Low-budget sci-fi hokum which sees Christopher Lambert locked up in a high security prison and plays out like a futuristic version of The Great Escape.
The story is decent, the acting okay, but come the halfway point it's clear to see how budgetary restraints stop the film's true potential from shining through. Still, for a B-movie, it's not at all bad.
5/10
