Assault on Precinct 13 (Movie - 2005)

Starring: Laurence Fishburne, Ethan Hawke; Starring: John Leguizamo; Release Date Wide: 01/21/2005; Runtime (in minutes): 109; MPAA Rating: R; Distributor: Rogue Pictures

A volatile yet lunkheaded remake of John Carpenter’s 1976 B movie. In Detroit, a crumbly police station with drug officer-turned-desk jockey Ethan Hawke in charge comes under siege by a squad of rogue cops. It’s none too plausible (wouldn’t there be some way on God’s digital earth to signal for help?), yet parts of the picture are fun anyway.
