Fugitive Rage (1996)

aka Caged Fear

How bad is it? It's a Fred Olen Ray women in prison film. That's a bad combination platter.
Should you see it? There are a few amusing moments, but not enough to make it worth while.

It's been a while since I reviewed a Fred Olen Ray film; he's so prolific, he's probably made 12 new films since then. This has women who break out of prison (not before a shower scene, though) having to fight mobsters, crooked policemen and a secret government agency. There's a moderate body count (maybe 15).  The plot is bad, the acting terrible and the direction non-existent. The few laughs I got from this came from the poor choreography; people stop in fights to prepare for the next assault and in one scene a car slows way down so the actress can roll over the hood without getting hurt. Ray gives himself a cameo, along with Robert Quarry, Ross Hagen and Calista Carradine (a third generation of bad film Carradines).
