Locke (2013)

My Rating : 5/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “Tom Hardy is undeniably an acting powerhouse and this one man show is absolute proof!”

Written and directed by Steven Knight (Dirty Pretty Things), Locke tells the adrenaline-fueled story of one man’s frantic race against time. Tom Hardy and Tom Holland star in a film produced by Paul Webster and Guy Heeley.


In Locke, Tom Hardy plays a man who drives from Birmingham to Croydon in a BMW. He makes the journey in the late evening, setting out at around 8pm, and the traffic is fairly light. The man’s name is Ivan Locke. He’s a married construction engineer, with a thick beard and dependable jumper, and he spends most of the trip talking on his in-car telephone. We hear both ends of each call, although no other actor appears on screen.


Around half of his conversations are about the logistics of pouring concrete. Locke is one of the most nail-biting thrillers of the year. At first, as Ivan’s car pulls away from a building site, the soundtrack ticking like a stopwatch, you wonder if Locke might be one of those films in which an ordinary man finds himself suddenly surrounded by an action movie. In fact, it’s the opposite: the crisis is deeply ordinary, and its the man that drives the action.
