A typical Luc Besson flick, Lockout features Guy Pearce and the chick from Taken (also a Besson venture). Lots of action, lots of witty repartee, a sci-fi backdrop and very little in the way of complexity when it comes to the plot, are the main selling points of the film. However, unlike Taken, which is also a rescue-flick, Lockout does not have an edgy feel to the mission, and is strictly a Hollywood-y entertainment adventure.

John Carter

John Carter is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' (of Tarzan fame) 1917 novel, A Princess of Mars. I haven't read the book. However, keeping the age of the story in mind, this movie is highly entertaining, if very Hollywood-sy. The story is a nice blend of sci-fi and fantasy with a decent plot and a nice twist at the end. The action is mostly good, the humour mostly funny and the clichés mostly bearable. But the acting could have been better.
