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.

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.

With only a few hours left in the calendar year, Precinct 13, one of Detroit's oldest precinct houses, is closing. You'll want to be there...

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

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.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Rudely funny and gleefully violent, the film is a wound-up genre exercise that doesn't dip even a toe into reality but is a good time if you can get past that.
