Car­pen­ter cult clas­sic re­mas­tered on Blu-ray

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Food and Drink - As­sault On Precinct 13 Sec­ond sight, cert 15 Blu-ray 2-disc set £24.99

THE 40th An­niver­sary of John Car­pen­ter’s cult film was marked by a pre-Christ­mas DVD set and now comes the ul­ti­mate re-mas­tered Blu-ray Lim­ited Edi­tion with best-ever pic­ture and sound.

It’s an Alamo-like story of a small group of de­fend­ers at an about-to-be-closed-down ghetto po­lice sta­tion bat­tling to hold off a horde of thugs in­tent on get­ting in to kill them. Un­der siege and with power and phone lines cut, lone cop Ethan Bishop (Austin Stoker) and his skele­ton staff – in­clud­ing two sec­re­taries - have to re­cruit DeathRow-bound­pris- on­erNapoleonWil­son(Dar­win Jos­ton) and his cell­mate Wells (Tony Bur­ton) to join in a fight for life. Car­pen­ter skil­fully de­vel­ops the char­ac­ters and the ten­sion amidst the hell-for­leather ac­tion. Fans will love all the ex­tras too.
