  1. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Fortress

    Peerless B-movie auteurism; comparable perhaps to the similarly garish and gory sci-fi satires of Verhoeven. The political subtext is rich and intelligent, while the 90s "stylisation" has dated beautifully; the entire film awash with comic book compositions, video monitor fuzz, pastels and bright neon. Take the prison itself as a microcosm for society and the message of the film has lost none of its power to incite.

  2. the.deft.one's rating of the film Fortress

    Possessing an interesting if familiar approach to dystopian population control, Fortress boasts methods of reproduction and conformity management that are straightforward in their brutality. But what Fortress lacks is an expansive vision and the plot is disappointingly straightforward. Not alternative enough to be consider cult nor visionary enough to lead the way, Fortress settles for genre also-ran, a fun enough B.

  3. Cacophonism's rating of the film Fortress

    Actually a lot of fun. Cheeseball Corman-esque sci-fi with that gory Stuart Gordon touch. Jeffrey Combs is a great comic relief in this too.

  4. Sean's rating of the film Fortress

    Christopher Lambert is kind of a cheesy actor and this is kind of a cheesy b-movie action movie. Kurtwood Smith always plays a great bad guywhich makes this film worthy of watching.Fortress is fun film and as long as you go into it expecting a popcorn film and nothing but, you'll enjoy yourself.

  5. Westley's rating of the film Fortress

    Eh, just a generic B-movie. Not bad, but not good either.
