I had high hopes with this movie, considering the fact that Tom Hardy is an amazing actor. I was looking forward to one and a half hour of an awesome monodrama. His performance didn't let me down, it was heartwarming to watch him and only him on the screen, however, I feel like the drama could have been more intense. The plot is a great idea but for me the movie was lacking a bit of background information, especially regarding Locke's father and childhood, why he was so determined to get to Bethan and the baby, etc. The ending pissed me off at first, I wanted to find out more things, but as it sunk in, I felt like it's the perfect way to end the intense story. Also, I adored Donal's character throughout the whole movie.

The score was absolutely terrible and ruined scenes that would have been better without. Tom Hardy was great, but his character is an idiot that created every single problem he faced in the movie. The style would have impressed me if it were the first movie that had been presented in such a minimalist way, but there have been many other movies that have done the same and been better.
