Movies Worth A Second Look: 'Lockout'
Why this film failed at the box office is a mystery. It is one of the best action films I've ever seen, and I've seen them all. Guy Pearce is fantastic in the lead role of a mercenary sent on a suicide mission to save the president's daughter, who somehow gets herself trapped inside a maximum security prison floating above the earth. This film takes place in the future if you haven't guessed. The chemistry between Pearce and Maggie Grace (the daughter in "Taken") is fantastic. Lots of great action, some of the funniest lines you've ever heard in an action film and twist ending that nobody sees coming.
