An indefinable quality. The plot, which revolves around a concrete pour, and takes place entirely within the claustrophobic confines of a slate grey BMW X5, is not exactly escapist fare for those negotiating the mundanity of life under lockdown. On the eve of the biggest challenge of his career, Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) receives a phone call that sets in motion a series of events that will unravel his family, job, and soul. Love this film!!!! I kept wondering, if being there for the birth of his child was really that important.
Mainly though, it’s a one man show on the road; for the duration of the film, Hardy’s face is the only one we see on screen. By himself. Tom Hardy, Ruth Wilson and Olivia Colman star in this thriller from writer and director Steven Knight. The whole movie is Tom's character Ivan Locke in his car talking to various people on the phone while his life is falling apart. Long drawn out and very boring, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 4, 2019. Three career criminals find themselves trapped in a warehouse with the law closing in and an even worse threat waiting inside - a nigh unstoppable killer dog.
I like to think of Ivan Locke as more of an antihero – a fascinating, credible study of an unlikable, emotionally repressed modern man. Her kidnapper, Tom, tells her she will remain captive until she falls in love with him. SEE THIS FILM!!!!!
It's available to watch on TV, online, tablets, phone. It is Friday night, after all. Made even more difficult because Hardy is the only person in the film. Tom Hardy, is by far, one of the best actors working today. With this disc can watch it more. This all plays out as everything falls apart.
This is the simple and powerful story of a man trying to make himself "good."
Then, there's a large building project he's responsible for, and it's a very delicate project, so he's trying to deal with that, with one of his employees.

Ivan’s response to the chaos unfolding around him, all of which is of his own making, is exasperated but unfeeling pragmatism. Watch Locke starring Tom Hardy in this Drama on DIRECTV. The whole movie is Tom's character Ivan Locke in his car talking to various people on the phone while his life is falling apart. What I was confused by was the magnitude of that decision. Quite incredibly, he never apologises to wife Katrina (Ruth Wilson) for his infidelity. Directed by Steven Knight (EASTERN PROMISES, DIRTY PRETTY THINGS).
Don't mind them. At first, I was confused, Tom's character is basically on his way to London to be there for a woman is about to give birth to his child after a one night stand. That he’s able to create so much drama while working with so little is a feat of economy. Yet 85 minutes trapped in a car with Tom Hardy turns out to be a transfixing, transporting experience. She's trapped in a basement, her legs are broken and she can't remember who she is or how she got there. He has to keep things interesting, confined in a car, on his way to support a woman he had an affair with, who's now giving birth to his child. It's only a matter of time before he wins an Oscar. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 6, 2020, Like watching paint dry. Written like this you would wonder how anyone would think you could make film of such a situation. Through the course of a 2-hour drive, a man's entire life falls utterly apart, yet in perhaps a more important aspect, that same man finds an internal triumph.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. So I went in to see the film. The actor was not yet Mad Max or Venom, and so it’s fun watching him so fully inhabit such an unshowy role, actorly seriousness uncorrupted by star power. At first glance, Stephen Knight’s 2013 single location road movie Locke might seem like an antithetical quarantine watch. Reviewed in the United States on April 3, 2015. Tom Hardy won the LA Film Critics Best Actor award for his performance in this film, Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2016. It was a very competitive year, and many fine performances were left out, but this should been one of them.

Premiering out of competition at the Venice film festival, Locke was a hit with critics if not exactly a box office smash. If things weren’t high pressure enough, his wife and kids are waiting for him at home, and in the morning he’s supposed to oversee “the biggest single concrete pour in all of history, outside wartime”.

I still don't think it was, but the story and acting and Tom Hardy were still great.
Written and directed by Knight (whose screenwriting credits include Stephen Frears’ Dirty Pretty Things and David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises), the minimalism of its design lends itself particularly well to low-key, at home viewing. A young newlywed arrives at her husband's imposing family estate on a windswept English coast and finds herself battling the shadow of his first wife, Rebecca, whose legacy lives on in the house long after her death. Hardy is bolstered by voicework from actors whose respective celebrity pedigrees have also since grown, including Bafta-winner Olivia Colman, Spider-Man’s Tom Holland, and Fleabag’s Andrew “Hot Priest” Scott, who is particularly dynamic as Ivan’s drunken second-in-command Donal. It helps, of course, that Ivan is so specific on the page.
The tension the emotion the characterisation the sheer class of this production is incredible. His performance in this movie is outstanding and really the only reason why to watch this movie.
Well I don't think you could unless the actor playing the sole part was Tom Hardy.

Tom Hardy won the LA Film Critics Best Actor award for his performance in this film.
In work and life, “I’ll fix it” becomes his refrain. Now all I have is this phone, and this car,” Ivan mourns. I have always said you can do anything on film. The film’s sense of humour is distinctly, drily British, too.
Hindsight makes watching action hero Hardy descend into a controlled, sweaty panic (while kitted out in cozy knitwear) its own odd thrill.
The ending was kind of disappointing however, but all in all a good movie.

This film is brilliant. In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative's memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into a death-row inmate in hopes that he will complete the operative's mission. And we are talking about a character who is a rather humble not particularly intelligent man who has his own idea of what is the right thing for him to do to deal with a situation he has created.
It changed my life in as much it changed my attitude to film. Ruby wakes from a bad dream into a real life nightmare. The whole action of the film takes place during this 2 hour journey, A crisis with his job, his family life his marriage and a woman with whom he had a one night stand. A cleaver movie, when you know how they produced it, it is even better. The one and only quite remarkeble Tom Hardy, Reviewed in the United Kingdom on August 4, 2019. Every emotion, however subtle is covered here, and Hardy never, for one moment, appears as if he's acting, even though you know he is.
Which of course, makes it funnier, and all the more tragic as his iron-fisted grasp begins to slip.
