Random intenstinations for everyone! Okay do I have your attention? This movie had mine, although this is one highly unreleastic and often silly film it's a real riot to watch. We go to a world where you can only have one child, when a woman's first kid dies, she gets pregnant with another and then her husband is thrown into the "fortress". They have a chip planted in them that will make them explode from the intestines if they go outside the lines and other fun things like that. Of course it's about an escape from this nonsensical futuristic prison. If you like violence you should enjoy this on a campy level, Gordon's effects are decent and his films are very easy to watch by nature. This certainly isn't his best effort, but a movie you'll want to see for a laugh none-the-less.
