Fortress

Anyone else like this movie? Or is it's fan base limited to myself and my friend Andy as I suspect?

For those not in the know, Fortress is set in the future and stars Christopher 'Highlander' Lambert as a former soldier who is imprisoned, along with his wife, for trying to have a second child in a world where it's one child per couple. The prison is the Fortress of the title and is this big underground mining facility where all prisoners are fitted with an 'intestinator' which can cause extreme pain or death at a command. The whole things is run by some evil dude and his Hal-like computer, Zed. Eventually Lambert and co. stage a breakout. Cue lots of death and near-misses.

Basically think Total Recall meets The Great Escape. A low IQ film but quite enjoyable. They ruined it with an utterly dire sequel (Fortress 2: Re-entry - set in...wait for it....space!) which is famous for having brilliant logic that if you hold your breath for long enough, you can go out of one airlock and into another without any spacesuit/breathing apparatus (seriously).
