Lockout is a futuristic thriller that is high on promise but low on follow-through. The film’s plot, a super max prison in low earth orbit, houses nearly 500 prisoners when something goes awry. Guy Pearce (star of Memento among other things) plays Agent Snow, a self-confident, cocky, low level agent who has been setup for a murder of a fellow FBI agent. He is hiding something he found out the crime scene that devolves into a jerky, chase scene where future cops fire on Snow in public places littered with collateral damage. His apprehension coincides with the future American President’s daughter, Emilie Warnock’s (Maggie Grace from Lost and Taken) humanitarian visit to MS-1, the galactic penitentiary, to ensure that human rights are being protected for these horrifying criminals. It all hits the fan when a vile prisoner steals a secret serviceman’s gun and blows up the interrogation room, giving him access to all of the controls of the prison. He promptly frees every prisoner inciting complete anarchy. Snow is offered a deal to infiltrate the prison to retrieve the President’s daughter from this “death” space station to earn his freedom. The rest of the film follows a similar plot, complete with scores of brutal and gratuitous shootings, stabbings, and violent acts in general, as Snow tries to deliver Emilie home for the President. The end result becomes a conglomeration of random movies that have already been recycled over and over again ad nauseam. There is an aspect of films like The Rock thrown in there with escaped psychopathic prisoners. Also, there’s some Star Wars/Star Trek-type scenes tossed in there to complement the fact that the prison is in space (another ridiculous idea that emphasizes the unnerving amounts of money the government might spend on a project to imprison people). There’s also a good cop, bad cop back and forth between Peter Stormare (Agent Langral) and Lennie James (Harry Shaw) which is contrived and poorly executed. It all adds up to stinky chunk of cheese overall. The acting and dialogue is another weak part of the film. Snow’s banter with everyone in the movie is constantly sarcastic and egotistical. After a while it starts to become annoying as his boring his lines which at first were funny, then kind of irritating, and finally just stupid. His incessant one-liners really grate on your nerves after the first 15 minutes. Emilie’s acting and lines weren’t much better. She plays the role of the tough-acting, frightened kitten throughout the entire film in constant need of taking care of by Pearce’s character. She is mostly a pretty flat character, despite her compassion for her fellow hostages, even the criminals, which seems unrealistic. The visual effects of MS-1, the chase scene throughout the futuristic New York City, and some of the other sights of the film are probably the highlights of the film, but even those weren’t anything to write home about. If you check your brain out at the door, you may enjoy this film, but if you are looking for a satisfying sci-fi thriller, you will leave the theater disappointed. I know I was. On a side note, I am not really sure what the title, Lockout, has to do with the film in anyway (scratching my head). Last thing, as a lesson for me (and anyone else who cares) if a movie is promoted based on who produced the film, that is the babysitter who organizes the director, writers and actors to make sure things are coming together, and a producer who’s best film was a mindless thriller that became a surprise box office hit (Taken), you should probably lower your expectations.
