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

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Stupid... Very Fun! July 20, 2012
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars B-Movie Fun: Leave Your Artistic Snootiness Behind April 15, 2012
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pearce is fantastic. The rest...not so much. April 13, 2012
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could easily have been better .... (some spoilers) July 18, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
So, two of the other reviews struck me. One said closer to a 2 than a 4, and I have to agree - not ready to give it a 2 star "Didn't Like", but feel unsatisfied giving it a 3 star "OK". The acting was ok - actually liked Maggie Grace, a lot - a cut above your average damsel in distress. As far as Guy Pierce's Snow, another review said they were reminded of Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China, but whereas Kurt Russell was playing something of a blow hard in that film, Snow in this film is more like a Bruce Willis Character (I'm thinking more Joe Hallenbeck from the Last Boy Scout, than John McLane) ... although this felt a bit more of a caricature than a character. Or maybe Bruce Willis is better at acting hurt as he is cracking wise while having the crap beat out of him. Getting hit in the face like that messes you up, and to have an "Oh-Come-On" moment come so early in the film sets a bad tone.

I am surprised no one saw the resemblance to another Kurt Russell movie - Escape from New York. Pretty sure the writers have seen that one. Now THAT movie is looking a little old these days, and could do with a re-boot, and when I saw this I was seriously expecting that.

Now ... Spoilers ...

... here is where I have a problem with the film. Snow is still working a case he was helping a friend with, even though it crashed and burned resulting the friend dying and Snow being charged with his murder. In fact there is something strange about his arrest in that it is pretty apparent that he is being framed, but by who? He agrees to rescue Emilie, the President's daughter, so that he can look for his partner who has been locked up on the space station for shooting a police officer after stashing some important evidence - but we don't know evidence of what.
