Enjoyable But Idiotic
21 March 2013 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Locker 69 is an enjoyable but idiotic B feature that was made in 20 days for very little money. While the film is running, it holds the audience's attention with numerous plot developments and mysterious characters. When the film is over, the absurdity of the story is glaringly obvious.

A shady business man has perpetrated a nasty fraud that has resulted in the death of large numbers of people. His business partner has kept evidence of the fraud which he keeps in locker 69 in a security vault. He has threatened the fraudster with exposure in the event of any further dishonest dealing. The fraudster suddenly receives death threats. He decides to fake his own murder in a plan both to get his hands on the evidence in locker 69 and to trick whoever is threatening him. The "murder" is investigated by the police, a private detective and a journalist.

The narrative of Locker 69 makes no sense at all and ideally should have been "re-imagined" by the screenwriter. Certainly the journalist is a character the film can do without. Nevertheless the film proceeds very briskly and there is not a dull moment anywhere. Edward Underdown is very good as the fraudster and the little known Clarissa Soltz makes a strong impression in her tiny part. The photography and lighting are surprisingly good for a movie shot so quickly and the tight editing makes sure no-one in the audience will be bored.
