Lockout follows a falsely convicted ex- government agent (Guy Pearce), whose one chance at obtaining freedom lies in the dangerous mission of rescuing the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from rioting convicts at an outer space maximum security prison.
There’s something delightfully old school about futuristic prison movie, Lockout. The film comes from the pen of Luc Besson, and sees Guy Pearce as Snow, the usual framed innocent man that the movies like to present us with. Through a serious of story hoops, Snow agrees to head off to an orbiting prison by the name of MS One, to rescue the daughter of the president. It’s probably best not to look too closely at the story, to be fair, as it doesn't get much more plausible than that.
Lockout does work, though. In fact, it works particularly well. Pearce is an excellent action lead, and directors James Mather and Stephen St Leger keep things pacey, stretch their budget well, and know how to put together an action sequence. The result of this is a film that’s thumping good fun, that’s derivative certainly, but entertaining nonetheless.
The disc is bolstered by some welcome extra material. It’s not tricky to see why the unreleased scenes didn’t make the final cut, but they’re no less interesting for that. Promotional interviews are also included. But it’s the behind the scenes supplements that are the most interesting, especially when the focus turns to the MS One floating prison, and how it was put together. It all adds to a solid package, and a wise choice of film for a relaxing night in front of the telly. --Jon Foster

He must undertake a dangerous mission to rescue the President's daughter from rioting convicts.
At an outer space maximum-security prison.......
So basically the film is the rejected 'Escape From Space' idea of sorts they had in the late nineties, and Guy Pearce is a mix of McClane, Plisskin, and Ryback, but at least the film is fun.
Coming from the house of Besson, if you follow his brand of action films, right back to Kiss Of the Dragon, you know what to expect, and this is no different.
The effects are pretty lame, but this film is all about the bad guys, and the banter between Snow and The first Daughter.
The script can be poor at times, but the one-liners are something that Willis would be proud of, and the film is claustrophobic enough to keep it on the right side of tense.
It's flawed in many ways, and as i've already said, you may get deja vu seeing this, because it's 'inspired' by so many films.
But as those films are very god anyway, this passes the time with ease.
To start with it's quite obvious from reading the synopsis alone that this is a reworking of the classic Escape From New York with Kurt Russell. None the less, Lockout turns out to be a very watchable brutish action movie, but with some intelligence thrown in there, in the shape of the sub plot rumbling underneath the main events. The action is fast, furious, brutal & smart in places, but there are a couple of far fetched moments that even the most hardened of action fans may raise an eyebrow too. The CGI & special effects used are pretty good on the whole with some exceptions here & there, but, considering the budget worked with it's not surprising. Some interesting ideas used in places, no doubt thanks the man who came up with the idea of the film, Luc Besson. But he will undoubtedly be pleased with the work that directors & co writers James Mather & Stephen St. Leger have managed to produce, in keeping with Besson's fast & furious action style.Read more ›
the presidents daughter 'Emile'(Maggie Grace) is visiting a penal institution for dangerous prisoners which is situated many miles above earth, she is investigating the treatment of the in-mates on 'Maximum.Security Prison One' (M.S.One)
While she is there a massive prisoner breakout takes place, 'Emily' is now a hostage.
Debating how to rescue her and restore order is discussed by the authorities rather than a full-scale attack which would almost certainly see 'Emily' killed, it is suggested that one man should try to rescue the presidents daughter.
The imprisoned 'Snow' becomes the obvious choice with his no-nonsense approach, he is reluctant believing it to be a suicide mission, however an agent tells him that 'Mace'(Tim Plester) is a prisoner on 'M.S.One'
'Mace' maybe the only man alive that can help 'Snow' prove his innocents.........'Snow' takes on the mission.
this is a really good action movie set some way into the future, well worth watching with it's impressive special effects.
