  • The big shift between Carpenter's B-movie and filmmaker Jean-Fran├žois Richet's comic book-style remake is that instead of a troop of bloodthirsty gang members encircling the precinct, the bad guys here all look like good guys. show more

  • It's no classic, but you don't need to be a cultist to get in on the tawdry fun.

  • By playing it safe, the new Precinct leaves the audience sorry and restores thirteen to its place as the unluckiest number. show more
