Maximum Security (1997)

aka Maximum Revenge

How bad is it? It's one of the worst prison films I've seen. And I've seen plenty.
Should you see it? No.

The supposed maximum security prison is obviously just an empty office building. Five prisoners are brought in, there's a little bit of a reporter getting a tour and then terrorists infiltrate and plant a bomb (nuclear, of course). So, it's 5 unarmed cons, the female reporter and the warden vs. the bad guys. The hero disappears for half of the film without explanation. Tense scenes are interrupted for extended sex scenes. The conclusion consists of snipping a wire. Fred Olen Ray directed and gave himself a role; also appearing are Michelle Bauer and John Lazar.
