A good story and great visual effects
5 March 2007 | by (China) – See all my reviews

A Chinese saying goes like this: A crying baby would sooner get his mother's milk. The major worth-seeing plot in Lockdown is not the boring usual fight between Clark and Lana, not Sheriff Nancy Adams being shot by her "girl", not even the two traitors wanting to see the spaceship. What really catches the eye is Lana's obscure emotional shift to Lex, who's seriously injured by the effort of trying to save his lover with his "Flesh and Blood" body. Lana is obviously touched by his courage and perhaps some truthfulness apparently absent in Clark that she is craving for.

I was touched, however, by a scene in which Clark speeds through the big fire and runs onward with the unconscious Lana in his arms, great fire closing in. Great visual effects and irony are happening here. I think our heroin will make her own decision who should deserve more love. Clark, showing up almost every time saving her, but unscathed? No, he is always silent with no smart words to cover up his secrets. Lex, who's risking his life trying to save someone he loves? Well, yes, he does look nicer with little distinction between his true words and lies, doesn't it? In other words, he is the crying baby long trained to be exquisite for his words.

I give nine stars to this great presentation of the "crying baby" philosophy.
