A very well done story, with a nice dark comedic tone (at least up until the end). Its surprisingly gritty, and the changes they make from Wells' novel are honestly shocking. An iconic film that is actually enjoyable.
Anna...the missing dream. The love of every life...Anna, oh anna where art thou? Oh anna, theres nothing to strive for anymore now that you flee. The belief is gone...in you, in reality, in love, in life, in the soul. Anna, my love, my forgotten dream. My forgotten sickness.
My forgotten heart.
John Carpenter is one of those directors like Suzuki where they have the talent to become a great, thought provoking director, but instead decide to make cheesy action movies. And I wouldn't want it any other way. Precinct 13 is a hardhitting, complex beat-em-up film that only Carpenter could truly create. With political discourse surging unapologetically through its veins, this is the movie Bigalow's Detroit wishes it could be.
An explosion of sixties culture, race, sex, and above all, freaking zombies, man! Boy do I love this! Its hopeless, gritty, stark...my kinda movie. Plus the lee harvey oswald-esque end was really incredible. Can't believe I've been waiting so long to see this brilliant film.
