Product Description

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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

Set in the not too distant future, Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential) stars as a wisecracking government agent, Snow, who is wrongly convicted of murder & selling state secrets. But he may just have a way to redeem himself, as the presidents daughter Emilie Warnock (Maggie Grace -Taken) who was visiting a maximum cryostatis prison in space to check on the well being of the inmates, is smack dab in the middle of a prison riot. Only one person would be crazy enough to go in there, Snow!

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.

"From an idea by Luc Besson"! Ha! As Jules points out, John Carpenter should sue. I'm not a Besson fan at all and reckon "The 5th Elephant" a dreadful piece of tosh so Besson fans can stop reading now. But I do like a good cheesy action movie with some snappy one-liners ("Die Hard", "Demolition Man") and this delivers the goods. I have some reservations (you could skip to the final sentence now).

If you can tolerate the frenetic opening sequence which looks like a cut scene from a computer game and really isn't necessary to the plot, it's worth sticking with the movie. For anybody with an elementary knowledge of science - put that stuff back on the shelf - won't be required today. The plot is absolutely colandered (A linguistic first, I fancy) full of holes but it doesn't really matter; this movie is a rattling bit of popcorn (can't abide the stuff) fun. Pearce makes Snow an agreeably laconic, been-there-done-that hero, and he is well-paired with the President's daughter (underpowered Dad, though). The outer space sets are impressive techno-rubbish and it all bowls along at a breakneck speed.

The main villains are - hurrah! - Scots (See what happens if you leave the Empire!)and the sub-villains are straight out of "Mad Max"/"Escape from New York". There's a vague attempt to make a point about the future of incarceration and the evils of big corporations but I don't think their hearts were really in this stuff. And , there's a Mc (or Mac - those Scots!) Guffin involving a missing briefcase and a mystery code that a 4 year old could crack - sometimes you have to confirm an audience's prejudices - which makes for a feeble final section - and some of the CGI is weak...but...

To sum up. You've seen it all before - but if you liked it before, you'll enjoy this.

Bought this as I quite like Guy Pearce and the science fiction plot looked interesting. It reminded me a little of the 'Harry 20' stories from the comic book 2000AD. But this is a poor action movie, with little suspense or spectacle. At a certain point you realise it's a stinker but you've watched too much not to let it finish. But then you wish you had that time back to do something else instead. Think about Christan Slater's movie Stranded, with it's Lego-like 'moonbase', or the tv series True Blood or Heroes when you first got that sinking feeling that something has gone badly wrong. That happens in Lockout about an hour in.

If you've seen the trailer then you've basically seen the best bits. Guy Pearce's character is fun and it's a good action flick but falls dismally away at the end.
Worth 90 mins with a couple of beers on a Saturday night, as long as you can get it at a greatly reduced price!

Amazing sci-fi action movie with a retro feel!! The story is sweet and simple and probably predictable but that matters not as you will have so much fun with this movie, it feels really oldschool action like something the 80s would have thrown at us with Bruce Willis back in the day. Guy Pearce is a quality actor who plays a fun character in a ridiculous situation in space saving the presidents daughter from thousands of the worlds most dangerous criminals, all good fun, lots of great action and plenty of cheesy one liners, make sure you check it out.

'Snow' ( Guy Pearce ) has been wrongly accused of treason and the killing of a fellow agent and faces a long prison sentence.
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.
