Crime does not pay....
on 1 February 2014
In the future it's forbidden to give birth to more than one child for each woman.
You can escape to Mexico to avoid the authorities in USA, which is exactly what John and Karen Brennick were trying to do when Karen is pregnant with her second child.
When they think they have made it they are discovered and sent to the Fortress, where the prisoners are controlled by lasers, neutron-cannons, cameras, mind-scanners and electronic pain-causing devices in their stomachs.
With those odds, John plans to escape with his wife....
Here in England, this was released a the worst time possible, literally four weeks after 'No Escape' so by then people would have had their fill of inescapable prison movies.
Luckily though, this film never takes itself seriously, and it can be at times,a lot of campy nonsense.
Lambert is good as the lead, but a lot of the time, his threats are a little laughable. The story and the set up are smart, but the actual narrative lets it down a little.
The final third is what you would expect, with Lambert with his Raiden hair, spilling blue blood everywhere.
Fun while it lasts, and then once the sentence is over, you won't remember a single thing from it.
