Assault on Precinct 13 is fun, engaging, and a little clichéd, but amongst the recent crop of bland action films for the whole family, it stands tall as an example of how to do one right.

"Assault On Precinct 13" is a movie that tries to elaborately connect modern day police technology and methods to out-of-date aspects from John Carpenter's'70s era film. The result is that the audience is pulled from feeling like you're watching a blow-ou

It's neither graceful nor disgraceful; it just functions and then is over.

An over-the-top shootout replete with foul language, gruesome killings and unnecessary subplots.

At its best, though, this is witty, tense and bloody: a homage that Carpenter might appreciate.

A smart script, edgy acting and a gradual accumulation of suspense set-pieces makes for a decent popcorn high.

In its middle section, Assault on Precinct 13 manages to build up an impressive head of steam.

The central problem with this [film] is its essential uselessness. It does its job, I guess. But the job was already done a lot better a long time ago.

Fantastica Daily

An idiotic remake of John Carpenter's crackerjack B thriller from 1976. Panders to the lowest common denominator by changing the original's street-gang villains to white cops.

A gritty, violent journey that's about twice as good as you'd expect it to be.

It's good for a silly laugh, this stuff. And maybe this movie will draw renewed attention to Carpenter's eminently better movie.

A blast of cheesy, full throttle fun that didn't have to be made nearly as well as it was to do the job it was meant to do.

...a good, old-fashioned shoot'em up infused with today's liking for flawed, ambiguous heroes and villains who are more than just killing machines. I was pleasantly surprised.
