Ivan Locke (played by Tom Hardy) is a dedicated family man and a successful construction manager. After receiving a phone call as he was leaving a construction site, Ivan sets off driving the two hours from Birmingham to London. It turns out that Ivan Locke has been bearing a secret that he has been trying to keep from his family and his job in order to keep his world intact.
For the duration of 1hr and 25mins you may feel one of two things:
- This is a film about a some guy driving in his car for 1hr 25mins (2 hours in the film’s plot) simply making some phone calls…
- You will be grateful for and simply love how different this film really is.
Yes, it is a movie where a man is driving in his car for 1hr 25mins making a number of phone call on his car speakerphone on one very stressful night.
The film is amazing simply because it is different and as always Tom Hardy provides an outstanding performance in this Drama. Even though the film never leaves the car, I was very happy to stay where I was and find out how Locke’s night will eventually turn out. This film comes highly recommended to those who also enjoyed such films such as Phonebooth or Buried.
