The film deals upon a happy family (Christopher Lambert and Loryn Locklyn), then Lambert is imprisoned because another son was born and in the future it's prohibited. Prison's chief ( Kurtwood Smith) is a villain who punishes to inmates with tortures and using cruel technological security measures. Christopher Lambert along with other prisoners (Jeffrey Combs,Vernon Wells and Tom Towles) will face off against the director and his henchmen .
The picture blends suspense ,violence,drama,action pace,struggles and a little bit of gore when the murders happen. The final confrontation between the starring and baddies is stimulating and has some extraordinary surprises.
Runtime film is adequate ,it is fast moving and is neither boring, nor tiring but bemusing. The motion picture obtained enough success and originated a second part which is similar to previous with the difference that is developed in a space station prison and the cast is similar besides of Pam Grier.
The film will appeal to Science fiction fans and action-packed enthusiasts. Rating 6/10 ,average.
