Lockout

JOY REVIEW

Lockout stars Guy Pearce at some point in the future where there is a prison colony in space, in which everybody is given some kind of inoculation that makes them sleep until their sentence has been carried out; so they’re in suspended animation. The problem is that the president’s daughter went to check on whether or not this was really a legitimate treatment, and she’s taken prisoner, so we have to send Guy. Guy looks terrific in this. He’s all bulked up and he’s got an American accent, and he has kind of a snotty attitude, and I just thought this was a really fun movie — somewhat unexpectedly. So Guy Pearce as action hero: Yay. Four stars.
