Re: Fortress

This gets played alot on HBO/Cinemax.  I've seen it and it's good.

Re: Fortress

The only Fortress I have seen is the one with Christopher Lambert where he goes to the prison with the coller that blow up if you try and run away. This other one sounds pretty good, tell me more.......

Re: Fortress

Yeah, tell us where we can find this one, seems to have slipped in under the radar...

Re: Fortress

I can also say that this is an awesome movie. I loved it as a kid, I always thought it would be kind of cool to play hero or go cave exploring.

Re: Fortress

In an Australian outback town so small that children of all ages share a single classroom, teacher Sally (Rachel Ward) suffers the typical frustrations of life in the provinces. She really finds something to fret about when a gang of gun-toting, mask-wearing criminals kidnaps her and the students and drives them to the remote wilderness. With the kids' safety, perhaps survival, in the balance, Sally must appease the lewdly suggestive bandits while scheming for a way to escape their clutches. After several abortive attempts result in multiple deaths, she and the oldest children manage to usher the young ones to at least provisional safety. Free but stranded in a mountain hideaway, the class must band together to survive and perhaps turn the tables on the men who continue to hunt them. ~ Brian J. Dillard, All Movie Guide
