this website is tarnished because of backward reviewers
16 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the only reason why I am not giving this movie a 10 is because nothing is perfect..I would rather watch this movie over 95 percent of garbage that is brought to modern cinema's. This movie was very well put together from the underground prison facility to the artificial intelligence from which it operates, not to mention the twisted prison director who basks in his authority, hell it makes you feel as if you are in the shoes of the main character actor Christopher Lambert(a legend in my eyes). Another reason why this movie is so incredible is that the scenario/plot is one which could be very plausible in a futuristic world, truly gripping the mind and kept me wanting more, this one is right up there with classic's like total recall and I recommend it to anyone with the ability to see.
