Luc Besson (Director of The Fifth Element) presents this futuristic thriller about a renegade CIA agent (Guy Pearce, PROMETHEUS) who is betrayed by his government and sentenced to 30 years frozen in a cryonic chamber 50 miles above Earth. The only way to avoid serving time is a suicide mission – overcome a gang of ruthless prisoners and rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace, Taken).
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Guy Pearce does the best he can with what he's given, but Lockout is ultimately too derivative and shallow to build on the many sci-fi thrillers it borrows from.
Little White Lies

Outer-space rescue adventure has lots of action violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Lockout is a futuristic action movie with almost constant fighting and chasing, as well as shooting, dead bodies, and some blood. The main male character is a cocky scoundrel who treats the main female character with disrespect (including punching her), even though she's shown to be brave. She winds up becoming a damsel in distress and a romantic interest for him; as a result, there's sexual tension and innuendo between them. Language includes one "f--k," many uses of "s--t," and more. The main character also regularly smokes cigarettes, mainly -- it seems -- to annoy others.
