Excerpt: After hearing about this on multiple radio shows, I thought I would give it a watch. Luckily I did not blind buy it, instead I rented it first. This is one of those boring, low-budget films that really go nowhere. I was expecting a change of scenery, but there was none. Rent this one before you blind buy. Or skip it altogether.
Excerpt: I knew little about Locke before watching it. I think I saw the trailer once and was instantly interested. Lately I try not to view a full movie trailer or watch the trailer multiple times as I like to leave something to be discovered. Most trailers give too much away. Locke is a good story with an amazing performance by Tom Hardy. It is a very simple film which takes place almost 100% in a BMW SUV.
Summary: Not what I was expecting but I loved this film. It grabbed my attention from the start and didn't let go until the end credits. Tom Hardy is such a massive talent and will surely become one of the great actors of his generation.
