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

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… More

Unfortunately, 13 is a rather dull and monotonous film that lacks any compelling characters. With some big-name stars like Jason Statham and Mickey Rourke one… More
