The Lockout 2012 7 out of 10
Lockout is basically Escape from New York on a space station. The story is pretty much a rip-off of the famous John Carpenter movie with Guy Pearce in the lead role previously played so well by Kurt Russell. The movie is an effective and interesting attempt at remaking Escape to New York and Guy Pearce does an excellent job as the guy sent into the prison to rescue the President's daughter. Maggie Grace does a good job in the role of the daughter as well. The film has some good action sequences and was a fun ride and only suffers when compared to John Carpenter's film, which had such a great soundtrack. This film is missing that quality soundtrack. If you are up to a fun new look on the themes from Escape From New York ---check this out, or skip it and just watch John Carpenter's superior version.
