Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Don't avoid the new Assault on Precinct 13 because it's a remake. There are plenty of other reasons.
Rotten: Restores thirteen to its place as the unluckiest number.
Fresh: This meat-and-potatoes dish of moviemaking is sufficiently tasty to satisfy auds hungry for old-fashioned rock-the-house action.
Fresh: It's a good old-fashioned shoot-'em-up with a few nice twists and some very good acting.
Not bad-the first version was far better
This was an ok take off on the "Assault on Precinct 13" cult Classic, the fist version, a little campy at times due to poor special effects, was just great and a much better pic, this one is ok and without the typical "All police are corrupt" angle this thing takes. In the first, the criminals are still pretty noble, at least one of them is, the cops are just human and the majority are just folks re-acting to the chaos around them, a much better film and without the predictable bs that so many pics seem to be cranked out by Hollywood today. Why can't we get some more of the classics!?
Solid action movie. This is a "B" action movie
I found some great acting here and some big names toned down. Some intense moments are in side... some predictable, some not so much.... all in all this is a thumbs up flick!
Good one timer
This was good but i would recommend renting since this movie gets old after you see it once. But thats just how i felt.
