A simple formulaic film that surprisingly delivers...,

This review is from: Lockout [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This film is surprising. That's the best word to describe it. The front covers describes it as "Die Hard in Space" - a description i laughed at, but once you start watching you kind of realise what they mean. It shares a lot of ideas and plot points of the original Die Hard, albeit with Maggie Grace along for the journey.
An above average Sci-Fi with plenty of action and good fun. It's worth a watch and if you can find it for less than £10 i suggest adding it to your collection (I paid around £5 for mine and thought it was well worth the money).
There were a few things that didn't work for me, but that's down to the poor/average dialogue in places (only a few times otherwise its above average).
The ending is a bit of a let down in my book, and also very unrealistic (and that ruins it really as the suspense of belief is done pretty well up until that point).
Reccomended for uber Sci-Fi fans and anyone who likes a good sci-fi action flick.
