Thrilling and action-packed, Assault on Precinct 13 is a well-crafted and smart remake of the John Carpenter classic. When a prison transport is diverted on New Year’s Eve to a shutdown police station that’s short-staffed, a group of corrupt cops lay siege to the building in order to kill a Detroit crime lord that was on the transport. Ethan Hawke, Laurence Fishburne, and Gabriel Byrne form a strong cast and give great performances. Additionally, the action scenes are incredibly well-shot, and bring a lot of intensity and energy to the film. Exciting and adrenaline filled, Assault on Precinct 13 is an explosive crime thriller.

This flick was pure cheese. I can't believe Ebert gave it a B. How in the heck did they get Fish to do this? My favorite part has to be the final chase scene where they wreck the vehicle and then all of a sudden they are in this large forest. Having grown up in Detroit my whole life, I had to laugh out loud. A forest--downtown HA! What do they think we have Central Park? It just culminated the cheese factor.

Mediocre action flick that has nothing special to offer.
