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.

Gla 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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