Lockout is genre all the way. The film wears its colors proudly, but it also, alas, wears out its welcome. show more
Directors Stephen St. Leger and James Mather fill the film's obvious narrative gaps with enough witty banter and tongue-in-cheek humor for audiences to overlook the subpar special effects used throughout. show more
Lockout is derivative and ridiculous and a good time, provided you can turn off higher brain functions along with any other part of you that might want to lodge a complaint about liberal borrowing from better movies. show more
Wow this was a great big bit of rubbish. Bad acting and a bad plot cannot be fixed with average special effects. We are supposed to believe Snow is a real tough guy, in the opening scenes he is getting punched in the face with massive blows, about 15 times; nope not a scratch on him. Go ahead and hit your friend like that a few times, see if his cheek bones and jaw arenâ€™t shattered. All of Snowâ€™s silly one liners fall flat and as he ambles through the space jail he just comes off as a bumbling dweeb, not some cool Special Forces dude that can get you out of any jamb. And we are expected to believe that a government that could put a multibillion dollar jail into orbit would have such lax security that one mentally challenged inmate can break loose and free all the prisoners and take over the space jail in about 5 mi
Guy was funny with one lines! Really good movie.
