Unlocked stars Noomie Rapace, Orlando Bloom, John Malkovich, MichaelDouglas and Toni Collette. Evey one of them played an interestingcharacter with some great performances, especially Ms Rapace and MrMalkovic.
It didn't get very good reviews in the UK press and I don't know why.It starts out as your typical CIA thriller but gets all twisty andturny with intricate plot type stuff (which actually makes sense anddoesn't have many plot holes or really stupid antagonists) and massesof action. It was nicely scripted too with some brutal looking violencethat kept you on the edge of your seat for most of the film.

Well this is my second IMDb review after Ridley Scott's latest Alienmovie. I hated that movie because it killed off (screen) Noomi Rapace'scharacter from Prometheus in a very distinguishing/meaningless way. Assuch I decided to go to the next Rapace flick I'll have a chance tosee.
The story is not that good, but this Swedish actress has a certain"physicality" about her, which I really like. There is no love interestin the movie and I really hated the last scene. My rating might be toohigh, but this movie did not bore me as Wonder Woman did.

To tell you the truth, I did not know anything about this movie. I hadneither seen the trailer nor read the synopsis to it. So you couldimagine my surprise when we were given twist after twist through outthe whole movie. My wife and I were pretty surprised of the first twistand we were kept on guessing till the very end (Although some twistswere easier to guess than others), but nevertheless we were quiteentertained.
The main story itself was a bit stereotype about terrorists plotting todo some horrifying attack and must be stopped at all costs. But theinteresting part was actually those surprising twists. In addition, thefighting and gun shooting scenes were surprisingly good. The soundeffects particularly during the guns blazing were cool and added theelement of suspense. One more thing that I liked about this movie wasthe fact that they really used real-time method like in 24 TV seriesstarring Kiefer Sutherland.
This may not be an instant classic crime thriller movie, but Ipersonally felt that this one was not too bad. In fact it was prettyenjoyable and it even had some brief funny moments. The movie also hadsome interesting large cast of well known stars with John Malkovichwhom I dubbed as the star performer despite having limited screen time.Orlando Bloom sadly looked old in this movie (totally unlike hisperformances as Legolas that made him became a ladies' favorite). WhileNoomi Rapace started to build her own rapport as lead star ofthriller/action movies.
Now if you are a fan of a crime thriller movie with multiple twiststhrough out the movie, combined with brief action sequences every nowand then, you should give this one a try and see it for yourself. Butif you are not a fan of such genre, or if you prefer a very intelligentcrime thriller drama, then perhaps this would not really satisfy you.
