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

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

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

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

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

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.

[A] half-hearted redundancy, which often looks and sounds like something Charles Bronson paid bills with in 1979.

The anticlimactic final half hour, which is capped off with an oddly (and needless) downbeat finish, cements the film's place as a curiously half-baked piece of work...

A one-trick movie, with prefab suspense but also prefab plotting to undercut said suspense.

Despite a big, Hollywood budget allowing for a more grisly and more graphic, high attrition-rate adventure, this disappointing remake somehow still adds up to less. Rent the original.

October 29, 2011 Full Review Source:

This is a lumpy, dumb, suspenseless thing that sometimes scarcely feels finished.

October 27, 2011 Full Review Source: Movieline

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

It's not quite the disastrous remake it could've been; however, by changing so little, Babluani has made the same mistakes all over again.

October 26, 2011 Full Review Source:

Reinforces the popular notion that remakes are essentially low-reaching affairs that result from a lack of ideas.

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.
