    The Hollywood Reporter

    As leaden as the bullets whose random behavior it revolves around, Géla Babluani's 13 fails to recapture the sweaty tension of his original 13 Tzameti, a French import that reeked of style and first-timer ambition. show more

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

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    While the original was an art-house success, this English-language redo, now getting a one-week run after sitting on the shelf for a year and a half, doesn't measure up. show more

    Slant Magazine

    The filmmakers are so generally clueless about getting the most out of a provocative concept that it's like running into a subtextual brick wall. show more

    Keith Uhlich Time Out New York

    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. show more

    Michael Atkinson Village Voice

    Lumbers, stumbles, and blows all its secrets at the outset. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    What does it add up to? Nothing much. A tense, paranoid nightmare with a chilly metaphysical overview has been trampled into a blustering, bad cartoon. show more

    Dennis Harvey Variety

    A starry cast and glossier production values simply work against the black-and-white original's strengths in this stillborn thriller about a deadly game of chance. show more

    Nathan Rabin The A.V. Club

    For a film about a "sport" where every competition is literally a matter of life and death, the oddly inert, suspense-free 13 is strangely lacking in urgency. show more

    A gut-wrencher! Violent & suspenseful - It takes Russian roulette to the next level - Statham & Rourke take lead alongside a handful of familiar faces! This is edge of your seat suspense in one of the most raw ways I\'ve seen in film, to-date.

    Piece of **** movie, overly suspenseful, overly bloody, not a very strong plot, terrible ending, terrible acting(if it can even be called that), etc. I could probably summarize the plot in one sentence. Kids family needs money so whilst on a job he reads a guys mail and follows the instructions on a letter and ends up at some middle of nowhere mansion where people gamble on russian roulette and he ends up as a player, he wins, and then the brother of the guy he shot to win kills him and takes the money. ****** movie, ****** plot, ****** ending, all round ****** ****** movie.
