In Unlocked, Michael Douglas plays a high ranking CIA agent who brings back a protege (Noomi Rapace) to help him take down a terrorist. Along with the aid of an ex-soldier (Orlando Bloom), the trio attempt to stop a biological attack on London. Michael Apted, director of the James Bond flick The World Is Not Enough, is behind the camera.
“I love stories where you can’t guess the ending and this particular quality of Unlocked I liked a lot” said Douglas who cites the 7 up documentary series and Coal Miner’s Daughter as among his favorite Apted movies. “What separates it as a spy thriller is this amazing female lead. I don’t think I’ve seen any in the genre that has had a female lead, in particularly as one as strong as Noomi both as an actress and as an action lead.”
