Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
"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.Manohla Dargis, New York Times, 04.12.2012
A putrid film that comes dead-weighted with hammy one-liners and a plot so silly it borders on comedy...Scott Bowles, USA Today, 04.12.2012
Mostly "Lockout" is lost in space.Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 04.12.2012
At the screening, in between laughing fits, people around me whispered, in awed tones, "B movie, 1956."David Denby, New Yorker, 04.22.2012
