LOCKOUT Movie Review

Friday, April 13th, 2012

This film is confusing not because of the storyline but because some moments will wow you and some moments will make you shake your head. Some moments are satisfying and some are quite disappointing. Probably the most surprising aspect is that Luc Besson is all over this production providing the original idea, as a screenplay contributor, and as a producer, and yet the movie as a whole falls short. For starters, the story is quite simple which isn’t necessarily a bad thing but in this case there was room for improvement (a more complex story might have helped). To top that off, whatever there is of a story is riddled with cliché. Then there’s that scene. You’ll know which one if and when you see it.
