Lockout(2012) Movie review – Guy Pearce is the new Dirty Harry!

From the adverts this movie looked cheap and tacky,in reality its surprisingly good.

Guy Pearce put’s in his coolest performance to date,no one has ever doubted his acting chops but in this movie he plays a bad ass with desert dry humour,I found myself laughing a lot when ever he delivered one of deadpan lines.

Maggie Grace (Taken) once again plays the girl who needs rescuing,while England’s new rising star Joseph Gilgun (This is England,Emmerdale) plays a psychotic killer to a degree that will make him a regular part of the furniture in Hollywood for the forseeable future.

Overall,this is a great action popcorn eating movie,interesting concept and funny dialogue.

8/10
