**Ric's Review - FILM - Assult on precinct 13**

Ethan Hawk and Laurence Fishburne head this line up for a film based around a Detroit Gang leader, Bishop (Fishburne). Bishop is held in precinct 13 which is due to close forever at 12 midnight. He and several other prisinors are held there however after poor weather disrupts their transport van. Without ruining the plot too much a group of armed men try to storm the under staffed precinct, led by Ethan hawk (An old under cover agent disturbed by the loss of his team 8 months earlier), in an attempt to reach Bishop. Of course there is all sorts of corruption within the police and i have to say i found the whole film a little predictable. There wasn't any special effects to talk of really and the plot didn't really make that much sence. The whole film was full of typical OTT yanks sending 30 men when 1 would do! There are certainly better things out at the moment!

Another poor remake then ? Try and find the original, it doesn't make any more sense but it is a good bit of shoot 'em up B movie fun.
