MediaStinger: "Is it Taken in space? No. I’m just glad it’s not the disappointing Unknown in space. Luc Besson’s latest production, the sci-fi action thriller Lockout, is comparable to his previous, Colombiana. But what made me like it over Colombiana is Lockout‘s reckless audacity and sheer ridiculousness. It’s like a cheap county fair ride that’s an obvious and janky rip-off of a Six Flags attraction, but the bottom line is it’s fun as hell while still managing to deliver the thrills."
