Synopsis


Assault on Precinct 13
This action-packed remake of the John Carpenter classic tells the tale of an under-manned Detroit police precinct on its last day of operation that finds itself under siege by a ruthless force that will not stop. This time, a notorious cop-killer and mobster Marion Bishop (Laurence Fishbourne) is unexpectedly brought into the precinct during a blizzard on New Year's Eve, much to the dismay of police sergeant Jake Roenick (Ethan Hawke). By nightfall, the remaining cops and prisoners find themselves fighting for their lives against a group of rogue cops intent on taking down Bishop before he testifies against them in the courtroom. Now it's up to the officers, secretaries, and inmates on the inside to band together just to survive this one night. Also starring Gabriel Byrne, John Leguizamo, Drea de Matteo, and Brian Dennehy. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

    The original assault on precinct 13 is a classic masterpiece by the great John Carpenter. At first I didn't like this remake because of the perfection of the original. However after a rewatch, I actually love this movie. It really takes nothing away from the original, everyone is really good in the movie, and it looks and sounds great on blu ray.

    A Good Action/Suspense Movie!

    This was a pretty good movie, starts off a little slow, but you soon realize that it is just setting up the roller-coaster that is the rest of the feature! A good flick with an ending that you won't really see coming. I would recommend it.

    The original is a classic, the remake is worth a watch and a pickup. Got it for a good price at Best Buy. Has some good bonus features and good picture quality for the Bluray.

    This is a surprisingly fun movie. Watched it and was pleasantly surprised at the build up of suspense and action. Good movie but not recommended for young teens.

    It's about a criminal who's locked in a precinct and crooked cops are trying to kill him. So a burnt out cop has to defend the precinct with other criminals.Not enough action,to much drama.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    This movie started out slow but got going toward the middle. If you like Ethan Hawk, you would probably be pleased.
