Interesting characters. A good script.
‘Assault on Precinct 13’ rivals the best police thrillers of the ’70s
‘Assault on Precinct 13’ has the feel, the look and the energy of a really strong crime thriller from the 1970s. This is easy to say, as it’s a remake of a 1976 John Carpenter film of the same name. But this observation comes to you unsullied, from someone who saw it before knowing it’s a remake or seeing the original picture.
This blows me away. How could someone whose is to write about movies not know that this is a remake? Nowhere in the article does he elaborate on this statement. Just seems very very lame.
