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

"Crime does not pay."

Fortress is an epically manly classic from the golden age of cinematic mandom. A prison break action-thriller, it possesses all the right ingredients for an entertaining slice of escapism, with an imaginative vision of a dystopic future, a superb cast containing a few action genre luminaries, and an R rating in place allowing for plenty of satisfying violence a... read more

"27.12. Watching Fortress feels like reading old 2000 AD -comic book. The concept, the visuals, everything feels like a good sci-fi adventure with social commentary. More humor would've been nice but the director Stuart Gordon (auteur) keeps the movie more low-key. "

Moviewatcher122's 2015 Film Diary: November (50 movies items)

"November 29 "It's like TNT on PMS." This movie was pure cheesy fun. It had a interesting premise and the movie executes it well enough. The movie was very entertaining and it doesn't take itself too seriously. "

An epically manly action classic

“"Crime does not pay."

Fortress is an epically manly classic from the golden age of cinematic mandom. A prison break action-thriller, it possesses all the right ingredients for an entertaining slice of escapism, with an imaginative vision of a dystopic future, a superb cast containing a few action genre luminaries, and an R rating in place allowing for plenty of satisfying violence and salty language. Fortress started life as a generously-budgeted vehicle for Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the Austrian Oak instead opted to star in Last Action Hero, provoking budget cuts. Nevertheless, the ensuing feature is more than adequate, and although it's not exactly thought-provoking or deep, it's a perfectly sufficient beer and pizza extravaganza.

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"

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.
