futuristic action

Lambert and his wife are expecting their 2nd child. However, in this futuristic world, only one child is allowed per family. Eventually they are both captured and sent to a highly secured prison in the middle of nowhere.
Escape is apparently impossible.
But is it?

Decent acting. Not the greatest performance by Lambert though.
This is definitely a film for guys ... read more

"This is a very underrated sci-fi/action movie. The story is your standard prison movie formula only it's set in the future. Christopher Lambert does a great performance as John Brennick - a man sent to the Fortress because he wanted another child with his wife Karen. The law says you're only allowed to have one. Overall, a cool and satisfying movie with plenty of excitement to entertain anybody."

"27.2 Sopivan hölmö ja yliampuva tulevaisuuteen sijoittuva leffa. Paras Crisun tuotoksista tähän menneistä. Vankilaan keskittyvä tarina jaksaa kiehtoa koko keston ajan ja Vernon Wells pitää Lambertin kanssa huolen siitä ettei äijäenergia elokuvasta lopu"

Stupidest Hacking Scenes (10 movies items)

"Fortress occurs in a dystopian future where Christopher Lambert and his wife are jailed for violating the regime's one-child policy. The movie has many classic bits, particularly the scene in which the cyborg warden spies on the inmates' sex dreams. Another great sequence is the film's final hacking sequence. John Brennick (Christopher Lambert) and D-Day (Jeffrey Combs) upload "D-DAY'S REVENGE VIRUS" just before John's wife gets an unanesthetized C-section. Also note the system's hamfisted passw"

“Lambert and his wife are expecting their 2nd child. However, in this futuristic world, only one child is allowed per family. Eventually they are both captured and sent to a highly secured prison in the middle of nowhere.

Escape is apparently impossible.

Decent acting. Not the greatest performance by Lambert though.

This is definitely a film for guys (or anyone who likes to see a good fight!), it's filled with action, and is a good entertainment.
