Vanity FairVanity Fair

"(An) irritating heist comedy."

The New York TimesThe New York Times


Wall Street JournalWall Street Journal

"This movie would be DOA without Ejiofor and Hathaway’s romantically volatile chemistry."

"It feels stagy, claustrophobic, and overacted."

Associated PressAssociated Press

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"Must have seemed like quite the wheeze when greenlit, but now has all the appetising novelty of your eighth Zoom of the day."

"I’m wary in general of making any definitive pronouncements about Locked Down, whose charms and irritations (and it has its share of both) are largely a matter of timing and perspective."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Mildly watchable..."


"Maybe this all works, accidentally or not, as a time capsule of very contemporary irritation."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club
