"Lockout" is meat-and-potatoes filmmaking at its most basic.

A putrid film that comes dead-weighted with hammy one-liners and a plot so silly it borders on comedy...
Critic Score: 2.5/5

"Lockout"...is...as dopey an entertainment as imaginable, but it's also a reminder that the film's star, Guy Pearce, has always had great screen magnetism, to which he has now added a bedrock of muscle. Also: he can act.
Critic Score: 3/5

I kept waiting for Nicolas Cage to show up. Or Katherine Heigl. Or, god forbid, both.

Lockout is a largely half-hearted effort in which some of the major set pieces are so indifferently executed that they literally look exactly like sequences out of video games.
Critic Score: 2/5
