Reviews

Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson and Olivia Colman star in this thriller from writer and director Steven Knight. Ivan Locke (Hardy) is the head of a successful construction company and is happily married to Katrina (Wilson) with whom he has two sons, Eddie (Tom Holland) and Sean (Bill Milner). However, he must risk it all to 'do the right thing' when he faces the consequences of a past mistake. He learns that Bethan (Colman), a woman he had a one-off encounter with some months ago, is pregnant and he decides to leave Birmingham and drive down to London so he can be at the birth of his child. The film follows Locke in his car through the whole journey as he has phone conversations with his wife, children and colleagues and talks to his father as though he is there with him. Will his decision cost him the life he has worked so hard to obtain? The cast also features Andrew Scott, Ben Daniels, Danny Webb and Alice Lowe.

You could imagine the look on the studios face when the idea for this film was pitched.

'Yeah, it's about some Welsh fella who is driving to London to be at the birth of his child, but he's married, and there's a problem with some concrete'.

Now on face value, you couldn't imagine this film doing anything for anybody, let alone pay to see a man driving for ninety minutes, we do enough of that already. But look deeper, and this is the story of a man who has obviously come from a bad childhood, and under no circumstances, will he follow in his fathers footsteps, even if it does mean his life will be left in tatters.

In the past five years, everything Hardy has done, even if the film is a load of old cobblers like This Means War, has shown that he can out act everyone on screen, and here, it's literally just him, and a few phone calls.

But what makes the film so interesting is the fact that he's chucking everything away for someone he hardly knows, someone he met on a business trip, because he knows deep down he has a responsibility for an unborn child, an innocent who needs a father in their life, as its clear that Locke never had that in his life.

But then things go from bad to worse. There is a problem with his work, and even when the worst case scenario happens, he still helps a colleague, even when his unborn child is having a difficult birth and is at high risk, he is still there to talk to his teenage children.

Hardy is superb in the titular role, using every emotion through out the film, but oddly remaining calm during his life changing journey.

I can really understand why people are dismissing this as boring, but you really have to understand that this is more than a mans life going to ruins.

One man, one mistake and many voices to contend with... a brilliant film like no other! A screen stealing performance from Tom Hardy, who carries off a great Welsh accent all throughout the film playing Ivan Locke! The film starts of like an advert for a BMW car, but you know it's going to be a long journey down the M1 for Locke, as soon as you realise the error he made in the past.

Hardy, brilliantly switches into different modes whilst talking to different characters on his hands free kit on the motorway and credit to him for remaining congruent all throughout the journey. Without giving too much away, this film will keep you gripped till the very end as Hardy portrays different emotions to pull off a brilliant one man show.

A good supporting cast and definitely worth a watch.

I really enjoyed this film. It didn't take long to engage with the character of Locke because Tom Hardy was fantastic in the role. Everything from his welsh accent to his physical movements were brilliantly executed given that he spends the whole film driving from Wales to London while his world comes crashing down around him. I could really empathise with Locke and found myself worrying that he would come to some harm. The claustrophobic space of the car together with the applied pressure from the incessant phone calls really added to the sense of urgency and the unfolding of his project managed life and work. This film will make you think about why people live the way they do and how sometimes lives are dictated by careful management in a desperate attempt to erase the past or to always do the right thing. I thought that it could have been called `Something Concrete' because there are so many parallels between the mortar and life, get it wrong and everything crumbles.

Format: DVD
Interesting (and short) film starring man of the moment Tom Hardy. Ivan Locke has decided that he has to deal with all the serious issues that have been bubbling up in his life and sets off on a long car journey after finishing work to sort them all out. That is pretty much the premise of the film as all we see in this film is Hardy driving on a road and talking to various people on his hands free phone. The situations he's involved in may well strike home to many people who watch and to be honest, when certain people's names appear ringing on his phone the tension can become unbearable, be it his boss, wife, son or past one night stand! Full marks go to Hardy for making what could be a difficult slog a gripping experience, but whether you'd want to watch it again, or indeed whether you can get past his Rob Brydon accent, just stop it from getting 5 stars. Well worth a viewing though.

Format: DVD
It's wrong to call it a thriller, hence all the poor reviews from disappointed people who expected blood, guts, guns and fast action.
For me this is one of the best films ever. If you have any interest in family life, belief in principles, job dedication, and yet also in how we are prey to a mistake, this film is for you. Don't expect a cast of thousands, do expect a superb principal actor and a fascinating interaction between him and the rest of the characters whom we only hear yet never see.
If at the end of it you reflect on the nature of human frailty, and the difficulty of having enough compassion to be able to forgive, and somehow between the two things still striving to do the right thing; AND not wanting an ending with everything done and dusted - then this is your film. Steve Riches, Northampton, UK.
