DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller Sci-Fi - With Luc Besson in the credits as a writer and producer, this is of course another action film, this time set in the future with some science fiction elements. Fans of Guy Pearce will enjoy this change of pace starring vehicle for him, where he plays not only an action hero but a constantly wisecracking one. Maggie Grace also has a substantial role. While the film is rated PG-13 and doesn't have too much graphic bloodshed, the violence is still too intense for kids, as is the rough language.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Lockout takes forever to get going, stumbles through the action-centric main chapter, then ends with a brief third act that is chaotic, rushed, and ultimately unsatisfying.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average I imagine the movie's intended audience will enjoy itself.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average a putrid film that comes dead-weighted with hammy one-liners and a plot so silly it borders on comedy?
