Follow-up in similar style full of action , violence and technological elements
This is a Prison movie with high-tech science fiction ,following to ¨The fortress¨directed by Stuart Gordon in which Lambert is imprisoned because another son was born and in the future it's prohibited . In a futuristic USA, it's forbidden to give birth to more than one child for each woman. John (Christopher Lambert)is a rebel whom the resistance asking for help , but he escapes to avoid the authorities in USA, which is exactly what he and his wife Karen Brennick (Beth Toussiant replacing Loryn Locklyn) were trying to do when with her second son (their first child was born dead) escape. Although the motion picture is supposed to take place 7 years after the former one (after John's son was born) yet, in this film, his son is 10 years old. When they think they have made it , he is discovered and put to prison . With those odds, John still plans to getaway . Prison's chief ( Patrick Malahide , replacing Kurtwood Smith) located in a space station is a villain who punishes to inmates with tortures and using cruel technological security measures. The modern prison called the "Fortress" where the prisoners are controlled by lasers, neutron-cannons, cameras, mind-scanners and electronic pain-causing devices in their stomachs .Christopher Lambert along with other prisoners (Liz May Brice, Nick Brimble, John Sharian) will face off the director (Patrick Malahide)and his wardens (Okumoto).
The picture blends thrills, suspense ,violence,drama,action,struggles and some nudism . Special appearance of the Blaxploitiation goddess , Pan Grier. The final confrontation between the starring and baddies is stimulating and get some exciting surprises.Runtime film is adequate ,it is fast moving and is neither boring, nor tiring but bemusing. Atmospheric cinematography and adequate score fitting to action by Christopher Franke .The motion picture obtained little success and failed at Box office . This second part bears a similar argument to previous entry but isn't as nice as the first . The picture is regularly directed by Geoff Murphy who also realized the second installement to ¨Young guns¨ with more success than this one . The film will appeal to Science fiction buffs and Christopher Lambert fans . Rating 5/10 ,average .
