Am besten passt die Beschreibung "Stunt" für Steven Knights Drama, obwohl es keine Action-Szenen gibt. Sein Film Locke ist so etwas wie ein transzendenter Stunt. Wir sehen dabei eine einzige Person, Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) - und sonst niemanden. Er fährt Auto. Die Kamera bleibt nicht immer im Mobil, konzentriert sich aber ausschliesslich auf ihn, Locke. Er fährt nachts von Birmingham nach London. Locke steigt in seinen BMW, um seiner Frau entgegenzufahren. Er ist mit ihr telefonisch verbunden, genau wie mit all den Menschen, die er fluchtartig verlässt. In Echtzeit erleben wir diese Fahrt, während der er permanent telefoniert. Schritt für Schritt erfahren wir Lockes Hintergründe und Motive dabei. Er lässt als Bauleiter seine Kollegen im Stich am Vorabend einer wichtigen Lieferung...

"Locke" by Yojimbo

An engineer makes the decision to "do the right thing" and be there with a woman with whom he had a one night stand while she gives birth to their child, with the possible result of losing everything in his life he has worked so hard to build.

Fantastically Acted and Perfectly Realised

One would think that watching a guy drive down a freeway for eight-five minutes would get boring fast, but Locke is a thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and uses it’s limiting claustrophobic setting to its advantage.

The movie is almost completely a one man show by Tom Hardy. Without his strong leading performance this movie would be total crap. He character is strong and confident in the face of emotionally charged events, and does what he thinks is right despite what everyone around him says. Tom Hardy inhabits his character perfectly.

Of course it wouldn’t matter how well acted this strange movie was if it wasn’t for the writing and direction, and they’re both spot on here. Locke as a character is fully realized, the movie is totally bent on this one character ...
