Guy Pearce’s cyn­i­cal anti-hero is tasked with break­ing into a fu­tur­is­tic max­i­mum se­cu­rity prison in space and res­cu­ing the US pres­i­dent’s daugh­ter (Mag­gie Grace), who has been taken hostage dur­ing a break­out led by Vin­cent Re­gan’s hard nut and his brother (Joseph Gil­gun). Direc­tors James Mather and Stephen St Leger keep the plot on the rails and Pearce never loses his cool, trad­ing quips and dis­patch­ing his foes with vi­o­lent panache. Dirs: Stephen St Leger, James Mather 2012, 15, 95min
