Movie Reviews

  • when things finally get going but in a half-hearted, plausibility-free way that really makes you feel the pandemic sucking the fun out of moviemaking; A movie shouldn't rely on Hathaway and Ejiofor to shell-game your attention away from the movie itself
    1.5 of 4 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • Steven Knight's script balances perfectly with Doug Liman's direction to capture the realities of quarantine in a heist-movie confection
    4 of 5 by Todd Gilchrist [What to Watch ]
  • light and good-natured; "Locked Down" doesn't fully surrender to its context.The film might lose a lot of its charge if and when we ever get this virus under control, but Steven Knight's script uses the pandemic as more of a setting than a subject
    Review rate : B by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • for anyone watching it right now, the movie has a message that can resonate; "Locked Down", at times, generates an uneasy mixture of intimacy and showiness, yet it's a kick to watch a couple of actors who are this terrific pull out all the stops
    by Owen Gleiberman [Variety ]
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anne Hathaway make a great pairing; "Locked Down" both incorporates and comments upon the realities of the moment. It might not be the first movie to explore life in the pandemic, but it is, for now, the best one
    by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap ]
  • an affluent couple plot an audacious diamond heist in the Covid movie absolutely no one needed; A few laughs but this felt completely misguided; Making a heist film about the well-off during a pandemic is absolutely ludicrous
    1 of 5 by Erik Nielsen [Little White Lies ]
  • a shockingly early yet entirely convincing contender for worst film of the year; As a heist movie it's willfully unexciting and fully incompetent, with a barely comprehensible and bizarrely unmotivated scheme riddled with glaring plot-holes
    1 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • "Locked Down´╗┐" is an average drama that relies on the strengths of its two lead actors to help elevate it above its various shortcomings; Even with the strong lead performances, "Locked Down" doesn't have much to offer
    2.5 of 5 by Chris Agar [ScreenRant ]
  • "Locked Down" may be saying things most of us have already figured out for ourselves during quarantine, but the talent behind and in front of the camera is compelling to watch; It's a winning demonstration of how to properly execute pandemic cinema
    3 of 5 by Robert Kojder [Flickering Myth ]
