Intensively dramatic

This story is remarkably well told in a movie that hapens entirely in a motor car driven by a man that talks one after another on the phone dealing wth several troubles he got in his life because of a momentary fancy with a woman that he met once and whom he rendered pregnant in one night when because of his job he was away from home. He abandons his work pecisely on a moment he is most needed there because there is a very important delivery which he should have been surviving. He is fired from his job, his wife after knowing what he had done forbids him to return home where he lives with her and their two children. and breaks their marriage Everything because he gets a phone cal from the woman he had rendered pregnant telling him she is in the maternity to have a baby of whom he is the father and is very distressed and has nobody ( friends or relatives) to stay beside her. He starts then a long trip by car to the London maternity where she is because he feels morally obliged to stay beside her though he doesn't love her. He is a normal good family man after all, And the news coming from the maternity are not good. The childbirth has got a serious problem and a caeserian operation must be made.The whole movie develops itself on a succesion of phone calls some of them afflictive and intensively dramatic that he must attend or call and talk to, to or from the pregnant woman, the maternity doctor and nurse, or to or from his wife, or to or from his job, trying to solve on the phone all the problems that arise. But he gets informed that he is fired. Despite the fact that the whole movie runs all the time only with one person driving a car and talking on the phone it is full of overwhelming suspense till the end.

A well written script which delivers on many levels.

I'll start by stating the obvious, that this is an unusual movie because it's setting is restricted merely to the interior of a car, which could give the impression that it could be quite boring. In actual fact this movie delivers more suspense than many other so called thrillers that I've seen in recent years. It's a testament to the importance of good dialogue, and a well written script which delivers on many levels. I admire the character of Ivan Locke because of how he handles the many situations in the movie, it conveys a strong message in anger management, and morality. When he makes the choice to do the right thing, even though he ends up pushed into a corner he still remains calm and finds the best solution. I think it's a really good message to present in the movie, which is what compelled me to write this review. I will however say that I think the movie rates a bit lower on rewatchability, other than that it was a great watch.

Real , amazing.

For me, 90-minute movie is always a good sign and when it can show you much in those 90 minutes ... I love it. Tom Hardy in role of Ivan Locke, builder creator who goes for a ride of his life. Single actor in this movie is enough to make you feel comfortable for 84 minutes.

I'm imagining Locke's ride on the highway as life, because life is crazy drive of both bad and good decisions, of which it depends on how fast we will drive and when we will turn right from that highway.

This movie shows us great internal conflict of person who drives, professionalism and privacy, emotions and power, family and job.

The only movie that I watched and it' similar to this one, is Phone Booth with Colin Farrell.The difference is that Ivan Locke is not in death danger and we don't feel fear, if he is gonna die or not.And I like that.Life is not Hollywood.I always respect scenes in movies which shows us real-life scenes. And this movie is full of it.This movie is full of great dialogues.

Locke is really interesting personality.His determined stand, integrity, sincerity shows us how he is really strong, powerful men even when he has an outburst of rage, trying to prove to himself that he is better than his father.

But, Locke is just one car on that highway.Locke is just another man with problems and decisions and at the end, he will get out from that highway. Straight nihilistic.

9,5/10
