Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)
#1
[Image: PB2PuFj.jpg]
Police ambush and kill several gang members in Los Angeles. Gang members make a pact of blood to strike back at police, and conduct a siege on the police station which is almost abandoned and due to be closed. Staff of the closing precinct and the criminals being held there while in transit must work together to fight off the attacking gang members.

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

I didn't *love* this but it was still enjoyed it *a lot*. My faves were easily Bishop the Cop, Napoleon the Criminal, and Leigh the Secretary.
The less said about Nancy Loomis the better.

Held by memories, in this moment, I turn into a coward
and choose a life in which I can`t even feel pain!
Held by memories, in this moment, I can`t go forward!
I can`t allow myself a life of wandering after something...

She was brutal. Thankfully, her character wasn't featured much. I get not everyone is going to be a badass action hero and some people crumble under pressure, but they could've made her a bit more three-dimensional and intelligent.

Agreed with Tye, though. Not a masterpiece, but I liked it. Same favorites as well, and you had some cool action bits. The first act is a little slow; I know Carpenter said he felt it took a bit too long to get to the actually assault/siege, and I'm inclined to agree with him (I also felt like a lot of the characters got more fleshed out during the siege than they did in the first act).

Would say I probably prefer the remake with Ethan Hawke overall, though, but this is solid and worth a viewing.

Ok thank God I'm not alone in thinking the first act felt like it dragged on for ages. And I agree about the characters too. Leigh was actually one of my least faves till the siege started.
