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

Brilliant action thriller

"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. Eventually, it took me a very long time to finally get my hands on it. Unfortunately, something quite dreadful happened under way. Indeed, even though I finally managed to secure a DVD while vacationing in France, wh... read more

"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.

"16.4. DVD Ostin kauan kauan sitten loppuunmyydyn suomijulkaisun. Toki siinä oli väärä kuvasuhde ja se vituttaa. Loistavaa toimintajännäriä, josta ei oikein pahaa sanaa keksi."

Movie Reviews (part 4) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Simple but effective synthesizer music. Simple but engaging plot reminiscent of "Night of the Living Dead" but with gang-members carrying silencers instead. The low budget give the movie a realistic documentary feel. One of the most heartbreaking and controversial "meaningless murder" that has been put on screen. The Downs: John Carpenter lost his way somewhere for 20 years ago. He needs to find back to his old independent style."

"Näin tämän karmean remake version tuossa useita vuosia sitten. Mielessäni totesin sen olevan ihan idealtaan mielenkiintoinen pätkä, mutta ehkä toteutus ja lopputulos vähän liian 2000-lukua. Nyt vasta näin tämän originaalin ja täytyy sanoa, että kyllä oli varsinainen pätkä. Alun 40min olin ihan pihalla koko juonesta. Sitten noin 10 sekunnissa juoni käänsikin elokuvan mielenkiintoiseksi eloonjäämistaisteluksi suljetuksi määrätyllä poliisiasemalla. Elokuvassa on tyypillinen"
