Here Is What You Need To Know:
Fortress 2: Re-Entry might as well have been called Fortress Number 2: Forced Rear Entry. Sometimes the purpose of a good review, or even a half-ass review is to protect you from being screwed over both in time and money. This is one of those moments. The original Fortress was a decent enough b-movie, but the sequel is just a grab for some cash. You should avoid it. The film puts Highlander's Christopher Lambert back in prison, this time in a floating prison above earth. Gone is the potential of the original, replaced with a simple, “get this over with so we can go home” philosophy.
What Was Cool:
-Sorry fans of the original but nothing, nothing is cool here.
What Was Stupid:
-I will be kind. This film is just no where near the quality of the first film. Skip it.
