If you took Escape from New York and gave it a Sci-Fi touch-up you would probably end up with Lockdown. That’s not a bad thing, since I really enjoyed EfNY when I saw it as a kid. I thought Lockdown was a fun action film. It doesn’t push the boundaries, but what it does, it does pretty well.
Guy Pierce‘s character (Snow) is actually pretty similar to Kurt Russell‘s character (Snake Plissken). Mouthy and cool. Nice also to see Joseph Gilgun from the This is England film and TV spin-offs.
Overall I would say lightweight, but quite enjoyable.
I’ve been playing catch-up this week. Of the four films I’ve seen I think I enjoyed this one the most.

EfNY & EfLA – just about the best movie ever … right behind the expendables of course 😉
Not to be picky, but it’s actually Snake Plissken (http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0009034/).
Peter: Corrected it.
