Lockout

Fragland
18 December 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s 2079 and the eternal problem of overcrowded prisons is finally resolved. Instead of putting prisoners in small rooms with chances of escape, riots and guards that go on strike, we just shoot them into space! At least, just about.

Lockout: Unrated Edition (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: Right from the beginning, the viewer is treated to a crazy one wheeled motorcycle chase scene. I’ve never seen a chase look more CGI-like, especially when one yellow cab flips. If you get past that, and accept it and everything that follows, you’ll find an enjoyable action flick.

Lockout Review

  • Excerpt: Someone wasn’t thinking when they designed an international space prison for the world’s most ruthless convicts. The facility is self-contained, which seems like mistake one. Although prisoners are kept in a constant state of stasis (you then wonder why they need so many guards), there are no...

Lockout Blu-ray Review

BigPictureBigSound
15 July 2012
  • Conclusion: It isn't so much that Lockout is a bad movie. It is actually a really bad movie, but it lacks any originality. Every aspect of this wannabe cyberpunk film has been done before, and in most cases done better - and who would ever think that Demolition Man would be used in a comparison as the better...

Lockout

High-Def Digest
12 July 2012
  • Conclusion: 'Lockout' felt like it had guilty pleasure written all over it, so I was disappointed I was so bored much of the time, not by the look of the movie or its explosion-filled sound design, but by Pearce's lackadaisical take on his character.

Lockout (2012)

blu-ray.com
10 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Don't count on seeing Lockout on any best-of-year awards lists or in Oscar contention for any category -- there's more of a chance the good folks over at the Razzie Awards will find a spot for it -- but mark it down as one of the year's most simple and effective entertainment vehicles.

Lockout

AV Club
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: For years after Die Hard set the template for modern action movies—predominantly single location, pitting tough and often irreverent loose cannon against a pack of sneering Euro-terrorists or gangsters—the “ Die Hard in a” subgenre thrived: on a plane ( Air Force One ), a boat ( Under Siege ), and a...

Review: ‘Lockout’

Variety
9 April 2012
  • Summary: A mass breakout at an outer-space Alcatraz yields a few cheap thrills and an amusing leading-man showcase for Guy Pearce in "Lockout."
