My Letterboxd review
"A fairly rare Canadian "siege" film which feels like Assault On Precinct 13 meets Home Alone. It also builds a subtle slasher vibe as the film progresses. It starts out strong with some nasty violence, sags a little for the next 20 as the situation is established but then moves quickly after that. Maybe for Canadian cult completists only, but I'd recommend a watch. My copy was a very dark VHS rip."
Soundtrack: Keith Emerson - Main Theme
Directed by Bruce Malmuth
Starring Sylvester Stallone, Rutger Hauer and Billy Dee Williams
My Letterboxd Review:
"Way better than I expected. I put this one off for a while and I'm not sure why. Rutger Hauer in one of his best roles and he's never been more evil than in this. Some of Stallone's lines were a little weak/predictable but he's convincing too. Great grimy NYC atmosphere. High recommend."
