Fortress (1992)

A man and his wife are nabbed at a future US emigration point with an illegal baby during population control and sent to a high-tech prison.

Sci-fi actioner is well-made, but mostly on a B-movie level; OK, if taken as mindless entertainment.

Halliwell (no star): "An efficient action film in a science-fiction setting, but one that is unable to escape from its own over-familiar scenario."

Maltin*1/2: "Intriguing premise is sabotaged by weak acting and a weaker script."

Michael Weldon/Psychotronic: "This is one of the best by Gordon..."
