Unlocked Reviews

October 5, 2017
[Unlocked] is staid and formulaic, though well-executed.

It would be a welcome treat to watch the Alice Racine chronicles, as she travels around Europe taking out terrorist cells with her combination of interrogation and combat skills.

When it mercifully ends after 98 excruciating minutes, you still don't have a clue what it was all about.

Noomi Rapace's CIA agent character is clearly being positioned as a distaff Jason Bourne. The movie demonstrates that's easier said than done.

September 1, 2017
Neither good enough to justify the talents on display nor bad enough to at least make it perversely memorable.

August 31, 2017
A straight-ahead political thriller that fails to ratchet up the requisite tension despite its timely subject matter and (largely) effective cast.

I suppose this went down easily enough for me because I grew up with this kind of stuff, and can surrender to it as a kind of cinematic comfort food. But still.
August 31, 2017
The movie becomes a relentless series of fake-outs and reversals, as if half a season of 24 had been compressed into under two hours.

August 30, 2017
Unlocked feels like a 1970s-style conspiracy thriller, which makes it a perfect fit for the 76-year-old Apted, whose wonderfully varied career includes the James Bond flick, The World Is Not Enough.
August 30, 2017
Unlocked has got all the cliches you need and want.

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 5, 2017
It doesn't break much in the way of new ground, but that isn't exactly the point - it rattles along and Apted tackles it with gusto.

May 5, 2017
The threat of a biological attack on London by Islamic terrorists has been transformed into a supremely duff movie by the combined talents of Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom and director Michael Apted.

May 4, 2017
Apted ... brings nothing fresh to the formula besides the minor innovation of dropping an action heroine into a male-dominated field.
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.

It is, as usual, kinder not to mention the involvement of Orlando Bloom.

Unlocked rattles along at a very brisk pace and is full of action set-pieces.

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.
