Address Comments To:
The cartoonish plot of "Let's remove the intestinators (which are gadgets embedded in the prisoners' stomachs) and escape, and let's save the unauthorized unborn baby and its mother," cannot be saved by peppering the film with trite dashes of suspense and gore. The overall special effects are a junk-yard version of TERMINATOR II, ALIEN, ROBOCOP, and DEATH BECOMES HER. Originality is a distant memory. By the time the film ends, the only FORTRESS is the movie house in which it plays and from which one is glad to escape.
