Choppy action-packed disappointment, disrespects and disputes the success of "Taken."
Imagine a mug or hot cocoa, with whipped cream trickling down the sides of the cup. That's exactly what "Lockout" is via action violence. The violence is plentiful, however it's comparatively mild, although it can often be quite menacing and brutal for a PG-13 flick. One character is a rapist, although he sets his sights on the new victim, he does't actually rape anyone in the film. Expect some additional elusive sexual innuendos, including, the lead character making a fellatio joke, a situation depending on wether or not a character is "good in bed," and a vague conversation about foreplay including one non-sexual use of the f-word. Other profanity includes moderate PG-13 langauge, ranging from several occurrences of "s--t" to a handful of uses of "b--ch," "a--," "d--k," "h--l," "d--n," and some religious profanities including "Jesus" and "oh my God" (as exclamations). The lead character smokes a cigarette throughout the movie, sometime for comic effect. Overall, "Lockout" is one of those movies that you may see only once in your entire lifetime and will indefinitely regret the experience. However, I will give it two stars rather than one, for quality, because this movie is reasonably entertaining, with lots of action violence, although it's poor visuals (it's like a video game disguised as a movie) may lead you to believe the special effects supervisors were high schoolers who have difficulty maintaining a C average.
