Lockout (2012)

Director:

James Mather

Starring:

Guy Pearce

Maggie Grace

Peter Stormare

Plot:

A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

Review:

I like the idea of this movie more than I like the actual execution. There was a lot of promise, but I feel like they blew their budget on bad CG at the beginning and then the good parts were rushed.

Snow, Guy Pearce, was a total asshole and it was fun to watch. Maggie Grace’s character was underdeveloped, there were hints of stuff but it was glossed over and she was kind of boring but with potential.

I liked the idea of the prison in space. I wished it hadn’t ended with a “romance” between the two characters. I wish there was more to this world and would have enjoyed more character stuff.

3/5
