Explosions without chemistry

OUT NOW! LOCKOUT lags on the special effects and the sexual tension, but it at least delivers on the action.

Australian actor Guy Pearce tries his hand at good ol’ American sci-fi, battling bloodthirsty convicts on an experimental prison planet and trying to save an annoying, would-be sultry damsel in distress, presidential daughter Emilie (Grace). Lockout delivers a lot of action, but fails to deliver the goods on the palpable sexual tension between special agent Snow (Pearce) and his charge. The poorly computer generated fighting sequences are a subpar substitute for a little tongue action.
