      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Guy Pearce does the best he can with what he's given, but Lockout is ultimately too derivative and shallow to build on the many sci-fi thrillers it borrows from.

      Forged S Have you seen this movie? If I had to guess, I'd say probably not. Sadly, this 2000s-2010s-era EuropaCorp film, flew under the radar without so much as a mention. While the story is one you've seen before, a falsely accused/ framed convict is sent to rescue the President's daughter from a maximum security prison (this time, in outer space) it's Guy Pierce's charismatic take as the protagonist, Snow, and his witty tit for tat chemistry with co-lead @maggiegrace, playing the first daughter Emilie, that makes this movie so entertaining. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/10/24 Full Review Audience Member I don't understand the hate about this movie. It's very neatly done, the pace is fast, Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace are both great, their chemistry is perfect, and the bad guys are really nasty ones. If you're a fan of action and sci-fi, you'll absolutely dig this flick. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review aaron g So many parts borrowed from, making it a pretty mindless popcorn flick. Yet so shallow, it's hard to care. Pearce does a decent job, but some of the villains are just cartoonish. Ultimately not a bad film to see again on a Sunday afternoon, but there just isn't much that draws you back. The start is some of the worst CGI out there, but it gets a little better once in space. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Recommended by a manager and it was just ok. CG effects were kind of terrible and you could tell it was a low budget film. Story was ok, acting about the same. Not too many actions scene but makes it up with bad CG explosions. Won't see this again. Too low of a production value for me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review robert p I have seen this movie under other names, its very generic and the special effects stink, this is not a movie I enjoy, thus my two star rating!! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Not too long, plenty of action, decent cast, what's not to like.

      Noah Berlatsky The Atlantic This movie is vacuous. Aug 28, 2019 Full Review David Denby New Yorker At the screening, in between laughing fits, people around me whispered, in awed tones, "B movie, 1956." Apr 23, 2012 Full Review Austin Chronicle Rated: 3/5 Apr 21, 2012 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …when you want to make a Die Hard film set in a space prison, and Bruce Willis isn’t available, Guy Pearce is absolutely the man for the job… Rated: 4/5 Oct 10, 2023 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Almost every scene or story element feels familiar in one way or another, so much so that enjoying the movie on its own terms becomes impossible. Rated: 1/4 Dec 4, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “Lockout” takes a lot of its inspiration from those 80’s action flicks, and it unashamedly tries to recreate the tone and feel of those films.
