Unlocked stars Noomie Rapace, Orlando Bloom, John Malkovich, Michael Douglas and Toni Collette. Evey one of them played an interesting character with some great performances, especially Ms Rapace and Mr Malkovic.
It didn't get very good reviews in the UK press and I don't know why. It starts out as your typical CIA thriller but gets all twisty and turny with intricate plot type stuff (which actually makes sense and doesn't have many plot holes or really stupid antagonists) and masses of action. It was nicely scripted too with some brutal looking violence that kept you on the edge of your seat for most of the film.
