The U.S. government strong-arms a man accused of treason into rescuing the president's daughter from a maximum-security space prison that's been taken over by the inmates in a brutal riot. Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, and Peter Stormare star.
4 stars out of 5 -- "LOCKOUT's supreme weapon is Guy Pearce....St. Leger and Mather totally nail Pearce's great dry deadpan and ability to take a punch well." (Box Office)
"Pearce's is always a welcome face to see on-screen, but in LOCKOUT he gets the rare opportunity to be funny. And he is, in the style of a deadpan, wisecracking '80s action hero..." (Movieline)
"[T]hanks to a zippy pace, amusing dialogue and a winning performance from Pearce, it has one thing this genre too often lacks: a huge sense of fun." (Sight and Sound)
