Storyline

Roger Mason is a prisoner locked away in a futuristic fortress of a jail. Desperate to escape and see his daughter, he keeps making attempt after attempt to break free, but each one is foiled just as he's about to gain his freedom. As his punishments include being frozen in suspended animation for years at a time, he stays the same age while his daughter grows older. As more time keeps being added to his sentence, he despairs of ever getting out. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Gary Daniels stars as a spoiler, an escaped convict in a prison system that freezes it's criminals for years on end while bounty hunters and police are always two inches behind our wrongfully accused hero. Gary Daniels is rather impressive and the movie far exceeds the expectations you have of it. One of the main reasons Spoiler works so well is that it relies more on the conflict between Daniels' personal tragedy instead of action. The action sequences (Especially the one on one between G.Daniels and Brian Genesse) are poorly staged but the story holds so much interest and the special effects are good (Especially considering the budget) that one is more inclined to go with the flow of the film and enjoy the movie's melodrama as Gary Daniels searches for his daughter. Indeed the movie ends on a depressing note and it becomes one of the few B.movies that actually leave an effect on you. Although the movie should not be taken seriously on its politics, it is admirable that the movie's real entertainment comes from the stylish directing and good acting from the cast.
