it out and he takes it in return- and it's fun watching to see how he manages to get himself out of these bad situations.

Obviously, the movie missed its mark with a lot of people and critics in general. If you are looking for a serious, high-brow sci-fi thriller, then I advise staying far away from this movie!

Lockout is the type of movie that you need to go into expecting nothing from, because the unexpected humor, zippy dialogue, rapid-fire action scenes, and cast of quirky characters is about as entertaining as it gets. Even my stodgy spouse enjoyed this movie and laughed aloud at times. There are some plot holes and a few maguffins that will leave you scratching your head and wondering why events happened and why characters acted the way they did, but who cares? Have some fun with this romp and let your hair down. It's an entertaining 1:50 of movie mayhem and fun.

This movie is part Escape From New York, part Die Hard, part Star Wars, and part Mad Max. It's a blast!

Format: DVD
Luc Besson has been behind some of the best action and sci-fi films of the past eighteen years; directing films such as Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element and contributing to the writing process for films such as Kiss of the Dragon, The Transporter, Revolver, and From Paris With Love. Besson's films aren't always the smartest or the best written, but they don't have to be when they're usually so damn entertaining. On top of that, I'm a fairly huge Guy Pearce fan other than last month's Seeking Justice, which we'll just pretend doesn't exist for the sake of argument. So Lockout looked like it could be a hell of a lot of fun, but there was something I couldn't quite put my finger on that didn't seem quite right in the trailers and TV spots.

Accused of a crime he didn't commit, Snow (Guy Pearce) is about to be locked away for thirty years. The president's daughter Emilie Warnock (Maggie Grace) is sent to a prison in outer space to help psychologically diagnose the prisoners when an interrogation goes wrong and prisoner Hydell (Joseph Gilgun) escapes and sets all 400+ prisoners on the space station free. Snow is offered his freedom if he can break into the prison and rescue Emilie.

Lockout has this superb beginning. The interrogation sequence with Snow and Langral (Peter Stormare) and the fight sequence immediately afterwards are both extremely entertaining and fast paced. The closing part of it with the gun is something taken right out of a Jackie Chan flick, which should be taken as the highest compliment. The entire movie has incredible momentum anyway as the slower moments are tense and everything else is just go-go-go the whole time. Snow is a great character, as well.

First off, Lockout is not meant to be taken seriously. It is a fun action sci-fi movie that breaks the boundaries of what it physically possible. Remember when you were a kid playing with your little action figures in the sandbox, well that is how they designed Lockout. They forgot about what is real and what can actually be done and simply had fun.

Guy Pearce is hilarious and teamed up with Maggie Grace the laughs just keep rolling. It is an action, sci-fi, comedy that is amazingly well crafted if you can take your thinking cap off and just have fun. There are a few plot twists, but nothing you didn't see coming. While Lockout doesn't really bring anything completely new to the table, it is very entertaining and well worth multiple viewings.

Due to mixed reviews I did not expect much, but Lockout really impressed me with its style and fast paced action. Other reviews has said that the special effects looked terrible, that is simply because of the style. One thing Lockout has is style and solid direction and cinematography. They knew what they were doing with this movie and they pulled it off perfectly.
