"Fortress" is a really well done sci-fi film that is enjoyable to watch. The movie takes place in 2017, where the government controls population growth by allowing only one child per couple. Any additional children become property of the futuristic MenTel Corporation, and the couple is sent to a high-tech prison for this "crime". After losing their first child, John and Karen Brennick are expecting another child and are caught trying to cross the U.S. border. The rest of the film takes place in the MenTel prison, where John Brennick is separated from his wife but attempts to make a daring escape. Good special effects and acting make this film stand out from standard sci-fi and action fare. Christopher Lambert does a really good job playing Brennick, a man determined to be reunited with his wife and save his unborn child from the clutches of MenTel.

By THE MOVIE GUY HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 11 2015
Format: Blu-ray
I had a hard time believing the rave reviews. The story takes place in the near future. John Henry Brennick (Christopher Lambert) and his wife (Loryn Locklin) get nabbed going into Canada because she wore a flap jacket under her coat. She is pregnant with her second child which is illegal and abortions are also outlawed which made no sense.

They are placed in an inescapable futuristic prison with the typical sadistic warden (Kurtwood Smith) a prison hierarchy that requires him to fight, a mind sifter, and a huge metal object in the intestines that somehow doesn't block it. Seriously?

I found the characters and dialogue boring. The Sci-fi that made the film watchable is now outdated. The politics is silly. I suppose people who cherish the rugged individual against the evil government, "Red Dawn" is the greatest film ever, etc. type of crowd might enjoy this film, but that is not me.

Christopher Lambert is one of those actors who's done a lot of good stuff, and a lot of bad stuff. This is an example of one those in between titles.
The story takes place in the near future. The world is overly populated and run by a huge corporation Mentel. By law each couple can only have one offspring, dead or alive. Lambert and his wife break this law after their first child is stillborn. However when trying to escape they get caught, arrested, and put in the Fortress. The Fortress is the most powerful Maximum Security Prison is the world. Once inside they are seperated and must fight not only for their lives, but for the life of their child.
Overall this title has it's moments, it's definetly not the best title out there but it's also not the worst. Check it out sometime.

It is the future and breeding is controlled by the government. John Brannick and his wife are about to illegally have their second child. They are caught making their way out of the country and put in a fortress, a large prison in which the prisoners are controlled via a small device placed in the intestine. Silly? Yes. Fun? Definitely. I honestly can't give this movie more than three stars, but it was a fun action flick. The gore is big here and fans of this kind of movie, like "Robocop" or "Total Recall," will surely find much to like. Christopher Lambert does a nice job as the action hero who just wants to see his wife. The film is sort of like a futuristic "Great Escape." I had fun watching this film and if you're a fan of action or sci-fi, you should too.

1992 to be exact,when they say it's a slam-bang sci-fi blowout they meant it,
Christopher Lambert [John Brennick] and his wife[Karen] lost their first child,trying
to escape Across the border to freedom from a ruthless sadistic futuristic world now
that there're pregnant again,because the sadistic leader wants there new baby,played
by Kurtwood Smith who was very good at his acting in this movie,
i would like to give it away but i can't,after-all you have to see for your-self,you think.
