DVD: Lockout (15)


Set in 2079AD, Lockout is the sort of sub-Escape from New York sci-fi hogwash that's ideal for a long-haul flight.

Guy Pearce thoroughly enjoys himself as the tough guy who is cajoled into rescuing the president's daughter (Maggie Grace) from escaped felons (led by two deranged Scotsmen, played with relish by Joseph Gilgun and Vincent Regan) on a high-security outer space prison. A guilty pleasure.
