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

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 a... read more

To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Basically, this is a massive guilty pleasure of mine. Indeed, when I started to really watch movies compulsively, I was just about 12 years old and I was mostly focusing on action flicks, which was rather appropriate at that age.

“To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Basically, this is a massive guilty pleasure of mine. Indeed, when I started to really watch movies compulsively, I was just about 12 years old and I was mostly focusing on action flicks, which was rather appropriate at that age. And if such an action flick was taking place in some futuristic world, then, it would be pretty much the perfect mix for me. Sure, the concept was pretty basic but the whole thing looked really decent (especially with such a rather modest budget) and I thought it was pretty entertaining.
