I rated Unlocked 5/10

5/10 some good bits but let down too often to really work.

Noomi Rapace, John malkovich, Toni Collette, michael Douglas, and er yeah Orlando Bloom. How could it fail to be compelling? Well, there’s the lame opening dialog. The linear plot. Oh, and the entirely predictable betrayal. But put those aside and ignore the ‘tie it up right at the end’ wrapper and this is worth watching.

The setting is mostly meant to be grimy, gritty london. This works well.

The not quite as you expect ‘terrorists’ have more depth and interest than typical Hollywood 2D non-characters.

Overall though it’s OK but its weaknesses make it less than convincing and rather ‘made for TV’.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
