Deadpan and dangerous
- Unlocked review by AS
Amid a clutch of well-knowns - Douglas, Malkovitch, Collette, Bloom - Noomi Rapace is the standout as she kicks, punches, stabs and shoots her way through the tortuous plot with nary a hint of emotion invading her face (of course, this may or may not have been acting). Don't look aside for one moment or you'll be lost forever in the maze of blind alleys and double crossings. Almost unique in a genre infamous for its holey plots and loose ends, the storyline is kept leak-free and all threads deftly gathered by writer Peter O'Brien. No surprise that direction is razor-sharp by Michael Apted (Gorky Park, Enigma, The World Is Not Enough). It won't come as any surprise if Ms Rapace returns to mete out further measures of mayhem in the near future.

I love spy thrillers, and this one beat all before it. Cast of characters are played excellently by the stars themselves, all perfectly cast, in my opinion.
If you love/like spy films with plenty of action, this is a must see. 10/10
I would love a Unlocked 2 please Mr Director.

Malkovitch works best

Apart from J M is a bit similar to loads of other offerings. Not quite credible here and there, and a bit near the knuckle with the terrorist input, but is there to be used i suppose, even in the name of entertainment.
