Product Description

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.

By film fan VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I saw this British gem of a film at my local multiplex cinema and I was completely taken in by it. It was one of the best British films I'd seen in a very long time. It had pretty much everything, drama, suspense, and terrific acting by Tom Hardy I thought.

It tells of Ivan Locke, who's happily married with two sons, who leaves work in Birmingham on his way home or so we're led to believe. He's on his way to a hospital in London and be there for the birth of his baby he had with another woman. He wants to "do the right thing" and be there at the birth of his baby. With plenty of calls on his Bluetooth hands free kit, with names of his family, work colleagues and the other woman, coming up on the screen, it all makes for a gripping and frenetic 80 minutes. He also speaks to his dead father as though he was there in the car with him.

All the action takes place in and around the car of Ivan Locke. Very strange some might say. May be. But it kept this viewer gripped right on through to the end. My eyes never left the screen for a single moment. It's one of the best films I've seen so far this year at least. It's a brilliant idea and in all honesty, the film works on so many levels. It's dramatic, emotional, and completely absorbing to this reviewer anyway. I would recommend it definitely.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bad night for Mr Locke 22 April 2014
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Civil engineer drives down M1. 23 May 2014
Format:DVD
And it all happens at night...
Doesn't sound that interesting as a "pitch" to the producer but this gripping film works very well because of excellent acting from Tom Hardy and a believable script.
Locke's work and domestic life unravels as he drives south to be at the birth of his child from a brief affair. We share his tension and come to recognise that he is trying to 'do that right thing' at great cost to himself and family.
A most original and dramatic film.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Intimate and Memorable British Film 23 July 2014
Format:DVD
Locke is a British drama film written and directed by Steven Knight. The film primarily stars Tom Hardy, with Tom Holland, Olivia Colman, Andrew Scott, Ruth Wilson, Ben Daniels, and Alice Lowe all providing vocal contributions. The filmmaking itself is very audacious. The entirety of the narrative concerns construction foreman Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) in his car, who has decided to drive from Birmingham to London the day before a massive concrete pour to reach a hospital where a woman is giving birth to his child. Simultaneously Locke attempts to maintain stability whilst receiving calls from his wife, the hospital, his boss, his sons and his assistant.

Due to the restricted nature of the film, there’s a demand for a strong performance from its lead, which Hardy provides effortlessly. His performance is excellent throughout, and he excels in portraying both blunt rage and subtle interior struggles. The positioning of audiences in the car alongside of him allows for an intimate exploration into one of the most interesting characters we’ve seen so far this year. The narrative itself is restricted – audiences will learn information at the same pace as Locke, which further cements the character as a relatable and fathomable.

The film’s soundtrack subtly accompanies events, and it’s brooding and suspenseful tone is expertly used to match the tension onscreen. The film’s greatest achievement however comes from the manner of construction. The replacement of other physical characters in the film with only their voices is a stroke of genius. It intentionally permits continuation of the intimate exploration of Locke’s psyche but never hinders the genuineness of the relationships he has.

2.0 out of 5 stars YOU DON'T TRUST GOD WHEN IT COMES TO CONCRETE 20 July 2014
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The entire film takes place in a car. Not just bits and pieces, the whole thing. Locke (Tom Hardy) is driving to London to see the birth of his child by a one night stand. It will take him about 90 minutes, and like a Hemingway novel, it is done in real time. Ivan spends almost the entire trip on the phone and when he is not on the phone he talks to his deceased father.

Ivan decides he needs to do the right thing by being at the birth of his child because of his poor relationship with his father. He imagines everything will be good afterwards. He takes calls from his son watching the football match. He has told his wife what has happened, and she is not dealing with it very well. The woman giving birth has issues as he talks to her and the hospital staff. Ivan is the foreman over a large concrete pour that will happen in his absence. He has to deal with corporate while micro managing a drinking worker through his job over the phone. He does so very cool and collectively, yet things don't go his way.

The film never went anywhere. After 20 minutes or so in the car, I was groaning as I knew this was going to be another one man play. Fans of "Vehicle 19" or "Buried" should love this one too. Oh the drama.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex or nudity.
