Audience Reviews for The Thirteenth Floor

  • Oct 06, 2013
    I quite enjoyed the complexity of this film. Somewhat like the Matrix in that the question is "what is real?". I had the advantage that I recorded it on my PVR, so I could go back over the parts that were most confusing.

    Not a total dud but not very memorable either, "The Thirteenth Floor" is mostly a hit-or-miss affair that ends on a dull note but is at least entertaining enough so that your time spent watching it doesn't feel completely wasted. The visuals are nice and the premise is clever, but the script is bland and uninspired and the acting is pretty unremarkable. It's moderately interesting, but that's about the only thing that "The Thirteenth Floor" has going for it.

    Mediocre at best. The ending is cool, though not mind-blowingly unpredictable. The buildup is way too long, and though the first twist is a bit unpredictable, the second is painfully obvious. More attention could be given to 1937 LA considering this is a 2 hour film, and I think it be appropriate to show some of the alternate universes considering that they're mentioned multiple times.

    While the premise and visuals are unique and have tons of potential, the weak script and far out there plot put a damper on anything good that works in the film.
