Duration: 1 Hour 50 Minutes

(2005) Brutal and violent, -- though reasonably gripping -- story of a desolate Detroit police precinct under siege by crooked police who are out to silence a criminal (Laurence Fishburne) incarcerated there, to cover up what he knows about corruption within their ranks, creating an unusual alliance between the police and criminals within the station house who must unite to defend themselves. Jean-Francois Richet’s remake of the 1976 film features good performances by Fishburne, Ethan Hawke and Brian Dennehy, but the bloodshed and violence seem unnecessarily explicit, and the improbable story calls for major suspension of disbelief. Graphic and bloody violence and related gore, much rough, crude and profane language, some sexual innuendo. (L -- limited adult audience) (R – restricted) Showtime (cable)
