Lockout

Take no prisoners.


Lockout
The basic setup has been done to death, so Besson added a little twist. A falsely accused man is given a chance to redeem himself by rescuing the President's daughter, who has been taken hostage on a visit to a prison. The twist? The prison is in space, orbiting Earth. Our hero goes up to save the day and return to back to Earth, Mission Accomplished, in a way you just won't believe ...

C. Fuchs quote iconAs it stands, Lockout is too derivative, slapdash and uninvolving to be any kind of memorable.

Tomatometer quote iconGuy Pearce does the best he can with what he's given, but Lockout is ultimately too derivative and shallow to build on the many sci-fi thrillers it borrows from.
