Tom Hardy in a car and it’s fascinating
Locke takes place in real time (85 minutes) and shows a hot guy in a cool BMW driving really fast from the midlands to London, while making a ton of phone calls. Fortunately, he uses hands-free technology (it’s a pricey BMW, after all) and because British motorways (the equivalent of our interstate highways) utilize extraordinary, almost constant lighting on the M6, the main and only seen character can check some important files as well.

Hardy has co-starred in bigger budget movies like Warrior (2011) and This Means War (2012), neither of which we saw. However, he’s made his reputation for us in ensemble prestige fare like Inception (2010), which he stopped in its tracks and left Leonardo DiCaprio looking a little dull in comparison, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011), where he held his own with Colin Firth and Gary Oldman – no easy feat. He possesses the electric gravitas of a young Connery or Finney in this part and hopefully it will distinguish him from other actors of his generation.
