“I wouldnu0026#39;t say Fortress 2 was an utter disaster like many of you have pointed out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIu0026#39;m a big fan of the first Fortress movie, and recently while in my local Blockbuster store I spotted Fortress 2 sitting on the selves. So me being a massive Christopher Lambert u0026amp; Fortress fan I jumped at the chance of renting it. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI donu0026#39;t like the idea of the new Fortress being located in space it doesnu0026#39;t work out right in the long run. Fortress 2 is pretty much the same. The intestinators from the first movie have been replaced by a sort of camera which is implanted into your brain thereu0026#39;s the usual evil prison director controlling the Fortress and ZED the talking computer is back. Brennicks wife, Karen, is also back, but replaced with a different actor.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003enTo cut a long story short. The Fortress has now been turned into a giant power station which is floating around in space and is owned by the Mentel co-oporation. Inmates are kept there to keep it in working order and to build new structures for the Fortress. John Brennick (Christopher Lambert) gets caught (again) and is thrown back into the Fortress. He then sets out struggling to find a way out.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLike most sequels Lambert has starred in. I feel that Fortress 2 was rushed, thereu0026#39;s giant gaps in the movie which could of been filled in with maybe some clever dialogue or interesting scenes. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall, being a massive Lambert fan even I must agree that this movie is below average. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e4/10”
