Locke is a low-budget film starring Tom Hardy. It’s a claustrophobic and intense thriller that takes place from beginning to end in a vehicle, where Ivan Locke (Tom Hardy) plays a dedicated family man who receives a phone call that sets off a series of events.
In terms of storytelling and technique, Locke is a very impressive piece of film making. Tom Hardy is absolutely amazing in the title role portraying a complex character which is both despised and respected at the same time.
Its Hardy’s excellent acting skills that make this movie, a fairly simple film with a single actor confined in one location for a long period of time. Locke is worthy for being a great indie film.
