‘Locke’: A guy, a car and a Bluetooth are the makings of a good melodrama | 3 stars

“Locke” is a compressed, compact melodrama that is just actor Tom Hardy in a car, driving down the M6, meeting his mistakes and the people he has let down head on — the only way he knows how. It’s a measured, compelling performance that starts out quiet and works its way toward frantic, with Hardy never losing his Stiff Upper Lip reserve.
