Not to be confused with the abysmal and unnecessary remake of the same name, this film actually achieves in creating a thrilling atmosphere of suspense and terror. With hardly any dialogue and very little explanation, all you need to know is that the streets are littered with criminal gangs who are armed, remorseless and extremely violent.

When these gangs unite and descend on an u... read more

"There are no heroes anymore, Bishop. Just men who follow orders."

Director John Carpenter is distinguished for classic genre-defining films such as The Thing and Halloween. It's little known that in 1976 Carpenter directed Assault on Precinct 13: this taut, fast-paced, thoroughly riveting low-budget action film. The aptitude of Carpenter's film is the way he cleverly takes inspirat... read more

Since I have seen every single major movie directed by John Carpenter ('The Thing', 'Escape from New York', 'The Fog', 'Halloween') except this one, I just had to watch it really bad.

Indeed, even though I finally managed to secure a DVD while vacationing in France, wh... read more

"24.5. Theater An entertaining film with a great soundtrack, but I guess that's Carpenter for you. Could've used something like 10 minutes more of the actual assault. Now it kinda feels like they're making their last stand right after the first wave."

"Due to an overhauling of the system, Precinct 13 is about to be closed down. The few officers straggling last minute duties before the doors are permanently closed soon find themselves locked in, however, as an attempted siege furiously unfolds from outside. A band made up of various members from rival gangs have pooled their numbers together, and have come a callin' with guns ablazin', in hopes of avenging their fallen comrades. John Carpenter, before he becomes the horror-meister that he's"
