    This is no Fight Club or Braveheart but a VERY GOOD film all the same, if you have been getting sick of all the BADLY made movies lately you should see this movie. I don't understand where this bad rating or coming from......maybe people started liking bad movies like Transformers,Battleship or the like.

    When the protagonist's first response to being asked "What happened in that hotel room" by a government interrogator is "I was trampolining your wife", you know you're in for a treat. Snow feels similar to Drake from Uncharted, but **** and a tad bit more badass. Watching him in action is a thrill, as he takes on hundreds of convicts by himself. The mystery of the case and the events that open the film are slowly dealt out, ending in a huge reveal that makes you really think. The two main villains are well-acted, with one being a sane man who wants to negotiate with the government, the other a psychopath who is really the worst humanity has to offer. You really need to see this movie. Expand

    The movie was actually not that bad! It had some funny moments!! Which that was surprising! It had great action and great actors that were in it! And the ending is a HUGE shock!!!!!! If you like action, suspense, and some sorta funny parts then this is your type of movie!!

    If you were to watch Lockout a few months from now, at home alone, it wouldn't produce more than a shrug. Movies this bad need to be revered in public places. Go see it in a mall, and try to sneak a beer or two in with you.

    It's just not quite as much fun as it should be, despite Pearce's best efforts and some good chemistry with Grace. Unusually for an action thriller, this could have benefited from being just a little longer.

    Luc Besson's clunky, space-bound actioner apes '80s B-flick excess but skimps on all the good parts. Fans of really bad science and pixelated CGI won't be disappointed, though.
