No Escape (1994)

Wow. What a crowd pleaser. This pretty-much fantastic film combines elements from Waterworld, Mad Max, The Lost World, Lord of the Flies, Fortress and Escape from New York/LA. We're talking 'we're in the future but it feels like Medieval Times,' secretive big business, 'king of the hill,' 'wearing crazy face paint and piercings,' all-man cult lead by "The Father," sort of action. In fact, I don't even remember seeing any women in this film so if you're in it for the titties you better look again. However, if you're actually in it for the awesome names like Ray Liotta, Ernie Hudson (always an indicator of greatness) and Lance Henriksen (of Millennium [tv], a Chris Carter Creation), or the inevitably classic theme of military control, prison escape and the nature of humans under duress, than this an excellent pick.

Final Verdict: "A Must See!"
