Assault on Precinct 13
This new version of John Carpenter's classic is superfluous in the extreme, and while it’s not technically a bad movie, per se, viewers unfamiliar with the film’s lineage will likely write it off as yet another midwinter also-ran, the sort of action film that never quite takes off and instead focuses on random gun battles and cheesy dialogue.
"...Laurence Fishburne, Maria Bello, Drea de Matteo, John Leguizamo, Ja Rule, Brian Dennehy and Gabriel Byrne. It’s never wise..."
