STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) A soon-to-be-closed precinct became the target of a massive gun-battle by an army of street-gang members hell-bent for revenge.
2) An unusual partnership between a cop and a prisoner. A cop releasing 2 prisoners to save the precinct is very similar to Sholay (1975) train-scene.
3) A definitive John Carpenter’s cult-action movie with 91 minutes running time.
4) Darwin Joston’s intriguing character [Napoleon Wilson] with an unusually calm demeanor.

 

CONS –
N/A

 
QUOTE –
Leigh: The very least of our problems is that we’re out of time.
Wilson: It’s an old story with me. I was born out of time.
