Expect more of the same.
28 April 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Here we go again with another low-rent action flick I despise greatly of. The story concerns of a new maximum security prison, the perfect setting for terrorists to start another hostage crisis. This is typical Fred Olen Ray garbage, but hey, this isn't an adult comedy! Two long sex scenes need to go somewhere else to play, but Michelle Bauer can stick around (she is one of Ray's original stars!). An action film can be violent all that it wants to, and nothing short. Expect campiness to degrade this kind of effect, as gunshot wounds aren't at all realistic (notice the small amount of blood). The climax is ridiculous and has no potential, with amateurish martial arts techniques that show itself. It also has to do with diffusing a time bomb. Come on, producers! We've seen this before! This is very good as a modern suspense tale, carrying this one up to below average status that's far from terrible. Your cravings for a B-grade actioner are an all-time high when you just can't get enough of them. What more can I say? I've had enough!
