[5.50/10] Lockout (2012)

Lockout (2012)

QuickRating: Guy Pearce's super cool character and his fantastically amusing performance make the movie perfectly watchable and at times even satisfyingly entertaining, and the futuristic visuals, while far from spectacular, work for the most part, but "Lockout" lacks originality big time and often feels like a hybrid of dozen other (and better) sci-fi flicks, and that really brings this otherwise well-crafted and decently action-packed movie down.

Bummer. We skipped it in the theater due to lackluster reviews. Still, I like Pearce as an actor so will watch eventually on NetFlix.

Alex, I didn't watch it in the theater either. Pearce did an incredible job in this one. If it wasn't for him, the movie would have been atrocious.

I agree. It was all a bit so-so and I didn't like the wisecracks.

George Beremov [Nebular] said...

Ricky, and I did. I thought they were the film's main strength.

I'll be watching this as I love Guy. He's a great actor. Been watching him since his days on Snowy River. About 17 years now. God, am I old or what? LOL

Mel, I'm a fan of Guy too. He looks great even at that age and his acting is spot-on as usual.
