The film is made less awful, bordering into watchable, thanks solely to it's cast -- though they admittedly mostly phone in their performances.

The type of movie that, much like the content covered in this spy thriller, will go unseen by most and forgotten by those that saw it, as if it never even happened.
September 20, 2017
Great lead. Great premise. Utterly stupid.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Unlocked is a weak film and one in a genre (or sub-genre) that is rapidly filling up with weak films.

With an action-fuelled trailer and an all-star cast, Unlocked showed a lot of early promise. However, the reality of the situation is quite the contrary.

... the execution fails to utilise its blessings and deliver the necessary tension, which is most expected from a star-studded London-based spy thriller such as this.

Islamic State, MI5, a deadly virus and a neck-tattooed Orlando Bloom: screenwriter Peter O'Brien throws everything at the wall in this derivative thriller. Nothing sticks.

Unlocked rattles along pacily enough, but at the advanced age of 76 the director ought to know by now that when you can't trust anyone in a film, you stop trusting the film itself.

May 8, 2017
The topical Europe-hopping plot includes a reasonable amount of action. But the film is unevenly paced, predictably plotted and the moments of broad humour dilute the under-powered tension.

There is a good film to be made about the current socio-political climate, this just isn't it.

May 5, 2017
Michael Apted's efficient but unstylish film has only a prestigious cast of supporting slummers - Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, John Malkovich - to distinguish it from a "Spooks"-style TV outing.
May 7, 2017
Release schedule filler.
August 28, 2017
With its dull mixture of indifferently staged exposition and action, it suggests a primitive side-scrolling video game.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
May 4, 2017
There's nothing much to shout about in a pedestrian yarn that resembles a slightly above average episode of small-screen fare like Spooks.

May 4, 2017
The film's attempt to combine mainstream action and timely social realism results in the kind of sticky mess that should have been easily avoided.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 25, 2017
Preposterous, nonsensical, but fun nonetheless, Unlocked frustrates as much as it entertains.
May 2, 2017
A serviceable thriller, until Orlando Bloom shows up as a mysterious ex-military bruiser with a Cockney accent and things go sideways, fast.

August 31, 2017
Faced with tough competition on screens big and little, but doesn't pursue anything novel or ferocious enough to make a deep impression.

Rapace cuts the mustard but the rest of the film is forgettable.

September 1, 2017
Remarkable only because it casts a woman in a traditionally male role, this stagnant thriller is dull and convoluted, alternating between numbing exposition and stale, creaky action scenes.
