I don’t know if this movie is going to be especially good, but they seemed to have slipped a pretty epic B-action flick out of the door without much hype. Sporting an exceptionally silly premise and Guy Pearce front and center, Lockout looks to be a combination of Escape From NY, Alien, and maybe, Batman: Arkham Asylum..?
I like Guy Pearce when he’s not all stuffy and reserved, so him shoved into a Snake Plissken scenario could be fun (especially whenever Peter Stormare shows up). The effects look surprisingly effective (at least in IGN’s shitty quality player) so if the action is at all competent, we may have something here. I think the guys in our B-Action Thread may have called this right suggesting this might be a big surprise of the year.
What do you think of it?
