It's direct to video, which is a sub-genre on its own. And (at least I do so) this genre needs to be seen on it's own. If you compare Fortress II with the first one ... its of course cheaper. Claner, but cheaper. And the original was a trash-movie to begin with.
But I really had no problem with that. Within its options it was well made, and I liked the setting and idea.
If you go in, knowing that this was never supposed to be a "passion"-projecct from a filmmaker, then I really cant point out that much stuff which could upset you.
Maybe hardcore fans from the first movie. But then again: It's not like that part 2 totally destroys the original.
I liked it, for what it is.
