If you are going to remake a cult film classic, it darn well ought to be better than the original. Jean-Francois Richet apparently ignored this tidbit of Filmmaking 101 wisdom when he was putting together Assault on Precinct 13.

Assault on Precinct 13 is fun, engaging, and a little clichéd, but amongst the recent crop of bland action films for the whole family, it stands tall as an example of how to do one right.

Richet's film provides more than enough entertainment in its 109 minutes
