Electronics whizz Rutger Hauer is persuaded to pull off a jewellery heist by his girlfriend. She promptly double-crosses him, shoots him and runs off with the third team member. Hauer survives and is sent to a high security prison where all the inmates wear collars containing explosives. All the collars come in pairs and if you move more than 100 yards from your unknown 'partner' both heads are blown off.

Rutger Huer teams up with Mimi Rogers in this violent sci-fi thriller as two escaped convicts linked by electronic collars that explode if they are more than a hundred yards apart. The action is kept up at a fast pace and the two principle characters bounce off each other nicely: 'Can I be frank with you? You couldn't turn me on if I had a switch!'. An old favourite on video (released in a double pack with another Huer favourite, Split Second) this early nineties sleeper is long overdue a DVD release. Print is clean and much better than the video release but unfortunately for fans no special features to speak of.

Wedlock is a little known gem of a movie. Rutger Hauer leads the cast as a man sent to prison sometime in the future over a jewelery theft which has gone wrong. The prison scenes are well executed and the head of the prison does an excellent job here in being a cold sadistic person.

Mimi Rogers is probably miss cast, she can't act that well. But the tension runs through the film and the script is tight. As ever Hauer is excellent. This is an essential purchase if you are a fan of sci fi/ dystopian movies, it's a hidden gem that you will not be disappointed with.

I bought this film as I was recommended it by a friend years ago, and I like Rutger Hauer films in general. Well this film certainly isn't one of his best, but for die hard fans of Rutger Hauer is worth seeing. It doesn't really live up to his lead roles in say Blind Fury, but he survives sufficiently. Problem here seems to be that apart from Mimi Rogers the supporting cast is rather "bargin basement" material and thus lowers the viewing standard of what is otherwise a fairly decent story. The story itself centres around Rutger Hauer, having been double crossed after a robbery ending up in a high-tech prison where everyone is "Wedlocked" to an unknown partner by explosive collars, the collars being like the ones used at the beginning of The Running Man. It is quite amusing the way there are no locks or walls in the prison, and all the prisoners are stopping each other from escaping. The collars certainly are the centre of the story and result in some close escapes. To sum up there have been better Rutger Hauer films. This one is average, the idea is good, but it could have been done better.

Yep it's pretty light weight, low budget sci Fi nonsense, but still deserves 3.5 stars as it is so much fun.

Sure it's not original, the whole prisoner with bomb collar was already done as others have mentioned in Running man years earlier, the only difference here is the lead charachters keep them on for the duration of the movie.

Rutgar Haur plays the unlucky jewel thief double crossed by his partners and sent to the private prison with exploding collars to prevent escape.

So first part of the movie is lot's of prison cliches, followed by an action packed escape, then next part is a pursuit movie as Haur and his fellow escapee Mimi Rogers avoid authorities and the corrupt prison warden who is hoping to find where the loot is from the films opening heist that got Haur locked up. The final part involves more double crosses with his old partners and of course trying to get to his money undetected.

Full of old school action (none of that rubbish CGI nonesense of todays films), lots of humour, some double crosses and moving at a good pace
this is a fun film and amongst Haur's better efforts, out of some tufkeys he's done, it seems the late 80's and early 90's were his best, and this is one of them.
