Fortress

 (1992)

Fortress Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

Set in a dystopian future, 2017, ex-army officer John Henry Brennick and his wife Karen are attempting to cross the US-Canada border to Vancouver to have a second child. Strict one-child policies forbid a second pregnancy, but the couple believe they are justified because their first child died at birth. Brennick is caught and sentenced to 31 years in a private maximum security prison run by the "MenTel Corporation". To maintain discipline all inmates are implanted with "Intestinators" which induce severe pain or death, for serious infractions, as a form of physical control and mental conditioning. The prison is co-run by Director Poe, who oversees Zed-10, a computer that monitors day-to-day activities and represents MenTel. The prison itself is located over a deep pit that can only be crossed by a retractable bridge, while the prisoners are kept in overcrowded cells secured by laser walls.

For more about Fortress and the Fortress Blu-ray release, see Fortress Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Christopher Lambert, Kurtwood Smith, Loryn Locklin, Clifton Collins, Jr., Jeffrey Combs, Vernon Wells

Fortress Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Fortress limps onto Blu-ray with a fairly bland high definition presentation. Echo Bridge's 1.78:1 transfer doesn't impress to start and it never really offers anything of note throughout. At best, details are serviceable; the higher resolution allows for increased stability and clarity on larger screens, but forget seeing much in the way of very fine textures or minute little clothing or facial details. The upped resolution does allow for the lower end props and set pieces to show their roughness, but otherwise most tight, intricate details are virtually nonexistent here. Colors are faded and hardly vibrant; the movie is dull by design, but the palette never really has a chance to shine, at least not until the end when even bright, sun-washed colors prove merely adequate. Blacks are heavily washed out throughout. Light grain does linger over many scenes, but the transfer does show some general wear and tear along the way. Light banding and sloppy color transitions are uncommon but present. This is by no means a horrendous transfer, but Fortress has certainly seen better days.


Fortress Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Fortress' DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 lossless soundtrack is no sonic marvel, but it gets the job done easily and admirably enough. Where the track lacks range it more than makes up for in effort. There's no shortage of wide front-end elements or distinctively placed sounds. Music enjoys fair clarity and a quality stage presence. Vehicles maneuver from side-to-side in the early going, and various general sounds within the prison walls are handled well enough. There's never much of an organic sonic atmosphere within the film, however; it's very sterile and offers little beyond music, general action sound effects, and dialogue. The spoken word does come through cleanly and without any sort of intelligibility or clarity issues. This is a nuts-and-bolts action track that delivers gunfire and other action-oriented effects modestly but effectively. It's not a memorable listen, but Echo Bridge's modest soundtrack stretches itself as far as it can go and gets audiences through the film with no major problems of note.
