Less is indeed more with Rogue Pictures’ remake of John Carpenter’s low-budget 1976 thriller “Assault on Precinct 13.”

With a bigger budget and star cast toplined effectively by Ethan Hawke and Laurence Fishburne, French helmer Jean-Francois Richet’s update spares no expense on firepower but comes up decidedly less suspenseful than Carpenter’s original — itself an update of Howard Hawks’ “Rio Bravo.” Tellingly, extras on the DVD release focus on the pic’s armory, set design and stunts more than its characters. Deleted scenes offer no alternate insights, and there’s no commentary track illuminating any part of the process.
