Michael Apted although at some points got us lost, but he managed to get us back on track. Unlocked was an awesome movie with series of unveiling to do. There was a lot of unlocking of several secrets and cabals within the well know secret service agent.
Noomi Rapace known in the movie as Alice Racine, being a well-seasoned CIA agent, was really good with her role. She was known for drilling terrorists until she got the useful information she wanted. It turned out to be that she was the only good man standing among the cabal and just couldn’t find someone to trust, it seemed like she moved from one issue to another, with no hope of a sooner end. The huge surprise for most of us was that the men people she worked with and trusted were all kinds of corrupt and were using her to achieve their evil purpose. She really did put up a good fight and to our excitement and as usual ended on a very good note with all the evil leaders going down and she surviving and getting reinstated.
The idea of the movie was for Alice to be strong and fast enough to unlock all the secrets of a terrorist group, then destroy them and abort a lethal biological attack on the citizens of London.

Unlocked was okay and the suspense got me thinking, I did enjoy the movie, but it didn’t totally kill it for me. They tried to put up a good show with brilliant actors and a storyline but it only scored a 6/10 in my heart.
Not a full recommendation but see it if you have the time.
