Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas
Smart, satisfying action entertainment that is also a perceptive work of considerable artistry.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
For what it is, Assault on Precinct 13 delivers. It's not great art, but, for B-movie fans and those looking for a mid-winter jolt of energy, it's good fun.
The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
The 1976 John Carpenter original has been reworked enough to give the urban thriller a distinct flavor of its own, and stars Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne provide enough gravitas to keep things involving.
Variety - Joe Leydon
In an era when similar genre pics increasingly resemble videogames, musicvideos or glossy commercials, the blunt, brawny simplicity of helmer Jean-Francois Richet's storytelling style seems positively novel.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - Ken Tucker
It's simply an astringent action flick that uses the wounded sensitivity of Ethan Hawke and Fishburne's witty hauteur to give the shoot-'em-up scenes some juice.
