In this slick remake of John Carpenter's 1976 cult classic, cop Jake Roenick (Ethan Hawke) is the officer seeing the New Year in at Detroit's soon-to-be-closed Precinct 13 station when crime lord Marion Bishop (Laurence Fishburne) is dumped on his doorstep during a snowstorm. Overwrought Roenick is running just a skeleton staff...and his problems get worse when mobsters - sporting body armour and laser-sighted sniper's rifles - turn up to bust Bishop out. And they aren't fussy about taking prisoners.
