Fortress Movie Review

Lord knows we don't get enough dystopian prison movies these days, mush less ones starring Christopher Lambert! Thank God Fortress rectifies that oversight, with Lambert imprisoned in a high-tech underground complex -- all for the crime of trying to have a second child with his wife (Locklin)! Of course, she's also incarcerated, and the evil Kurtwood Smith (our favorite dad from Dead Poets Society) torments them both. Tepid sci-fi fare that is, nonetheless, not completely painful to watch.
