Film Review

In a dystopian future, a morally innocent couple is sentenced to decades of imprisonment in a high security nightmare-like prison, and plan to escape. The premise of Fortress is intriguing. It kind of reminds me of the prison scenes of the 1997 film Face/Off, which were incidentally among the better scenes of that film. Unfortunately, Fortress fails to deliver.With this premise, I was expecting an elaborate escape. The kind we got used to with old classics like The Great Escape to modern series like Prison Break, only this time set in a gritty future prison where screenwriters could invent the most terrifyingly inescapable jail imaginable and the cleverest escape plans. Fortress had none of that, since the protagonists just escaped guns blazing. What's up with the yellow and red lines on the floor? I was expecting those to be major plot points… But no. No elaborate plan, no stress, the prison doesn't even seem that bad, and the build up to the escape is practically inexist…

I remember seeing Fortress and Fortress 2: Re-Entry for a bargain of £1,00 each so I though okay. I'm a fan of Lambert in the Highlander films and the plot seemed interesting so I bought them both. I watched it and loved it, it may be a low-budget film but it was great.Lambert does a great performance as John Brennick a man sent to the Fortress because he wanted another kid with his wife Karen. The law in the future says you can have only one child and that's it.Kurtwood Smith does an equally great performance as the warden Poe, who gets pleasure out of watching the inmates sexual dreams but dreams are not allowed in the Fortress. Each prisoner is implanted with a device that shocks them if they break the rules and also kill them if they misbehave too much.Jeffery Combs is good as D-Day a computer genius, his performance in Re-Animator was great too.Fortress is a great sci-fi film that wont disappoint. 10/10

In the future having more than one baby is illegal, Christopher Lambert and his trophy wife Loryn Locklin has broken this law, so they are sent to a futuristic prison where sadistic Kurtwood Smith runs things with excruciating fury of the worst degree. After proving himself as a man not to be messed with (If you catch my drift) Lambert rallies the prisoners and leads a breakout of the highest order and causes general chaos throughout. Christopher Lambert has always been hit and miss, he made the excellent Highlander, made forgettable comedies and then made the dungheap sequel everyone knows about (The Quickening, for those fortunate not to have seen it) however Fortress represents one of Lambert's best works, which is good in that it's consistently watchable and interesting through out but bad because it isn't fantastic and which speaks how good Lambert's movies in general were. Fortress however earns most of it's points with the atmosphere as Gordon (Who helmed th…
