Fortress 2: Re-entry Reviews

Sequel to Fortress, this is a is a decent affair, one that is quite entertaining and is worth seeing if you enjoy low budget action films. The original wasn't the best film, but it was good, and this one is a decent affair that retains the vibe of the original and uses a proven formula to deliver something worthwhile for genre fans. If you're in the mood for a pleasant B movie action flick, and have seen the first, then you're sure to enjoy this one. The film is manages to entertain, and it's one of those movies that definitely will appeal to genre fans. Although never anything great, the film is a pleasant time waster that deserves to be rediscovered by B movie fans. Of course the film has silly moments, but that's where it gets its charm. I enjoy low budget action flicks, and for a sequel, it's entertaining enough considering that it's so low budget. If you're a fan of these films, you're going to like this one, though it's not a perfect film, compared to the Highlander sequels, this is a far better affair starring Lambert. Fortress 2 sticks to a proven method of action filmmaking, and though it has shortcomings, it's a fun film if you enjoy this genre. The acting here is average, and is nothing great considering that is B movie stuff, but for the most part, it succeeds at delivers an hour and a half of entertainment value for viewers looking for mindless action. There might be better B movies out there, but for what it is, it's better than what people give it credit for.

Well good old 'Brennick' has once again been caught by the evil 'MenTel Corp' and banged up, only this time the prison is in outer space folks!

Yep the franchise goes right down the pan here as the original is simply remade all over again but in space...well a poor excuse for space. The first film had some class but this second is a really poor effort simply to cash in on more of the same. The effects are pretty bad with really obvious bluescreen work, acting is bad from all including Lambert who has nothing much to go on really and the space prison sets look dreadfully cheap and cheerful.

It really is a shame to see such a difference in quality with these two films. This second is actually pretty dull seeing as it retreads everything from the first literately. Only highlight is the sexy Pam Grier and errr that's pretty much it.

This sequel is a very poor cash in on the first, watch the first film and leave it at that!

This sequel with Christopher Lambert who returns to reprise his role in prison again at the outer space, he must figure out how to escape again. Plagued by halfhearted performances and below-par effects, Fortress 2 cannot escape from its own inconsistencies.

A great sequel to the 1993 film "Fortress. This time, Christopher Lambert is in another prison, but in space. Planning his escape with some fellow inmates, they have a lot to deal with. A great sequel.

The only movie Christopher Lambert appeared in that I remotely liked was Fortress. This movie truly sucked though.

I've seen both Fortress movies and i hated them both. They were on during a marathon on USA and i couldn't stop laughing. The fact the second one was in space made me laugh soooooo very very hard. Cuz the special effects were beyond poor.

Follow up to the first film, pretty much the same plot, as a man tries to escape from a futuristic maximum security prison, this time orbiting way into space away from Earth. It's really quite dull, messy and campy.

Good fun, if you're a sci-fi fan.

While the premise makes a thousand promises of off the wall plot and character developments, insane escape attempts and wholesome bloody squibs to come; the film comes to the table with not at least a lack of development of the first film but a sub-par re-enactment. Taking all the memorable iconography and characters of the first picture, Fortress 2 not only fails to add anything the Fortress mythology or adventure but simple replays the first movie with poorer sets, performances, effects, script and actors.

QUICK FIRE SINGLE SENTENCE REVIEW = When you cant even make a movie based on one-liners, gore and all round retardation fun, then you really got a problem.

bad sequel and very unwanted this is just desperation. the original is no classic but at least it gathered a cult following, sadly this film is too late and just terrible.
