Popculture told me this was as bad as Waterworld. It's not. It's a Stuart Gordon/Jeffrey Combs sci fi flick starring Christopher Lambert. It's sad, gross, and imaginative. It's really good.
I don't know what other people's issue is with the film, but mine is that it's hard to watch when all you can think about is that white Americans did this to poc slaves in real life. This happened in America's history, same daily torture, just with more victims and as in Fortress, it's over nothing. This makes the film less entertaining and more disturbing, sad, and uncomfortable.
