Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Lockout is a futuristic action movie with almost constant fighting and chasing, as well as shooting, dead bodies, and some blood. The main male character is a cocky scoundrel who treats the main female character with disrespect (including punching her), even though she's shown to be brave. She winds up becoming a damsel in distress and a romantic interest for him; as a result, there's sexual tension and innuendo between them. Language includes one "f--k," many uses of "s--t," and more. The main character also regularly smokes cigarettes, mainly -- it seems -- to annoy others.

Sexual Content

Some strong sexual innuendo. After a fall, a woman lands with her face in a man's crotch. He makes a fellatio-related joke. A man talks about "trampolining" someone's wife. "Foreplay" is mentioned. And the female lead makes a comment about whether the male lead is "good in bed." Other moments of sexual tension between the male and female lead. A character talks about "taking it out of my pants" while in church.


Violence is constant, though not extreme. There's some blood and almost constant fighting and chasing. The most gruesome things, like an exploding head, happen off screen. Many characters are shot and killed or die in other ways. The main character grabs a knife by its blade, slicing his hand. One character is a rapist, and though he sets his sights on his new victim, he doesn't actually rape anyone during the movie. The main male character punches the main female character in the face and generally mistreats her. A convict's face is burned on a piece of hot metal. There's a headless corpse, and a character gets a hypodermic needle injected into their eye. The images of convicts developing psychosis from their deep freeze can be a bit scary.


"F--k" is used once, and "s--t" many times. Other words include "bitch" and "son of a bitch," "a--hole," "hell," "ass," "crap," "damn," "goddamn," and "d--k," as well as "Jesus" and "oh my God" (as exclamations).

Social Behavior

The two main characters triumph over difficult odds and escape alive, though they fail in their efforts to save any other innocent people. Characters argue about whether the president's daughter should take priority over any other civilians in a dangerous situation; the answer appears to be "yes."
