If you have seen the first "Fortress" movie, stay clear of this sequel...
Alright I have just revisited the 1992 "Fortress" movie on TV and immediately after they showed the 2000 "Fortress 2: Re-Entry" movie, so I sat through it as I haven't seen that before, much less even being overly familiar with it.
I will say that this sequel is basically just a re-invention of the first movie, and as such it is a totally unnecessary movie in itself. It is basically everything that happened in the first movie, except that the sequel takes place on a Men-Tel facility orbiting planet Earth. Yeah, that is how brilliant the writers behind "Fortress 2" were; just take part one and re-write parts of it and change the location of the Men-Tel Corporation's facility.
The story takes place seven years after John and Karen Brennick managed to flee the Men-Tel Corporation high security prison in the first movie, and they are living in a remote area, constantly on the run from Men-Tel. And apparently they have been helping some kind of underground resistance group to thwart the work of Men-Tel. But Men-Tel catches up with them and captures John, bringing him to a new prison facility...
Alright, lots of similarities to the first movie, as I stated above. But there is one major flaw in the movie, it takes place seven years after the first movie, but for some reason the Brennick son is ten years old, although he was born at the end of the first movie. That was just a hilarious mistake. And the scene where John Brennick was outside in space in a jumpsuit only, without a proper space suit or an oxygen tank was just painful to watch; it was insulting to anyone with just an ounce of intelligence, as it was so unrealistic and silly.
I found this sequel to be an unnecessary movie, especially if you have just seen the first movie or if you are just even familiar with the story of the first movie. However, if you watch "Fortress 2: Re-Entry" without having seen the first movie, then this sequel is actually an alright movie.
The first "Fortress" movie was mediocre, but this shameless rip-off and re-invention of the first movie that passes as a sequel is just a step downward, in both enjoyment and story.
"Fortress 2: Re-Entry" doesn't even boast any impressive acting performances as the first movie did. There was no actors or actresses to match the performances of Jeffrey Combs or Kurtwood Smith from the first movie. I am not personally a fan of Christopher Lambert's acting skills, so there weren't any great performances that stood out in "Fortress 2: Re-Entry".
This movie doesn't offer anything great in any way thinkable, and I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. I guess if you are a big fan of Christopher Lambert, then the movie will have any worth to watch, otherwise, then it is just not really worth the effort. In my opinion, this movie should never have made it off the drawing board.
