Amazing sci-fi action movie with a retro feel!! The story is sweet and simple and probably predictable but that matters not as you will have so much fun with this movie, it feels really oldschool action like something the 80s would have thrown at us with Bruce Willis back in the day. Guy Pearce is a quality actor who plays a fun character in a ridiculous situation in space saving the presidents daughter from thousands of the worlds most dangerous criminals, all good fun, lots of great action and plenty of cheesy one liners, make sure you check it out.

Poor Guy Pearce. As if having to play a Mr Burns in Prometheus wasn't enough for one year, he also had to star in Lockout, the story of a framed CIA agent, Snow, who must earn his freedom by rescuing the president's daughter (Maggie Grace) from an orbit prison. Sound familiar? Yes, it is basically Escape From New York in space.
It's enjoyable enough, with Pearce well suited to the role of wise cracking cop, but too full of ham fisted one liners and derivative ideas to be anything more than a shallow forgery of far better sci-fi thrillers.
With two directors attached to the movie it is obviouse that there was conflicting interest when in production. The film has good ideas but none explored and probably let on the cutting room floor, the effects look cheap, the action unoriginal and the overall effect of the film was forgettable and actually surprised this got a release in the cinema as this version has direct to DVD written all over it. Maybe one day the directors cut will surface,but as this chopped version stands it's a case of watch and forget in 'T' Minus two hours. A great ptiy as with a good actor like Guy Pearce this could have been great.

 Instant Classic

Again Joseph Gilgun delivers yet another outstanding performance. I have now watched this film over 20 times and it does not get old. It captivates you from the start with Guy Pearse as the awesome anti-hero "Snow". To me this is an instant classic.

'snow' ( pearce ) has been wrongly accused of treason and the killing of a fellow agent and faces a long prison sentence.
the presidents daughter 'emile' is visiting a penal institution for dangerous prisoners which is situated many miles above earth, she is investigating the treatment of the in-mates on 'm.s.i'
while she is there a massive prisoner breakout takes place, 'emily' is now a hostage.
debating how to rescue her and restore order is discused by the authorities rather than a full-scale attack which would allmost certainly see 'emily' killed, it is suggested that one man should try to rescue the presidents daughter.
the imprisoned 'snow' becomes the obvious choice with his no-nonsense approach, he is reluctant believing it to be a suicide mission, however an agent tells him that 'mace' is a prisoner on 'm.s.i'
'mace' maybe the only man alive that can help 'snow' prove his innocents.........'snow' takes on the mission.
this is a really good action movie set some way into the future, well worth watching with it's impressive special effects.
