Movie Info

Vince Ferro is a man in desperate circumstances. While on a quick fix-it job, he steals an envelope containing instructions for a mysterious job that promises a potential fortune. He assumes a false identity and follows the instructions, only to find himself a numbered participant in an underworld Russian roulette competition, where gamblers place bets on who'll survive when the trigger is pulled. The stakes are high, but the payout is more than he can resist. Many are competing for the first time, and a precious few have even returned to play again, but are his odds any better than other players in this most deadly game? What will it take to be the last man standing? -- (C) Anchor Bay

Géla Babluani's English-language remake of his French debut loses the source's gritty, mysterious gloom.

October 28, 2011 | Full Review…

"13'' is Gela Babluani's American remake of his successful 2005 Georgian-language film "13 Tzameti.'' He should have left well enough alone.

October 28, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A tense, paranoid nightmare with a chilly metaphysical overview has been trampled into a blustering, bad cartoon.

October 27, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5

Making a film about the cutthroat world of Russian Roulette is a little like making a gambling thriller about the card game War.

Top Critic

A starry cast and glossier production values simply work against the black-and-white original's strengths in this stillborn thriller.

October 26, 2011

Aside from some character-defining flashbacks, a godawful score and sweat-enhancing color photography, it's the same movie as before -- a divertingly tense yet superficial time-waster.

Audience Reviews for 13

A sharp, stylish, edgy and tension-charged thriller. It's a thrilling, nail-biting and exceptionally performed and well-crafted film. Director, Gela Bablunai takes his classic original film and gives it a new life and darkness to explore for a new audience. A story with intense choices, compelling characters and brutally explosive consequences that chill you to the bone. A chilling and suspenseful movie that's gut-wrenching, cripplingly disturbing and eye-opening, strong and riveting movie. It packs a full-clip of intensity and has the impact of a hot slug from a gun. An outstanding cast of actors who do a great job with their supporting roles. Sam Riley gives an excellent performance, making a wonderful lead character. Ray Winstone is brilliant. Mickey Rourke is fantastic Rourke and Winstone add some empathy to their characters due to their harsh surroundings and brutal nature that surrounds them. Jason Statham is terrific, he brings a great mystery to his character as well as greed and brief emotional regret.

3 3/4's for me. This movie really had my heart racing. A little rough around the edges. Definitely Independent film style. Definitely suspenseful. My husband thought that this was a strange movie..I found it intriguing, and a bit shocking, at times. Plenty of familiar faces were invlolved in this project...

Very good movie, impressive! I heard this was a remake, I didn't see the original but this was a very edgy heart-pumping film. The movie keeps you guessing what's gonna happen and even though some actors are not used to there full potential it was good enough. Loved the ending very wicked!!! A naive young man assumes a dead man's identity and finds himself embroiled in an underground world of power, violence, and chance where men gamble behind closed doors on the lives of other men.
