Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Assault On Precinct 13

Director John Capenter's 2nd film involves a nearly abandoned precinct in L.A. that is besieged by a violent gang of youths. Great acting and black humor make this a modern day classic. Highly considered one of Carpenter's best films, especially in Europe.
