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. 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

"Katsottu: 22.1.2015 DVD:ltä Suuri joukko jengiläisiä hyökkää poliisiasemalle 13, joka ollaan pian sulkemassa. Paikalle jääneiden poliisien ainoa toivo ovat asemalle jääneet vangit. 70-luvun toimintaelokuvien parhaimmistoa, mutta ehkä tämä jäi vähän liian lyhyeksi ja toimintaa olisi voinut olla vielä enemmänkin. Mutta ihan hyvä näin. "

“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, when I was back home, I realized it was a French dubbed version with no original version with or without subtitles... So, that was a major disappointment but I still didn't want to throw the damned thing away. Eventually, I thought the movie itself was pretty good. Basically, it is a B movie, an exploitation flick, and even though, I'm not a huge fan of this genre, this was definitely one of the bes” read more

" Moved way too slow for my liking, although I did like the soundtrack, this is the 2nd time I watched this and I felt just as bored as when I watched it the first time 5 years ago..."

"DVD Joku ajelee sniper-kivääri mukanaan tähtäillen satunnaiskulkijoita autostaan, lapsi ammutaan tämän tehdessä jäätelöautolla valitusta tuutistaan, jolloin tämän faija nappaa jätskipakun hanskalokerosta tykin käyden vigilanteretkelle murhaajia vastaan, ja kun afrokonstaapelilta kysytään millaisilla lisukkeilla tämä kahvinsa haluaa nauttia, kuuluu vastaus "olen jo kolmekymmentä vuotta ollut musta". Poliiseja ammutaan kivat määrät ja armoton asenne on paikallaan kuin nörtt"

"First viewing - Aug. 2nd Been meaning to check out this film for some time now & finally managed to sit down with it. What we have here is a solidly entertaining movie that shows plenty of signs of better things to come. Once the titular event begins things really take off & the tension holds through the ending. In fact I was very much reminded of George A. Romero's debut Night of the Living Dead, at least with regard to some of the character dynamics & the sure handle on the technical aspects "

"February 26 When I heard about that this was one of John Carpenter's earlier efforts (Before Halloween) I had to see this one. When I watched it was better than I expected. Another movie that has a pointless remake."
