Ivan Locke, a dedicated family man and successful construction manager, receives a phone call on the eve of the biggest challenge of his career that sets in motion a series of events that threaten his carefully cultivated existence.
Ivan Locke's cold was written into the script because actor Tom Hardy had a cold during production.
I am trying to do the right thing.
The film follows the journey of Locke towards London from an unspecified location some 90 minutes north of London. However, the construction site at the beginning of the film, and hence at the start of the journey, is actually the Broadgate Circle development in the City of London, also known as 5 Broadgate. This is evidenced by the fact that Liverpool Street station is clearly visible in the background of the wide shot, along with several lesser-known but easily identifiable buildings such as 100 Liverpool Street. Locke's car is initially parked just north of the site, at the corner of Appold Street and Sun Street in London.
