Directed by Michael Apted.
Starring Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, Toni Collette, Michael Douglas and John Malkovich.
Former CIA interrogator Alice (Noomi Rapace) is working undercover in a London community centre. She’s reluctant to go back to her old job because of her failure to “unlock” a suspect, which resulted in terrorist attack which killed dozens of innocent people. But the apparent prospect of a chemical attack on London draws her back in – under false pretences. Now she has to track down who’s really behind it.
Just a few minutes into Michael Apted’s Unlocked, a terrible cloud of deja vu descends. We’ve been here time and time again, but this time familiarity doesn’t just breed contempt, it does nothing to make the film memorable. The sad truth about the latest from one of Britain’s best directors is that it’s forgettable, sub-Spooks tosh.
